Opening: “Alien: Covenant” in Theaters Everywhere (5/19/2017)

As previously discussed, a sequel of sorts is coming for “Prometheus” by way of “Alien: Covenant” and all of these things are still stories that happened way BEFORE the first “Alien” film. I posted the Official Trailer some time ago on THIS LINK and now my Xenomorph loving friends, the time for the opening of this film is here. Behold the Theatrical Release poster along with premise and casting. My two cents will close this up.

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)

Some Cast:
Michael Fassbender as Walter and David
Katherine Waterston as Daniels
Billy Crudup
Danny McBride as the pilot of Covenant
Demián Bichir
Noomi Rapace as Dr. Elizabeth Shaw
Guy Pearce as Peter Weyland

Warner Brothers Pictures: “Blade Runner 2049” Official Trailer

It’s been an exciting few days on the film media side of the fence with the resounding response to the opening of the “Guardians Of The Galaxy” Vol. 2 film and during the viewing that I did on Monday morning, I saw the short teaser trailer for the upcoming “Blade Runner 2049” film which is of course the next chapter from the “Blade Runner” movie that came out way back in 1982. When I got home I saw that a full trailer was online care of the Warner Brothers Pictures and I am happy to share it with you now. Check it out.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This might surprise you a little bit if you know anything about my personal interest in so many different Science Fiction franchises, but I have never, ever, watched “Blade Runner” straight through and when I say this my longest time friends shake their respective heads saying “but how???” – Truth be told I don’t know how that ended up happening but it just did. I guess I got lost somewhere along the lines with the galaxies far, far, away and by boldly going where no one has gone before stuff. This admission finds me now on a mission to finally sit and enjoy this film and catch up to what everyone loved about it. I liked what I saw in the trailer and with today’s special effects the playing field is rather limitless. So what do you readers think about this trailer and the idea of a sequel to the classic Science Fiction story? Let me know in the comments section below.
