Ridley Scott’s ‘Prometheus’ sequel now called ‘Alien: Covenant’


There is someone out there who is excited for the second Prometheus movie. There is somewhere in me that’s excited for the second Prometheus movie, hoping that no Damon Lindelof will fix the problems with the first movie. Especially since Scott has proven himself still a competent filmmaker, on the back of The Martian. This news is for us!


The sequel to Ridley Scott’s Prometheus finally has a release date.

20th Century Fox confirmed today on Twitter that Alien: Covenant will hit theaters Oct. 6, 2017, one year before Neill Blomkamp’s own Alien installment.

There was originally some concern that Blomkamp’s Alien film would be released the same year as Scott’s and would confuse audiences, but Blompkamp announced on Twitter last month that his film would be put on hold to accommodate Scott’s Prometheus sequel.
