New ‘Alien: Covenant’ Poster Is All About the Xenomorphs (Photo)

It’s clear humans aren’t welcome

20th Century Fox has released yet another terrifying poster for Ridley Scott’s “Alien: Covenant,” this time showing Xenomorphs tangled up with what look like humans.

In the new charcoal grey poster, scary-looking Xenomorphs are suffocating bald men — a subtle hint that humans aren’t welcome.

The studio released an equally terrifying poster last month, in which the word “Hide” was visible above an egg that looked very similar to the one used in the poster for Ridley Scott’s 1979 classic. Only this time, the egg looked darker and a lot more eerie.

Scott’s new movie has crew members of the colony ship Covenant bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy. Soon they discover 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.

“Alien: Covenant” is intended to be the start of a new trilogy of “Alien” films built on the events of “Prometheus.” Fassbender returns as David (with a dual role as a newer model named Walter) alongside Noomi Rapace, who played “Prometheus” protagonist Elizabeth Shaw.

Danny McBride, Katherine Waterston, James Franco, Demian Bichir, Billy Crudup, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England and Benjamin Rigby round out the cast.

Jack Paglen and Michael Green wrote the script.

“Alien: Covenant” is set to hit theaters May 19, 2017
