ALIEN: COVENANT Trailer Bridges the Gap Between ALIEN and PROMETHEUS

Now this might just be the Alien prequel we’ve all been waiting for.

Yes, finally, when we land on an alien world, we are armed. Will it help? Considering we see a chestburster about to take  a U-turn and bust out of a person’s back, I suspect not.

That said, it looks like Alien: Covenant will combine the mysterious excitement of finding a brave new planet with the blood-drenched violence we expect from the parasitic xenomorph we know and love. Evolution moved fast to get the hammer-headed Deacon creature from Prometheus up to speed as the killer critter we know and love. Though if spores can enter your ear to make the lethal symbiosis happen, we are well and truly doomed.

James Franco is nowhere to be seen in the trailer, which may suggest a different and significant role (remember how late Guy Pearce’s part as Peter Weyland was revealed). Here’s hoping he plays a crazy auteur who somehow plans to direct the xenomorphs in a movie of some sort. Or, y’know, not.

Regardless, it looks like the latest Alien movie is at least pumping up the fear. Even though you may know how the creature emerges, the right circumstances can still creep you out. Is Ridley Scott still able to do that? Judging from what we see here, yes, yes he is.

Are you licking your inner jaws for more Alien? In space, can anyone nearby hear us scream for joy? Will the Engineers return and explain their elephantine helmets? You tell us. In comments, everyone can hear you talk back.
