Ridley Scott Talks New Alien Movies – All Xenomorphs In One Place

December 15, 2015


Although Ridley Scott tried to keep the link between Prometheus and Alien under wraps while promoting the first movie back in 2012, the famous filmmaker is now going all in right from the beginning. The Prometheus franchise is now totally merging with the Alien and it is not a secret anymore. Not by a long shot.

Scott has recently been talking to The Wrap and revealed his plans on making three new installments that will lead up to the original Alien movie.

The initial movie of the upcoming trilogy is called “Alien: Covenant” and it will very much have all the beloved Xenomorph creatures in it.

“We’ll have them all. Egg, face-hugger, chest-burster, then the big boy,” he explains.

What’s Covenant All About

The director goes on to reveal that the upcoming movie will focus on a brand new crew exploring a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy.

“The crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the synthetic David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.”

“They’re going to go to the planet where the engineers came from, and come across the evolving creature that they had made. Why did they make it? Why would they make such a terrifying beast? It felt bio-mechanoid, it felt like a weapon. And so the movie will explain that, and reintroduce the alien back into it.”

Full circle, indeed. “Alien: Covenant” should hit the big screens on October 6th, 2017.
