Official ‘Alien: Covenant’ Images Prepare for a Backburster!

Ridley Scott's ALIEN: COVENANT via Twentieth Century Fox

Chestburster or backburster? The red band trailer for Alien: Covenant just dropped and we’re pretty sure that Ridley Scott is flipping the Xenomorph birth on its head.

We were able to get our hands on three official images, one of which shows Scott directing Jussie Smollett; another has our new Ripley,  Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice, Jobs, The Babysitters), exposed in a field and seemingly awaiting some sort of attack; the last shot has the wonderful Amy Seimetz (A Horrible Way to Die, “The Killing”) freaking out as something is about to burst out of Goran D. Kleut’s (?) back (see above). Carmen Ejogo doesn’t appear to know just how bad things are about to get…

In ‘Alien Covenant’: Bound for 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.

Alien: Covenant is set for release on May 19, 2017.

    Never thought the chest thing made sense – go out through the soft tissue that’s just two inches lower.

  • Werewolf

    So now the xenomorph will molt out of us like a cicada shedding it’s husk.

  • Brian McNatt

    Yeah, I read that as his body changing into an alien, rather than something bursting out of his back.

    i’m very irritated that in the trailer they seem to have completely spoiled how Carmen
    Ejogo and Amy Seimetz’s (the 2 women during the back break scene)
    characters die. actually the trailer spoils a couple of other deaths as well. kind of annoying.

      Uh… that’s a dude that has the alien burst out of his back…. so, your speculation is to blame for your annoyance. It’s a movie. Watch it, or don’t. No one gives a fuck.

        hey little Jackie, YOU obviously care since you have sand in your vagina over what i said. LOL. and your comment makes no sense in regard to what i posted. my “speculation” is 100% correct. it basically shows Carmen, Amy’s and the guy in the shower’s deaths. is reading comprehension not really your thing? i thought not. idiot.

        • JackSkellington

          I couldn’t care less. I was merely making a point that NO ONE cares. You are whining because you watched the trailer and speculate that things are given away. Is this your first viewing of a trailer?! No, didn’t think so. So surely you’re familiar with the mechanics. As for your rant… you’re either certain of your convictions, or you aren’t. You can’t profess that your speculation is 100% correct and then make a statement saying something “basically” looks to be. You’re either sure, or you aren’t. As you’ve not seen the final film your view, as is mine and everyone else’s, is pure conjecture at this time.

          • J Jett

            but you DO care. lol. if you didn’t care you wouldn’t have bothered trolling me but you came back yet again this morning to re-troll. you care and it clearly upsets you. LOL.

    I just wonder, if in Prometheus everyone’s clothes were so futuristic, but here, which is stated as direct sequel to it, has some sort of 21st century military grade suits and weapons? Those are modern M4’s right there…not the futuristic M4’s a.k.a. iconic pulse rifles.

    I have nothing against those weapons, but if they had pulse rifles, why not here?
    I hope they Ridley somehow explains it.
