Fox has unleashed an intense new international trailer for Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant.
The new two-minute trailer doesn’t show an awful lot of new footage, but does give us a bit more Xenomorph attack action as one stalks the unfortunate crew of the titular colony ship Covenant.
Basically, they’re probably all screwed.
The new trailer uses the same tagline of “the path to paradise begins in hell” that was in the trailer unveiled earlier this month.
That clip gave us a bit more of an idea how the crew of the Covenant find themselves in danger as they come across what they think is an unexplored nirvana, only to discover it’s actually a Xenomorph-filled nightmare.
At least we now know where the Xenomorphs came from as a preview this week answered a long-standing question about the origin of the aliens.
It seems that it was all android David’s (Michael Fassbender) fault. After his meddling in Prometheus, it looks like in the intervening years, he has perfected the creatures seen at the end of that movie into the familiar facehuggers we know.
Back in January, we were lucky enough to get a glimpse of the carnage in store with three scenes from Alien: Covenant and it looks like it’ll be very violent, very scary and very Alien.
Alien: Covenant bursts into UK cinemas on May 12 and US cinemas on May 19.
