Alien Covenant had its premiere in London’s Leicester Square last night and despite some technical difficulties with the live stream, we managed to see some of the stars hit the green carpet. In attendance was Ridley Scott joined by many Alien Covenant actors including Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterstone, Billy Crudip and Danny McBride.

Here’s a select few tweets from fans and journalists who were lucky enough to see Alien Covenant last night. From what I’m hearing the vibes are generally quite positive; people are finding it scarier than Prometheus; the cast and characters are good but the film isn’t without its problems. Particularly regarding the Alien mythos and what was already established in Alien and Aliens.
