Alien: Covenant Issues Release Date In Teaser Poster
The first teaser poster for next year’s addition to the Alien series (Alien: Covenant) just recently dropped on twitter with both the suspected release date for the film, as well as a warning. “Run” is in big letters at the top of the poster, as a half cloaked figure (which clearly looks like the typical Alien monstrosity) gnarls its teeth and salivates uncontrollably. Alien: Covenant is set to release May 19th, which is a bit earlier than it’s previously determined date of August, 4th.

The Alien series first premiered to haunt audiences in 1979 and continued to do the same since both on the big screen and in the hands of the fans in multiple versions of video gaming dating back to 1994 in Alien vs Predator, which was available on Atari Jaguar and Atari Lynx.
Alien: Covenant is a follow up for the 2012 movie Prometheus and is being directed by Ridley Scott (Blade Runner, Prometheus, The Martian). Some notable names heading the cast for the new film is the lovely Michael Fassbender (Assassin’s Creed, X-Men: Apocalypse), Katherine Waterson (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) and Noomi Rapace (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows)
