Alien: Romulus Gets Official Trailer and Facehugger Poster

The first official trailer for Alien: Romulus, the next chapter in the long-running Alien saga, has arrived alongside an awesome new poster featuring the franchise’s iconic Facehugger. The trailer doesn’t show much other than setting the mood with dimly lit corridors, atmospheric tension and suspenseful long shots – basically, it’s going back to the horror-focused style of 1979’s Alien and we couldn’t be happier.

The trailer for Alien: Romulus doesn’t actually offer much in the way of story or characters. There’s a lot of tone-setting which is great for selling fans on the idea that this movie is attempting to go back to the franchise’s roots and deliver a more tense, claustrophobic horror with old-school scares per minute. What makes Romulus unique is the direction from Fede Alvarez, best known for directing 2013’s excellent Evil Dead remake and 2016’s critically acclaimed Don’t Breathe.

Alvarez brings his stylish, energetic direction to the table in Alien: Romulus. If you’ve seen his prior movies, you can be assured that he has a very good grasp on the horror genre – something that the new Alien movie will undoubtedly lean into after Prometheus and Alien: Covenant swayed more into action/sci-fi territory.

20th Century Studios also released a new poster for the movie a day before the trailer arrived, which features a Facehugger wrapping itself around an innocent person. We know where this is going.

As for Alien in the gaming world, a new PS VR2 game called Alien: Rogue Incursion was announced at PlayStation’s State of Play show last week. The game promises to bring the gritty, intense horror of the Alien franchise to virtual reality. Sounds pretty terrifying considering how good 2014’s Alien: Isolation was at setting up scares and tension.

Check out the latest trailer for Alien: Romulus below. The movie hits cinemas on 16 August 2024.
