The poster for Alien: Covenant has been released by 20th Century Fox. It was posted via the studio’s official Twitter account. The image is simple, striking and frightening, with a one-word tagline of “Run”. In other words, it’s perfect for the iconography of the series. You can view the poster below.

Surprisingly the poster and Tweet also gives a release date of May 19, 2017. This is a full three months sooner than its original planned spot for late summer in August of that year.
Directed by Ridley Scott and written by Michael Green, John Logan and Jack Paglen, Alien:Covenant is the film that will bridge 2012’s Prometheus to the rest of the Alien franchise. Michael Fassbender is returning as the android David, alongside Katherine Waterson, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Noomi Rapace, and Guy Pearce. The film is now set to be released on May 19, 2017.
