Watch The Scary New Alien: Covenant TV Spots

Plus, Fox confirms that Alien Day is returning for 2017.


Ahead of the movie's release next month, Fox has now published three new TV spots for the sci-fi film. The videos have ominous-sounding titles--"Run," "Pray," and "Hide"--and they deliver the chills.

Part of what makes them scary is not knowing what's coming, so that's all we'll say. All three videos are embedded below; they're pretty short, so it won't take very long to see them all.

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

Scott is already planning the next Alien movie, Alien: Awakening. "You've got to assume, to a certain extent, success [for Alien: Covenant], and from that you'd better be ready," he said. "You don't want a two-year gap. So I'll be ready to go again next year."

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

In other news, Fox has teased this year's Alien Day, which will be held on April 26 (a reference to the planet LV-426 in the sci-fi universe). According to CBR, Fox's celebration plans include a livestream event featuring a Q&A with the Covenant cast and the reveal of some behind-the-scenes footage.
