Check out the first reactions from the premiere of Alien: Covenant

Anticipation has been quite high for Ridley Scott's ALIEN: COVENANT, especially after PROMETHEUS didn't exactly blow ALIEN fans away to the degree that they were hoping. You can count me as a fan of PROMETHEUS, but I can certainly admit that there was ample room for improvement. We may still be two weeks out from the release of ALIEN: COVENANT in North America, but the film recently had its world-premiere in London and plenty of reactions have been hitting the web, including several from our own Editor-in-Chief Paul Shirey.

For the most part the general consensus seems to be that ALIEN: COVENANT does offer an improvement over PROMETHEUS, but that it isn't entirely devoid of its own problems. I suspect that we'll be hearing much more about the film once the official embargo lifts this weekend, but I'm still absolutely pumped to see what Ridley Scott has in store for us!

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 is set for a May 19th release.
