I'm a huge sci-fi fan. Ridley Scott's Alien is one of my all-time favourite movies; Alex Garland's Ex Machina, from last year, is one of my favourite sci-fi films in recent years. Now, the two combine in the first trailer and poster for Luke Scott's forthcoming Morgan.

Ridley Scott is one of my all-time favourite directors and, it goes without saying, his Alien franchise is exceptional and an iconic landmark for the sci-fi genre. Whilst the director is hard at work filming Alien: Covenant, his son, Luke Scott, is set to follow in his footsteps and make his feature-length debut with Morgan, a forthcoming sci-fi horror about "a rapidly developing lifeform".

The first trailer for the film has arrived and, if the film is half as good as this, it could be that Luke follows in the footsteps of his father to become a great filmmaker. Watch it below:
So, being a teaser, the trailer doesn't give too much away but it establishes the tone and the science-fiction feel to the film and it is just so great. There are definitely Alien vibes here but I'm also seeing some echoes of last year's brilliant Ex Machina in this too. However, the film also looks like one that will standout for its own merits which is great to see. The trailer is dark and chilling and very promising and I definitely cannot wait to see more from this film! I'm certainly curious to know... what is Morgan? Signe me up.

Here's the film's official synopsis:
A corporate troubleshooter (Kate Mara) is sent to a remote, top-secret location, where she is to investigate and evaluate a terrifying accident. She learns the event was triggered by a seemingly innocent “human,” who presents a mystery of both infinite promise and incalculable danger.
With Luke Scott at the helm, Ridley Scott producing, and starring Kate Mara, Anya Taylor Joy, Rose Leslie, Toby Jones, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Paul Giamatti, Morgan is set to open sometime towards the end of this year: a release date is TBC.
