Another unexpected treat on this holiday is a brand new poster for director Ridley Scott‘s next Alien movie, titled Alien: Covenant. It’s about as simple as they come, and it’s a safe bet that no fan of the franchise is going to have even the slightest problem with that.
Even more exciting? The poster has a release date on it, and it is not the October 6, 2017 date we previously knew about, nor is it the even earlier August 4, 2017 date it got pushed up to. Unlike most movies, which often get delayed, the new Alien is moving closer once again with a new May 19, 2017 release date.

Set as the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus, Alien: Covenant connects directly to Ridley Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. It begins with the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy. There, the crew discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
Alien: Covenant stars Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Guy Pearce, and Amy Seimetz.
