Few people are clamouring for a follow-up to Prometheus. Ridley Scott’s 2012 movie which contained ‘Alien DNA’ was a mess (Read the Movies In Focus review).
I get the feeling he’s trying to make amends with Alien: Covenant – but don’t think this is a movie he wanted to make. It feels like a favour to 20th Century Fox, as a way of getting the franchise back on track. This new poster is stating one thing – this is an Alien prequel.
