The new trailer for ‘Alien: Covenant’ has arrived. Bringing the terrifying action as promised from director Ridley Scott. In a recent interview with The Wrap Scott promised a new direction for the Alien franchise. Saying that the time for the old beast had quite possibly run its course:
“But after four [Alien films], I think it wears out a little bit. There’s only so much snarling you can do. I think you’ve got to come back with something more interesting. And I think we’ve found the next step. I thought the Engineers were quite a good start.”
Scott then followed up saying that maybe the idea shouldn’t be completely pushed to the wayside, in fact, it should maybe be revisited again:
“There was always this discussion: is Alien, the character, the beast, played out or not? We’ll have them all: egg, face-hugger, chest-burster, then the big boy,” Scott told The Wrap in December. “I think maybe we can go another round or two.”
‘Alien: Covenant’ stars: Michael Fassbender, Danny McBride, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup and James Franco.
