The last week of December is honestly one of the most difficult for movie bloggers. There isn’t a lot of news to talk about right now. It’ll pick back up next month with the upcoming award shows, but right now? It’s like going through a buffet line right after a team of NFL players smash it.
This is why we’re showing you a trailer that was released back on Saturday. Most of you have probably seen it, but hopefully not all of you.
The first ‘Alien: Covenant‘ trailer surprised fans this past holiday weekend. Ridley Scott has (of course) returned to direct this sequel to 2012’s Prometheus. In this sequel, the crew of colony ship Covenant discover what they believe to be uncharted paradise.
But you know, it’s not. There are dangerous creatures and sh*t. In this movie, you’ll find mediocre performances from Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Katherine Waterston and Danny McBride.
It will hit a theater near you on May 19, 2017. Check out the official synopsis and trailer below.
“Headed toward a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew members of the colony ship Covenant discover what they believe to be an uncharted paradise, but it is actually a dark, menacing world in which the only inhabitant is the synthetic David (Michael Fassbender), a survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.”
