Alien Covenant: Trailer 2 has arrived

The path to paradise begins in hell

In case you were in any doubt about this being an Alien film, there’s plenty of the unfriendly Xenomorph on display in the trailer. It also seems to be following the horror movie pattern of meeting a bunch of mostly likeable people and then watching them get killed in order of how stupid they are.

Alien originator  Ridley Scott is back in the director’s chair hoping to put right what once went wrong with Prometheus.  Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, James Franco, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride and Demián Bichir star with a script written by John Logan and Dante Harper.

Alien: Covenant arrives in cinemas on 29 May 2017
