Alien: Covenant's cast and crew have been promising for some time that the latest movie in the sci-fi horror franchise would be a scary ride. Some new images have arrived via Empire, and they certainly suggest this, including one particularly gruesome still of the movie's new creature, known as a Neomorph. Check out two pictures below, and one with a potential spoiler at the end of this story:
These new images follow a series of promotional teasers that were released earlier this week. They took the form of video messages left by crew members for their families back home--you can check the first two out here, while the subsequent ones are here and here.
Directed by Ridley Scott, Alien: Covenant stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, James Franco, Danny McBride, and Demian Bichir. An intense full trailer was released in February, which followed this special prologue. There was also a disturbing poster for the movie.
Scott has promised several more movies in the series over the next few years. Last month he revealed that the name of the next film will be Alien: Awakening, and it will sit chronologically between 2012's Prometheus and Covenant.
"There will be another one before we kind of literally and logically, clockwise, back into the rear back head of [the original] Alien," he said. "It will go Prometheus, Awakening, Covenant. There will be more after this. If this is successful, and then the next one, and then there will definitely be three more."
Alien: Covenant arrives in theaters on May 19 in the US and May 12 in the UK.
