The path to paradise begins in Hell.
We told you earlier in the week that a brand new red band trailer for Alien: Covenant was going to be attached to Logan this weekend, and we were correct about that. The trailer, which just hit the net, is virtually the same as the crazy cool one we already saw on Tuesday night, but there are some minor differences that at least make it worth bringing to your attention.
The new trailer features an added shot from the original trailer, a tad bit more blood, and even an F-bomb, but the most interesting thing is the shot you’ll find at 1:44. That shot (above) shows what looks to be a skinned corpse that we can only assume, based on things we’ve heard, is part of David’s mad scientist laboratory where he’s experimenting on the Engineers.
Why was this removed for the green band trailer? Beats the hell out of us, but it makes for a fun little Easter egg in the new one that should hold you over until we see more.
Check out the mostly-the-same red band trailer below.
Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice, Jobs, The Babysitters) stars with Michael Fassbender returning as Prometheus‘ android David (and Walter), with a crew that includes Demian Bichir and Danny McBride (“Eastbound and Down”), as well as Alex England (Gods of Egypt), Billy Crudup, Amy Seimetz (A Horrible Way to Die, “The Killing”), Jussie Smollett (“Empire”), Carmen Ejogo, and Callie Hernandez (Machete Kills). James Franco also has a role.
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
Ridley Scott had previously promised to answer questions that left Prometheus viewers confused: “Covenant is really going to show you who did it and why.”
Alien: Covenant takes off for Paradise on May 19, 2017.
