Alien: Covenant new poster faces off with the beast

Katherine Waterston is in trouble in the new Alien: Covenant poster

A new poster for Alien: Covenant has arrived, and Katherine Waterston’s Daniels is facing off with the big guy itself.

While it doesn’t have the mad majesty of the earlier Giger-inspired one-sheet, this is a nice reminder that the classic xenomorph will be making short work of the crew of the Covenant.

Alien: Covenant stars Michaael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Demian Bichir, Billy Crudup, Carmen Ejogo, Jussie Smollett, Amy Seimetz, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England and James Franco.

“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 be released on 12 May. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
