Alien: Covenant hits theatres next month, and two new promotional teasers have been released. They take the form of video messages left by crew members for their families back home. The first features Katherine Waterston, playing Daniels, while the second focuses on Billy Crudup’s character, Oram. Check them out below:
These teasers follow a series of TV spots that were released over the past few weeks. Watch these three promos, plus a teaser that uses the unlikely choice of a classic John Denver song.
Directed by Ridley Scott, Alien: Covenant also stars Michael Fassbender, 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 also revealed that the name of the next film in the series 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 last month. “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.
