It’s been a pretty big day for Alien: Covenant news; we’ve had confirmation from James Franco that he’s appearing in the film, as well as a new official image (potentially teasing the inclusion of Colonial Marines), and now comes word that the first trailer has been classified.
Trailer Track is reporting that Germany’s film board FSK has classified the first trailer for Ridley Scott’s latest foray into the iconic sci-fi franchise, and that it’s expected to arrive online over the weekend some time. It will also reportedly feature a David Bowie cover as its soundtrack.
As soon as it hits, we’ll be sure to bring it to you…
Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
Alien: Covenant is set for release on May 19th, 2017 and is penned by Michael Green, Jack Paglen and John Logan. Prometheus stars Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace return alongside new cast additions as Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice), Danny McBride (Eastbound & Down), Demian Bichir (A Better Life), Billy Crudup (Watchmen), Jussie Smollett (Empire), Carmen Ejogo (Selma), Amy Seimetz (Upstream Color), Benjamin Rigby (That’s Not Me), Callie Hernandez (Machete Kills) and James Franco (Why Him?).
