Alien: Covenant Is Going Back To It’s Sci-Fi/Horror Routes In The Best Ways In New Trailer

The Red Band trailer for Ridley Scott’s return to the Alien franchise looks chilling and blood thirsty in the ways we’ve wanted since we were polarized by his prequel film Prometheus. As the director of the film, he has clearly returned to the body horror that made the films so scary and terrifying and it looks like his star studded cast is ready to bring everything back to life.

Katherine Waterson (Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them) stars as the lead female protagonist which many have speculated could be a character who is somehow related to Ripley played by Sigourney Weaver in the original four films. Michael Fassbender also returns to the franchise as the android David who set in motion the events of Prometheus back in 2012.

The trailer is genuinely scary and violent in all ways that the original films were like. Hopefully we don’t just get senseless, gratuitous bloodshed just because he feels he wants to bring back the frightening nostalgia. It’s a sci-fi film after all and we want to see cool, man eating aliens in the process.

The film comes out May 19th, 2017
