Members of the press at a 20th Century Fox special 2017 preview event in New York were shown 15 minutes of footage as well as a new trailer for Alien: Covenant. Some spoilers ahead.
What the press had to say and write for Ridley Scott’s latest is in the line of gory, horror, bloody, terrifying, disgusting…
We think it is safe to say that initial reactions are quite positive!
Here are some collected by Cinemablend:
FOX just showed us first footage from Alien: Covenant. Make no mistake. This is a full blown, bloody HORROR film, in line with original.

The film follows the crew members of the colony ship Covenant who are headed toward a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy and discover what they believe to be an uncharted paradise. It is actually a dark, menacing world in which the only inhabitant is the synthetic David (Michael Fassbender), a survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
Alien: Covenant premieres on May 19, 2017.
