Alien: Covenant (second trailer)
These films are my favorite. No question. So much so that when I saw the first Red Band trailer released for this prequel back in December, I actually cried. I really did.

But this NEW trailer that streamed a couple of hours ago….I’ll get to that in a minute

It seems these days that Hollywood is running out of ideas, so they have to bring the old stuff back and “update” it. Power Rangers. Godzilla. Jurassic World. The recent Pokémon Go craze (yeah, not Hollywood, but nostalgic as hell). Star Wars. Star Trek. Every superhero movie. I could go on.

Though I think that the big Wig Hollywood types are simply paying and pushing for creators to put a new spin on old ideas that we loved in our childhood, and that it’s just all about money and commercialism, I just can’t help but get excited every time one of them is released into theaters. I feel like a kid again. 

But Alien? 
That’s a different beast entirely. 

Prometheus was great, but it’s major flaw (other than the mis-mashed ideas and not enough development) was that it was an Alien prequel without the titular xenomorph, the species known as Internecivus raptus. Anchorpoint Essays (Probably my favorite web site of all time…everything you wanna know about xenomorph biology)

Covenant, however, seems to have fixed that problem. And the new trailer is glorious proof.

The damn movie is intense, well directed, full of suspense…and yes, I’m talking about a movie before I’ve even seen it, and trailers can show you the best parts of a film that eventually lets you down…but that won’t be the case with Covenant. Trust me. 

Just look at that godamned xenomorph.
