Yesterday on Christmas Day,¬†20th Century Fox dropped the first trailer for the upcoming sequel to Prometheus and prequel to the original¬†Alien. The film looks good but the trailer feels a little too familiar. Like the Assassin’s Creed trailers, this trailer also suffers from poorly chosen, out of place music that takes away from what could have been a terrifying trailer.

Alien: Covenant hits theaters May 19, 2017.

The film stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterson, Noomi Rapace, Danny McBride, Billy Crudup, and Guy Pearce. Written by Michael Green, John Logan, and Jack Palgen. Directed by Ridley Scott.

Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discover what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world, whose sole inhabitant is the synthetic David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
