Alien: Covenant poster has an egg and a simple instruction

Don’t approach the new Alien: Covenant poster

The new poster for Alien: Covenant has arrived and, similarly to their ‘Run’ poster, it’s keeping its message simple: classic aliens, same threat. It also seems to have a new UK release date: 12 May, as opposed to 19 May.

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 19 May. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
