The “Alien: Covenant” red band trailer gives fans an extra look at the blood you would expect in a movie about aliens that burst out of people’s bodies — along with some R-rated language.
The film follows the crew of The Covenant, a long-range space craft that is being used for the first large scale colonization mission in Earth’s history.
The crew arrives on an alien planet, only to discover that they are not the first humans to have set foot here. The end of the trailer also gives us a look at the terrifying Xenomorph we know and love.
Michael Fassbender, who starred as the android David in “Prometheus,” will reprise the role in this new film. He will also play Walter, the android that assists the human crew members aboard the Covenant.
The sci-fi thriller also stars Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England and Benjamin Rigby.
“Alien: Covenant” arrives in theaters May 19.
