Sci-Fi Horror is Back in Trailer for Alien: Romulus

Sci-Fi Horror is Back in Trailer for Alien: Romulus

We already saw Cailee Spaeny take on a predator in Priscilla, but now she’s ready to take on Xenomorphs in the next Alien film from director Fede Alvarez. Alien: Romulus is expected to come out this August, and we have our first full trailer.

Check this out:

Here’s the official synopsis:

“Alien: Romulus” takes the phenomenally successful “Alien” franchise back to its roots: While scavenging the deep ends of a derelict space station, a group of young space colonizers come face to face with the most terrifying life form in the universe.

Like the description suggests, this looks like a return to form for the Alien franchise. Though the last few films had focused on soldiers and scientists taking on Xenomorphs, a lot of people who remember the first film know that the original crew was just the sci-fi equivalent of blue collar truckers.

Though it does seem that Romulus is going to be steering away from the storyline established by Prometheus, I hope that we get at least some closure to David’s story from Alien: Covenant. We don’t know what’s happened to David, but it’s possible that this could be his lab, and these unlucky people just so happened to have stumbled into all these Xenomorphs.

I’ll admit, I was ready to see where Ridley Scott wanted to take the franchise with Prometheus, but this stylistic return to the original formula does feel like something I’ve missed as well.

Alien: Romulus comes to cinemas on Aug. 16.
