It’s difficult to get a real gauge on the feel of the film as hyperbole can often come along with the excitement of seeing footage early, however early signs are positive and fans of the franchise should take solace in the fact that Alien’s horror roots does seem to be a main element of the movie.
Of course, this week we have received a silo of intriguing images of Alien: Covenant – indicating a countdown to a trailer this weekend.
Alien: Covenant is scheduled for a May 19, 2017 release date
