Ridley Scott‘s upcoming Prometheus sequel, Alien: Covenant, is set to be a summer blockbuster!
The follow-up to his 2012 Alien prequel has been moved forward from October 2017, to August 2017. Scott will start shooting the movie in Australia this month.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
The actual release date, set as aside by 20th Century Fox, is August 4th, 2017. Mark your diaries now.
