Set for release this weekend, Alien: Covenant is absolutely dominating social media at the moment. The Twitter hashtags #AlienCovenant, #XenoEvil and #SheWontGoQuietly all bring special Covenant emojis to life, and you’ve probably seen all kinds of promoted ads over on Facebook. But don’t worry Snapchatters, because you haven’t been left out in the cold.
Today saw the premiere of a special Alien: Covenant filter over on Snapchat, which transforms you (yes, YOU!) into a Xenomorph. The filter puts a Xenomorph head atop your own, and when you open your mouth or tilt your head, the Xeno head does the same. It even makes a horrifying screaming sound and yes, your new inner mouth shoots out at your discretion. Try it out and check out my personal results below!
Katherine Waterston stars in the film while Michael Fassbender returns as Prometheus‘ android David (and Walter), with a crew that includes Demian Bichir and Danny McBride, as well as Alex England, James Franco, Billy Crudup, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Carmen Ejogo, and Callie Hernandez.
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, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
Alien: Covenant takes off for Paradise on May 19, 2017.
