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