Alien: Covenant 15

BUY TICKETS 8pm Friday 23 June

DIRECTOR Ridley Scott
CAST Michael Fassbender, James Franco, Katherine Waterston, Noomi Rapace

Ridley Scott’s latest Alien film follows the crew of a colony ship which discovers a mysterious world and its strange ‘synthetic’ inhabitant (played by Michael Fassbender).

This eagerly-awaited sequel to Prometheus links the story to the original Alien film. The crew of the colony ship Covenant discover an uncharted paradise, inhabited by the ‘synthetic’ David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition. The mysterious world soon turns dark and dangerous when a hostile alien life form forces the crew into a deadly fight for survival. Terrifying creatures, some very scary moments and a feisty heroine: Alien fans won’t be disappointed.
(2017 USA / UK 122 mins)

Just as in Prometheus, the action is opened out from the claustrophobic confines of the spaceship to the vast prospects of a distant planet, which turns out to be a mix of Pompeii and Easter Island. There is a wonderful long shot of the explorers in the darkness of this planet, the tiny green beams of their torches darting around them … the film is very capably made, with forceful, potent performances from Waterston and Fassbender. That franchise title is, however, looking increasingly wrong. It is a bit familiar.  Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
