The first teaser poster for Alien: Covenant features a familiar beast

Alien: Covenant poster

After letting my hype for Ridley Scott's PROMETHEUS reach unattainable levels, I promised myself that I wouldn't do the same for the upcoming ALIEN: COVENANT, but I have a feeling that it's easier said than done. Despite being connected to the ALIEN franchise, Scott made it clear that he wanted PROMETHEUS to stand on its own, but he's obviously had a change of heart with the sequel as it seems to be fully embracing the ALIEN mythos and the beast at its center. The first teaser poster for ALIEN: COVENANT was released today and it features the Xenomorph we've all come to love and fear.

Simple. Effective. Spooky. I like it. Another good piece of news is that the release of ALIEN: COVENANT seems to have jumped forward by nearly three months, moving from its previous August 4, 2017 slot to May, 19, 2017. I'd imagine that a teaser trailer won't be too far off either. The upcoming PROMETHEUS sequel, which has been called a "beautiful meeting" of both ALIEN and PROMETHEUS, stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Billy Crudup, Demian Bichir and Noomi Rapace.

The official synopsis for ALIEN: COVENANT:

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS -- and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. 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.

ALIEN: COVENANT will burst into theaters on May 19, 2017.

As much as I enjoyed Prometheus, I have to wonder if the main reason this sequel is more Xenomorph-y is mostly because Ridley Scott didn't want Blomkamp's proposed Alien movie stealing his series' thunder. The studio wanted a new Alien movie, Scott didn't want a directly competing instalment of the franchise he helped create, so the compromise is Alien: Covenant. Might not totally be the case, but that's how it seems. Regardless I'm always up for more films in this Universe that aren't like

Run?

The poster is great but the word RUN is out of place. i get it, but honestly, just the Alien itself was suffice and simple.

Simple and to the point. Now that's how a poster should be done.

I like it. We know we'll be getting the standard Xenomorph in this, yet it'll be on the planet where the Engineers once inhabitant, excited to see what Scott is going to give us.

He should have embraced it with the first one!

This one already looks better than prometheus. Ridley should have kept it simple. Prometheus feels a lot like what Chronicles of Riddick was to pitch black. A missed chance because it looked beautiful.

I'm excited for this, and hopefully after this one it means we'll be that much closer to the Blomkamp film!

Holy shit I'm with you - have you seen the concept art with Ripley and Beihn? I'd much prefer a follow up that picked up after Aliens than more prequels

My heart is so torn. I didn't think Prometheus was as big a let down as people think, but it wasn't that great. It set in motion a universe I'd really like to explore, and I was hoping they'd get into the more exciting parts of the mythology with this film. So while I want to see some great world building in this one....this poster just makes me want to see someone chased around a spaceship by a monster. Hopefully it's a little bit of both.

I didn't find it a let down just more boring to be honest - the great thing Alien and Aliens did was the suspense and characters whereas Prometheus was just 'meh'

I mean, I agree, but my hopes were so high for Prometheus that "meh" was pretty disappointing.

I never been excited about a poster but I love this. Simple and terrifying. Plus it helps Im a fan of the first 3 films. The 3rd gets a lot of shit but the Directors cut makes it better.

Awesome and straight to the point. Can't wait to see this new team plus Fassbender's character go up against some xenomorphs.
