The truth is that while I liked Alien: Covenant, I didn’t love it. What’s tragic, aside for the future the prequel sets humanity up for, is that all it would have taken to make the film phenomenal was some small tweaks and changes.

Alien: Covenant lacks the same emotional heights sci-fi fans associate with Ridley Scott’s film of 1979 or James Cameron’s 1986 sequel, though it’s not without merit. Chief among the complaints is that the new film seems to sit on the franchise’s laurels rather than push it forward in the way Casino Royale did for James Bond or Logan did for X-Men. It’s been 38 years since the original Alien thriller, but this movie lacks some of the lauded learnings and innovations of modern science fiction cinema.

Rick and Morty Encounter Alien Facehugger

Two very different entertainment universes are colliding in a cross-promotion between director Ridley Scott’s latest entry in the Alien franchise, Alien: Covenant, and the hit Adult Swim animated comedy Rick and Morty.

In the short video, Rick and Morty are on one of their adventures when they receive a distress beacon. While investigating, they encounter a dreaded facehugger. Thankfully they—or at least Rick—is unknowingly prepared for this, discovering one way to survive such an attack.

Alien: Covenant Xenomorph

Alien: Covenant, the newest chapter of the Alien film franchise will hit theaters in just a few short weeks. In that time we are likely to see a lot more clips and learn a little bit more about the franchise itself.

Among those things we are learning, director Ridley Scott admits that he made a few mistakes in Prometheus. Also, when the next film starts production. And that’s not all. Fox has also released a new clip, that just reinforces my absolute fear in the idea of facehuggers. Check it all out below.

Ridley Scott Alien Covenant panel at SXSW 2017

It seems that despite the mixed review that 2012’s Prometheus endured, nearly everyone who is a fan of Ridley Scott‘s 1979 sci-fi horror masterpiece Alien is cautiously excited about his new film Alien: Covenant. There were glimmers of hope in the eyes of all who attended the short panel the acclaimed director participated in today at this year’s SXSW — hope that even though the film is the umpteenth installment of the series, that it’ll be worth the ticket price when it comes out in theaters later this year.
