Between the recent releases of the trailer and the four-minute prologue, there's been a considerable amount of flavour for Alien: Covenant being revealed as of late; and it all looks pretty interesting.

Marking what appears to be a return to its roots, Alien: Covenant is set to see the franchise embrace the claustrophobic horror, terrifying creature design and Freudian imagery that made the original film such a classic, while further expanding the scope of the larger Alien mythology fans were treated to in the polarising Prometheus.
