It's Coming...Ridley Scott's ALIEN: COVENANT, Gets a Title Treatment

Prepare for two years of sneak previews, video clips and promo images from Ridley Scott's much talked about second installment of his prequel trilogy, ALIEN COVENANT. I just hope that by the time it arrives on October 6, 2017, we haven't seen all the great parts of the film already. 

But really, can we talk about how Prometheus, the 2012 predecessor didn't need a sequel? I didn't realize Scott had planned to do this as a trilogy, but the more I think about it the more unnecessary it needs. Why a prequel trilogy? Isn't a prequel just supposed to be one film? I mean, I liked Prometheus (and I realize I am in the minority there), but this just seems like a vanity project at this point. 

Don't get me wrong, though: I'll still watch it. :)

Check out the synopsis:

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS -- and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world -- whose sole inhabitant is the "synthetic" David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

At least Fassbender will be in it, and the effects I'm sure will be great. Thoughts?

Do we need it? Absolutely not. Will I watch it? You bet.
