It has truly been a killer week for Xenomorph fans. In the past few day, 20th Century Fox has unveiled a bunch of photos from Alien: Covenant. The sixth installment overall in the Alien film series, which will be directed by Ridley Scott.
Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
All the images below was first shared on the Alien franchise’s official Facebook page along with encrypted codes, which nobody seems to fully understand yet. Alien: Covenant is currently in post-production with a release date slated for May 19th, 2017.
The film stars Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice), Demián Bichir (The Bridge), Danny McBride (Eastbound & Down), Amy Seimetz (The Sacrament), Jussie Smollett (Empire), Carmen Ejogo (The Purge: Anarchy), Callie Hernandez (From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, Machete Kills), and Billy Crudup (Spotlight).
