Watch the searing new trailer for Alien: Covenant

A brand red-band trailer for Alien: Covenant has been unveiled, click below to watch it. 

Alien: Covenant stars Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace, who return from Prometheus. They are joined by a newly cast Danny McBride, Katherine Waterston, Demián Bichir, Jussie Smollett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez, Billy Crudup, James Franco, Alexander England and Benjamin Rigby. 

Last year the movie saw its release date brought forward. The movie was originally due to be released on August 4th next year but has now seen its release date brought forward to May 12th in 2017. 

It is the follow-up to Prometheus and picks up after the events of that movie. In this film, we follow the crew of the colony ship Covenant who find what they believe to be an uncharted paradise in a remote galaxy. Instead what the crew discover is a dark, dangerous world, whose sole inhabitant is the synthetic David, the survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

The trailer is action-packed and offers a much longer look at the creatures the team face when they land on their intended destination. 

A further sequel to Alien, this time directed by District 9's Neill Blomkamp, was in pre-production last year and was set to shoot in 2017, but has now been shelved due to Scott's plans.
