Alien: Covenant Poster & New Release Date

The first thing you notice about the Alien: Covenant poster that has just been put online via 20th Century Fox's Twitter feed is the slavering jaws of a xenomorph (or whatever version exists in the film). And then you might also notice that the image indicates a change for the film - it'll arrive in May next year, instead of August.


Alien: Covenant finds director Ridley Scott heading back to the Alien universe after Prometheus, and following a colony ship called the Covenant headed for a remote planet, a place that the crew initially thinks is an uncharted paradise but turns out to be dark and full of terrors. And the only inhabitant is synthetic life form David (Michael Fassbender), who claims to be the lone survivor of the Prometheus mission.

Katherine Waterston, Demián Bichir, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez, Billy Crudup and Danny McBride make up the ship's crew, and it appears we'll catch up with Noomi Rapace's Dr. Elizabeth Shaw. Plus we'll be getting a double dose of Fassbender, as he's also playing another synthetic, this one named Walter.

Alien: Covenant, which was originally scheduled for 4 August, now seems scheduled for 19 May, which should be day and date both here and in the US. Can the trailer be far behind, given that altered release?

And while we're talking release dates, the studio has also announced dates for two untitled superhero movies, one for 2 November, 2018, and another on 14 February, 2019. Given Deadpool 2's recent hiring of director David Leitch, it's a fair bet it'll fill one of those slots (probably the 2018 slot). The other is more of a mystery for now, but possibly a new X-Men movie (even if it isn't the further adventures of Xavier and co.) Then there is a slot scheduled for 21 December, 2018 to be filled by an "untitled" film from James Cameron's Lightstorm Entertainment. With Cameron previously targeting Christmastime releases for the Avatar sequels, you have to think this means Avatar 2 finally has a new home. Wonder why they didn't bother to name it, unless JC has been quietly producing something else? Where would the man find the time?
