As a special treat this holiday season, the very first trailer for Alien: Covenant was released at midnight. So sit back and be filled with best feelings of the season: fear.


Also, sex in the shower looks terrifying.

Here’s the official synopsis from Fox:

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. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.


Alien: Covenant comes out May 19, 2017.

I am cautiously optimistic. I liked the trailer.

Also I know this may be unpopular, but I think Prometheus was entertaining as a whole (I admit it had plot holes and idiot characters too).
