It’s hard to keep up in today’s day and age, with reboots, remakes, sequels, spin-offs and whatever other kind of franchise connection Hollywood is conjuring up every second day, launching into our cinemas every week. Ridley Scott established the Alien franchise way back in 1979 and finally returned to the series in 2012 with Prometheus aka Mr. I Have A Great Trailer But The Actual Film Is Kind Of Dogshit.

“Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, members (Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup) of the colony ship Covenant discover what they think to be an uncharted paradise.

The mysterious world soon turns dark and dangerous when a hostile alien life-form forces the crew into a deadly fight for survival.”
