20th Century Fox has released a very, very cool new poster for Alien: Covenant which boasts an image that looks like one of original Alien designer HR Giger’s nightmarish sculptures. But a look a little more closely at the top centre and a very particular shape seems to form part of the background; could that be an alien queen head? Internet punters are very excited by the idea that it could be. Compare and contrast with the screengrab below.
Oh, and 20th Century Fox UK would no doubt love us to point out that this is a US poster and the film is actually out in the UK a week earlier on 12 May. Because we’re nice.
Alien: Covenant stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, Benjamin Rigby and James Franco. It’s directed by Ridley Scott.
