Alien Romulus Official Teaser Trailer

If you haven’t already heard, there is going to be a new Alien movie. Called Alien: Romulus, it would be the seventh Alien film including Prometheus films, not counting the crossover films. It is not quite a sequel, though. It does not pick up where Alien: Covenant left off, and it is not quite a sequel after the 1997 Alien Resurrection. Instead, it is a standalone interquel set between the events of OG Alien (1979) and the immediate sequel 1986’s Aliens. Here’s the gist of what it is about and who’s in it:

Alien Romulus Official Teaser Trailer

“The sci-fi/horror-thriller 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. The film stars Cailee Spaeny (“Priscilla”), David Jonsson (“Agatha Christie’s Murder is Easy”), Archie Renaux (“Shadow and Bone”), Isabela Merced (“The Last of Us”), Spike Fearn (“Aftersun”), Aileen Wu. Fede Alvarez (“Evil Dead,” “Don’t Breathe”) directs from a screenplay he wrote with frequent collaborator Rodo Sayagues (“Don’t Breathe 2”) based on characters created by Dan O’Bannon and Ronald Shusett. “Alien: Romulus” is produced by Ridley Scott (“Napoleon”), who directed the original “Alien” and produced and directed the series’ entries “Prometheus” and “Alien: Covenant,” Michael Pruss (“Boston Strangler”), and Walter Hill (“Alien”), with Fede Alvarez, Elizabeth Cantillon (“Charlie’s Angels”), Brent O’Connor (“Bullet Train”), and Tom Moran (“Unstoppable”) serving as executive producers.”

The Alien: Romulus is expected to hit the theaters starting on August 16, 2024. Meanwhile, here’s the official teaser trailer which, if I can be honest, does not have a lot going on.
