Director Ridley Scott’s upcoming film Alien: Covenant has fans of the franchise very excited. Today we can report that Scott has confirmed that we will see the Xenomorphs in all of their classic forms in the film. Scott also revealed a few details about Covenant.
We’ll have them all, egg, face-hugger, chest-burster, then the big boy.” Scott stated in a recent interview. “They’re going to go to the planet where the engineers came from, and come across the evolving creature that they had made.” Scott continued. “Why did they make it? Why would they make such a terrifying beast? It felt bio-mechanoid, it felt like a weapon. And so the movie will explain that, and reintroduce the alien back into it.
Fox has released a short synopsis for Covenant.
It begins with the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy. There, the crew 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.”
We will see Noomi Rapace return to her role as Elizabeth Shaw. It will be a while before we see Alien: Covenant, it will land in theaters on August 4, 2017.
