Screen Junkies has unveiled its Honest Trailer for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus sequel / Alien prequel Alien: Covenant; check it out below…
When Ridley Scott wanted to wank about the meaning of life for two hours, he gave us Prometheus. Now, he’s back with a good old fashioned alien flick that returns to it’s Sci-Fi, horror roots — until it takes a sharp left turn into the same wank job territory as the last one.
In a franchise full of unforgettable characters, experience a chapter where NO ONE stands out — except maybe Kenny Powers. And meet the crew of The Covenant, married couples who you completely forget are married until someone says, “my wife.”
Ride along and experience a bad sci-fi script in the hands of a visual genius as you enjoy shot after epic shot while ignoring how all the tech looks way more advanced in the prequel.
Please let me know if there’s anything else I can send for coverage consideration.
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 sees Ridley Scott reuniting with Prometheus star Michael Fassbender and new cast additions 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), Tess Haubrich (The Wolverine) and James Franco (Why Him?).
