Merry Christmas, folks. Today's a day of joy and festivities but, if you thought it couldn't get any better, you thought wrong, because Fox have just given us the best present we could possibly ask for on this Christmas Day: the teaser trailer for next Summer's Alien prequel, Alien: Covenant.

Ridley Scott returns to the helm, for the follow-up sequel to his Aliens prequel that he released back in 2013, Prometheus. We've known and seen very little from this film... until now. 20th Century Fox have officially debuted the teaser trailer for the highly anticipated Covenant, so check it out below:

I personally am a big fan of Scott's Aliens franchise, and I really liked Prometheus too when it first released in 2013 - despite being quite divisive. Covenant will be the second in that prequel trilogy and I've been anticipating this film for some time now. I was already looking forward to this film but am even more excited than ever before now! The teaser is incredible; it gives us everything we'd want from an Aliens film - blood, violence and horror - and gets us excited for this film, whilst not really giving anything away.

Here's the film's official synopsis:

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
With Ridley Scott at the helm, and starring Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Guy Pearce, Noomi Rapace, and James Franco, Alien: Covenant is unleashed in the UK on May 19th, 2017.

And here's the eerie teaser poster too:
