Alien: Covenant trailer has finally made its debut online. This is going to be the sixth film in Alien franchise and the second chronologically. It takes place a decade after the events of Prometheus. Back when Prometheus was released, it had divided fans like only a few have. Covenant will try to fill that gap. Ridley Scott is helming this movie and its speculated that it will pick a few successful plot threads from Prometheus. But the huge jump in time and a totally new cast suggests it might as well be the soft reboot for the franchise.
The movie has following official premise : Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant find what they believe to be an uncharted paradise. What the crew discover is a dark, dangerous world, whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition. Set as the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus, Alien: Covenant connects directly to Ridley Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. It begins with the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy. There, the crew discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
The film is scheduled to be released on May 19, 2017.
