Picking up 10 years after the Prometheus movie, Alien: Covenant centers on a brand new spaceship called, wait for it, the “Covenant.” It's carrying 2000 colonists and a few pretty cute explorer couples as they set off to find a new planet to chill out on, and make babies.
BUT THEN, “something” happens and they decide to go off course to check out this fully sick planet that looks and feels like Earth...hmmm #dontgothere!
As you might have predicted, there are aliens there. Surprise!
From that point on, the humans need to outsmart these blood thirsty creatures to get off the planet before they go on a munching spree.
Fassbender (you know...Magneto, Assassin's Creed, Steve Jobs) well, he is in it like twice. Meaning he plays two android characters and - SPOILER ALERT - he gets to kiss himself.
So anyway, I heard a scream so loud in the cinema I thought an Alien had lept out of the screen and eaten someone. Now, I’m not a huge fan of horror but there was a decent mix of plot, suspense, and scares to keep you spasming through an emotional rollercoaster of a film.
Make sure whoever you bring will be happy to see you squeal like your voice hasn't broken yet, because ALIEN: COVENANT WILL BITE YOUR FACE OFF.
