Alien: Covenant Release Pulled Forward & Fox Offers First Glimpse Of The Alien

20th Century Fox has announced that the release date for Alien: Covenant has been pulled forward yet again, this time from August 4th to May 19th.

The announcement comes via a teaser poster that has just been released on 20th Century Fox’s various social media platforms. The new teaser posters also offers us our first look at the upcoming film’s Alien: Covenant’s traditional Alien, with a simple tagline of “Run”. We have also confirmed with 20th Century Fox that this is an announcement in change of release date.

Fox announces that Alien: Covenant's release has been pulled forward to May 19th 2017 with a new teaser poster showing the film's Alien! Alien: Covenant Release Pulled Forward & Fox Offers First Glimpse Of The Alien

Fox announces that Alien: Covenant’s release has been pulled forward to May 19th 2017 with a new teaser poster showing the film’s Alien!

As we previously mentioned, 20th Century Fox has been recently testing the film and are currently filming additional footage at Leavesden Studios. This marks the second time Alien: Covenant has had it’s release pulled forward (it was originally announced with a release date of October 2017) and Alien vs. Predator Galaxy has heard that the studio is pleased with how the film is turning out.

This additional change in release potentially shows real confidence on the part of 20th Century Fox as it now puts Sir Ridley Scott’s Prometheus sequel release into close proximately with Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (May 5th). Alien: Covenant’s only similar competition on release date, however, is Annabelle 2.

Keep tuned to Alien vs. Predator Galaxy for the latest on Alien: Covenant! You can follow us on FacebookTwitter and Instagram to get the latest on your social media walls. You can also join in with fellow Alien fans on our forums!

    Trailer imminent?

    We'll know it's imminent when we see a tip-off similar to this in the next few days.

    https://twitter.com/robtrench/status/809152923217330177

    We've heard potentially the 24th for the embargo lifting, and from French media the 26th for the trailer, doesn't that mean there's a possibility the A:C trailer WON'T be with Assassins creed? I would have thought Fox would have been wary about it leaking online if it premieres on the 21st

    Well apparently there's two Alien: Covenant trailers. One of them is for general audiences which I assume would be attached to Assassins Creed (PG) and a red-band trailer. Not sure if they will debut on the same day though. There's still about two working days left to get a certification for attaching a trailer to Assassins Creed.

    Just read a tweet from @trailertrack speculating the trailer could be "theatre exclusive" before Assassins Creed for a few days before going online. Kinda banking on Alien to get a few more bums in seats for Assassins creed.

    It might get more people to see Creed but there will likely be shitty bootleg trailer footage of Covenant popping-up all over the internet.

    I think I've only ever seen a red-band trailer (or whatever we call them in the UK) in a cinema once. I can't even remember what it was for or what I was seeing. Literally the only time I've ever seen a "not for general audiences" trailer outside of YouTube.

    Yeah, I think the red-band trailer will probably debut online only, unless there's a suitable R-Rated film coming out soon to which it can be attached.

    Yeah, those are my thoughts at the minute too. We know there's 2 trailers. We know one is a red-band. I think it's a reasonable expectation that we'll see a tamer, general trailer in front of Assassin's Creed because it's Fox's most appropriately timed film and it stars Fassbender. Why would they not?

    Then we'll get the red band trailer (which I think is what was being shown at these Showcase events, apart from the LA one where they saw both, or at least CdL did) online Christmas Eve/Christmas Day when the embargo ends and the press can talk about all the blood and guts in more detail.

    But I would love some sort of definitive confirmation from Fox.

    Can't wait to see this trailer. This will be my First real alien film I will see at the theatre.

    I did see AVPR and Prometheus but both were let downs lol

    I've watched Alien res, AvP,  AvPr, and Prometheus in theaters and was let down by all. Prometheus  was a better experience than the rest though.

    I really hoping I can walk out of the theater with a smile this time.

    I only caught AvP, AvPR, Predators and Prometheus in the cinema. All 3 times (I know, I know).  :laugh: I've seen the other Alien films in the cinemas since with the various special events and etc but I'm looking forward to seeing a film with just Alien in the title on the big screen for the first time.

    Predators was the only one of those I came out of smiling.

    Bloody hell it's cutting it fine, isn't it? I'm definitely losing my composure, let's hope we see that classification tomorrow to set us up nicely for the weekend!

    Yeah, that's what I mean... They'll be unable to combat that, which begs the question why not just put the pristine quality version up to avoid that.

    I did see AVPR and Prometheus but both were let downs lol

    My first Alien film in cinema was ... Resurrection and maybe for that reason I like it. Sentiments :)

    I was only 15/16 when Res can out. I would have loved to get in to the cinema at the time. Some how I missed AVP. No idea why. I think I was away training.

    I was only 14 when it came out and I didn't have any problems getting into the cinema :) Nobody was asking for ID at that time.

    I'm jealous lol.

    I have been around to catch all of those as well!

    While I really liked Prometheus upon first viewing, I can see why you would say that. Seems like the series is trying, with each iteration, to climb out of the creative hole that started with Alien 3. Prometheus was really the best entry in the franchise since 3, IMO. All of the films you mention are blemishes on the franchise and are bankrupt of any content which elevated the first two films to legendary status. The storyline introduced in Prometheus is an interesting direction to take things in, it being a diversion to the beginning of Alien in a way, and very well may be the intense ride we have been wanting since Aliens.

    I totally respect that. I went with my mom—who introduced us to Alien and Aliens when we were 7/8—and my brother.

    I also remember being kind of happy after Prometheus. I think the combination of wanting to love it, being beautiful to look at and having some good ideas clouded my judgment. After each viewing I found I pulled it to pieces more and more.

    Same.

    Ohh me too dude. Although I don't think I'll get the same feeling of wonder and horror that I felt when I first watched Alien. I was 9 lol. I remember it clearly. Loved it so much.

    If Covenant can give me a tenth of that I'll be happy.
