As you know, a sequel of sorts is coming for “Prometheus” by way of “Alien: Covenant” and all of these things are still stories that happened BEFORE the first “Alien” film. I posted the Teaser Trailer some months ago and now we have a full on Official Trailer that gives us a little better look. Check it out below.
The Plot: Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant find what they believe to be an uncharted paradise. What the crew discover is a dark, dangerous world, whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition. (thanks Wiki)
Michael Fassbender as Walter and David
Katherine Waterston as Daniels
Danny McBride as the pilot of Covenant
Noomi Rapace as Dr. Elizabeth Shaw
Guy Pearce as Peter Weyland
James Franco as Branson
Amy Seimetz as Faris
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve said this before and will say it again about how I felt “Prometheus” was too long and too damned boring. It was visually stunning but whoah that long and convuluted story. Whew. I couldn’t wait until it was over and since this was a beginnings of sorts you don’t really see the sort of Xenomorphs that we have in the group of films we’ve all watched again and again. This one seems to go right for the gut punch and shocks and seems to have veered off the course of offering up insight on who made what and who and why. Based on this trailer it seems like the film doesn’t waste much time getting to the action and screaming times. Perhaps that is a good thing. We have to wait until May for the release and one has to wonder if an additional trailer will be released. If they do you can count on my posting one here with some side thoughts since I like keeping you up to speed in terms of the films that speak to the comic and toy items that get posted. What did you readers think of this trailer? Let me know in the comments section below.
