Alien: Covenant is one of the most hotly anticipated films of the next few years. The film has recently wrapped production, however the cast and crew continue to tease the tone of the new film. We know that the film will consist of an entirely new cast, but as of yet the tone has remained somewhat enigmatic. Michael Fassbender teased the tone of the film in an interview with Collider:
“This Alien is going to be… I’m very excited to see it and everybody in the film was saying this is a film that we all want to see. It’s much scarier than Prometheus but it’s got the same sort of scope of Prometheus. It’s kind of got more of the sort of thriller, imminent disaster feel that Alien had, so it’s kind of a beautiful meeting of both of those films. I’m really excited to see it, I think it’s gonna be super scary number one and then again with the massive scope of Prometheus… Once it starts and the ball starts rolling, it doesn’t let up. It’s really gonna bring chills to the cinema
These comments are extremely encouraging, and promise a potentially drastic departure from the previous film. Fassbender’s comments hint at a high level of suspense and intrigue in Alien: Covenant, while keeping the mysterious feel of Prometheus intact.
