Three exclusive previews from Alien: Covenant have been released ahead of its release next month and it promises a tremendous amount of gore.
The much awaited return to Ridley Scott’s cult-classic franchise comes five years after Scott’s 2012 Alien prequel, Prometheus. Covenant will appear on the timeline after Prometheus but before the original 1979 Alien – meaning we will see another set of crew members adventuring off into an unknown paradise whilst meeting the wrath of the iconic Xenomorphs.
The TV spots – titled appropriately as ‘Run’, ‘Hide’ and ‘Pray,’ premiered during the broadcast of The Walking Dead season seven finale last night – give a clear glimpse into the dark environment and what it has in store for the crew as they arrive. Fans will be extremely thrilled to find that Scott is bringing the franchise back to its original horror (and bloody) roots with the return of the much loved Face-huggers.
Covenant starring Katherine Waterston, Michael Fassbender, James Franco and Danny McBride premieres May 19 in the US and May 12 in the UK.
