Trailer - 'Alien: Covenant'
It's Christmas, so what better time to release a trailer for the upcoming Alien film? Ridley Scott who's hot off of The Martian hopefully still has the mojo to bring us a great new Alien flick, but his track record is notoriously up-and-down from film to film, so hopefully this breaks that trend. Anyway, watch the trailer and then scroll down if you care for my thoughts.
As cool as some aspects of this trailer are, it overall leaves me a bit underwhelmed. There's nothing about this trailer that looks new or interesting to me. Sure, I love seeing the good 'ol Xenomorph at the end, but even that spoils what looks like could have been a shocking scene if it had been saved to be witnessed for the first time in the theater. I'll say that this trailer is beautifully shot, which is no surprise as most all of Scott's films are visually appealing, I'm just worried that the movie won't differentiate itself enough from it's forebears. I hope it's good, but my expectations have been deflated.
Alien: Covenant bursts into theaters on May 19th, 2017.
