Thoughts on the new Alien: Covenant trailer

I included this in my look ahead to 2017, most excited films list, (here), and this is the first promotional material aside from posters and set photos we’ve seen so I am super pumped.

How is it? It’s super good, really intense, it looks like Scott’s made this actually into a great horror film, something we’ve been craving from both Scott and the franchise since the original Alien. The best thing? There is recongisable iconography, but the trailer in no way relies on that, and it’s best moments have virtually none of it.
