Though 2017's Alien: Covenant is technically a sequel to 2012's Prometheus, the first poster doesn't show it. The poster very, very specifically points to the later films in the timeline. The originals that featured a badarse Sigourney Weaver and an unforgettable villain.


I've always wanted to go to Mars. I don't have the brains or the endless cash reserves of Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos, though. What I do have is PlayStation VR.

Video: Alien's xenomorph is just plain cool. But why exactly do we love this grotesque monster so much?

A tale of scientists creating a monster isn't quite a tale as old as time, but it is a familiar one.
