“The Path to Paradise Begins in Hell!”
That’s the tag line Alien: Covenant runs in their newest trailer. And it sure is accurate.
The trailer begins introducing us to the basic premise of why all of these humans are on a remote planet and it also gives us a little bit of backstory into the crew. They are all couples part of the first large scale colonization mission.
It’s an almost idyllic trailer until about a third of the way through when it takes a dark turn.
“Do you hear that? What? Nothing. No birds. No animals. Nothing.”
And that’s when we see our first tie-in to Prometheus as an Alien ship is crash landed on this planet.
And all hell breaks loose.

One thing is for sure these pilgrims aren’t being welcomed to their new home.
