Remember when Alien: Covenant revealed it's first official poster with a new release date? Well, they've done it again! Check out the new poster below.
Originally when the first official poster for Alien: Covenant was released (see it here), it was released with the date of May 19th, a massive push from the original date of August 4th. But now, with the second official poster released, we have another brand new date of May 12.
So, now we're getting the sequel to Prometheus and prequel to Alien a week earlier than the revised release date. Which you'll not hear me complain about. Everything about this film looks like director Ridley Scott is returning the original style and feel of the 1979 movie.
As you can see, this poster is of the egg in which the dreaded Facehugger alien emerges from, latching into the face of any unsuspecting victim. With the caption "Hide", it follows on nicely from the first poster's "Run". I'm personally a big fan of this raw and minimalist approach being taken in the film's print marketing. It's very true to the original film.
Alien: Covenant will see the return of Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace from Prometheus as the spaceship Covenant discovers a 'paradise lost', the crew starring Danny McBride, Billy Crudup and lead actor Katherine Waterston (who we saw recently as Porpentina Goldstein in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them ).
With this new release date, we are expecting to run and hide on 12th May this year.
