This New Alien: Covenant TV Trailer Uses A Famous John Denver Song To Great Effect

Is this the first movie trailer to use a John Denver song and feature aliens?


After releasing three new TV spots for Alien: Covenant earlier this week, Fox has now put out yet another short video for the movie that is both unsettling and impressive.

Titled "Take Me Home," the video uses the famous John Denver song, "Take Me Home, Country Roads." The peaceful-sounding song's juxtaposition with the terrifying events happening on screen is a nice touch. Take a look:

Directed by Ridley Scott, Alien: Covenant stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, James Franco, Danny McBride, and Demian Bichir. An intense full trailer was released in February, which followed this special prologue. There was also another creepy new poster for the movie.

Covenant may not be the last Alien movie from Scott, as he confirmed earlier this year that he's already planning the next Alien movie, Alien: Awakening.

Alien: Covenant arrives in theaters on May 19 in the US.
