We think Scott's being too modest with the above comment, which introduced the 'first view' of 15 minutes of this at recent SXSW Festival.  But even if that were what drives this splendiferous sci fi cycle, it would be enough!  Says Variety:  "Judging from the Austin crowd, Alien Covenant is now poised to be one of the biggest hits of the summer. The reaction among the fanboys (and girls) was uniformly enthusiastic, with screams and hoots erupting in the theater."

Following on from the rather portentous Prometheus, this ratchets the pace up a gear or three!  A spaceship full of couples is dispatched to colonise a far-off  planet.  When the pioneers start to explore their new Paradise they find perplexing signs that they might not be the first visitors.   Before long, they are under attack...  Michael Fassbender returns after Prometheus as a next-generation cyborg, and the humans in the cast include Noomi Rapace, Billy Crudup and a perrenial  favourite of ours, Guy Pearce.  

Suffice it to say, they're still asking:  "How do we kill it, Ash?"  Buckle up, it's going to be a bumpy ride.  We promise!
