All eyes were on AMC tonight, as it aired the finale episode of The Walking Dead's seventh season. With all them eyeballs glued to their television sets, 20th Century Fox couldn't pass up the opportunity to release a new trio of television spots -- titled "Run,"Pray," and "Hide" -- for Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant.
“It’s legitimately freaky a lot of the stuff that’s in this film,” Covenant star Katherine Waterston told IGN. “I’ve had these amazing moments when I’ve walked past my trailer and seen my friend’s head on a stick. So there have been times when I’ve thought it was the actor in front of me when it was a bean bag body with a perfect face. That’s actually one of the most chilling things to witness - is your friends all…damaged.”
Director Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with ALIEN: COVENANT, a new chapter in his groundbreaking ALIEN franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the "synthetic" David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.
The cast features Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, and Benjamin Rigby.
Alien: Covenant opens in theaters on May 19, 2017.
