This latest video follows two intense clips that were released last week–you can watch them both here.
Alien: Covenant stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, and Demian Bichir. You can read GameSpot’s review here–reviewer Eddie Makuch said it is “a fun movie that has a number of standout scenes. It is a notable improvement over Prometheus, but it runs the risk of feeling too familiar and formulaic overall.”
Earlier this week, director Ridley Scott revealed that a sequel to Covenant will start shooting next year. “We’re writing [a sequel] now, as we speak,” he said. “I’ll be filming that within 14 months.”
Scott has previously spoken about his desire to keep making Alien movies. In March, he said, “If you really want a franchise, I can keep cranking it for another six. I’m not going to close it down again. No way.”
