20th Century Fox Reveals ‘Alien: Covenant’ Title, Release Date And Synopsis | Film News

PROM-002 - Logan Marshall-Green, left, Noomi Rapace, and Michael Fassbender explore a planet in the darkest corners of the universe.

 

After Ridley Scott let slip the new title for the Prometheus sequel, 20th Century Fox have officially confirmed the new film will be called Alien: Covenant. Scott had previously referrred to the film as Alien: Paradise Lost. Alongside this news, Fox also confirmed a new release date of October 6, 2017, opening against Warner Bros’ Andy Serkis-directed Jungle Book: Origins. A new synopsis was also revealed, giving us our first pieces of the film’s story:

 

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. 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 begins production in Australia this coming February. Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender are set to reprise their roles from the first films. Ridley Scott directs from a screenplay by Michael Green (Green Lantern) and Jack Paglen (Transcendence).
