It feels like ages since Prometheus divided audiences in 2012, but here we are, five years removed from the polarizing prequel, eagerly awaiting Ridley Scott‘s prequel-sequel, Alien: Covenant.

Directed by Scott from a script by John Logan, the film follows the crew of the colony ship, Covenant, as they find what they believe to be an uncharted paradise while journeying to the far side of the galaxy. However, the land soon reveals itself to be a dangerous world inhabited by monstrous creatures that start to hunt them.

The second film of the Alien prequel series and the sixth installment overall, Alien: Covenant features a stacked cast of actors that include Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterson, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, James Franco and many more. The film is scheduled for release May 19, 2017, but you can check out the scary new trailer below and let us know what you think in the comments!
