Fox announced today the impending film Alien: Covenant, the second in the Prometheus prequel trilogy. While not much has been released regarding the upcoming film, we do have a release date set for October 6, 2017 as well as an official title image. Oh, and we’re getting more Michael Fassbender.
Here is the official synopsis released by the studio:
Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
