Get to the choppa!
20th Century Fox revealed the release dates for its upcoming sci-fi monster films. Alien: Covenant will be released August 4th of 2017, while The Predator hits theaters March 2nd of 2018.
Alien: Covenant will occur ten years after Prometheus. Crew members of the ship, Covenant, will accidentally stumble on a ‘paradise’ planet while searching for a distant planet. The ‘paradise’ planet is run by David (Michael Fassbender), the sole survivor of the original Prometheus expedition. Director Ridley Scott has added a fantastic ensemble cast. Noomi Rapace has been replaced by Katherine Waterson, and Danny McBride, Damien Birchir, and Billy Crudup are all in the film.
There is less information about The Predator. Other than a vague quote from producer that it will ‘reinvent the franchise’ and a poster, not much else is known. Although, based on the poster, the Predator will wear his signature armor once again.
