Alien Covenant: Everything you need to know about Prometheus 2, including release date, cast and spoilers

Prometheus 2 mostly comes out in 2017. Mostly.

 

It’s official. After initially distancing Prometheus from the Alien franchise, Ridley Scott has embraced his prequel and given it a sequel entitled Alien: Covenant which may just bring the gap leading to his original Alien franchise.

Details might be scarce at the moment, but consider this your one-stop shop (which will be updated as new info arrives) for cast, plot rumours and potential spoilers on the new Alien movie.

Alien: Covenant director: Ridley Scott is back in the director’s chair

Despite arriving to a mixed reception from critics in 2012, Prometheus banked a hefty $400 million at the worldwide box office to all but guarantee a sequel.

Scott, who kick-started the Alien franchise way back in 1979, is directing Alien: Covenant following 2015’s The Martian. Prometheus marked Scott’s first sci-fi since 1983’s Blade Runner – now he can’t get enough of the genre.

“I thought I’d left science fiction for too long, that I had better climb back in.Prometheus was a great experience for me,” he told Empire. “Chasing number two, we can start evolving the grand idea.”

Alien: Covenant cast: Michael Fassbender is back, so is Noomi Rapace (probably), and there’s a whole new crew.
