Ridley Scott‘s first movie in a lengthy-for-him year-and-a-half is Alien: Covenant, which follows up Prometheus with a little more of that useful brand recognition — hopefully marking a more terrifying return to the style of his 1979 original. If this newest trailer portends what’s to come — notably the appearance of a horrifying, familiar “face” — things are going to get quite bloody.

Featuring the return of Michael Fassbender (now as two androids), Noomi Rapace and Guy Pearce, as well as franchise newcomers Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Billy Crudup, Amy Seimetz, and, sure, James Franco, check out the preview below:

Update: See the red band version below.

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with ALIEN: COVENANT, a new chapter in his groundbreaking ALIEN franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.


Alien: Covenant opens on May 19, 2017.
