MOVIES | PROMETHEUS 2 TITLE REVEAL ALIEN: COVENANT
Ridley Scott’s Prometheus sequel formerly Alien: Lost Paradise now called Alien: Covenant is official. The origin story of the xenomorph which Prometheus set up, will continue to unravel in Alien: Covenant with Michael Fassbender as android David, and Naomi Rapace as Dr. Shaw returning.
The choice to title Prometheus 2 as an Alien movie seems like a marketing move on Fox’s part. Given the popularity of the Alien franchise, fan base and recognition, along with the polarizing reviews of Prometheus, it makes sense to resurrect the Alien, rather than under the Prometheus banner.
Neill Blomkamp’s, Alien plans are officially shelved.
Alien: Covenant also has an official date 10/6/2017.
