Another Trailer for Alien: Romulus Is Here to Make Your Ears Ring

Clever, clever, clever. The new trailer for Alien: Romulus simplifies the classic Alien tagline: forget screaming. In space, no one can hear you, full stop.

Well, except that they can, at least while there’s still anyone alive to scream, or hear the screaming. The next trip to Alien space comes courtesy of director Fede Álvarez (Evil Dead), is set between Alien and Aliens, and is full of graphic face-huggers (one might even be tempted to use a different word there) and backlit chestbursters and something in the water. It’s the worst when these bastards are in the water.

There’s no more synopsis or description than there was with the last look at the film: “While scavenging the deep ends of a derelict space station, a group of young space colonizers come face to face with the most terrifying life form in the universe.” (Has scavenging ever gone well for anyone in a science fiction film or television program?)

Romulus, which was co-written by Álvarez and Rodo Sayagues (based on characters created by Dan O’Bannon and Ronald Shusett), has a gaggle of up-and-coming stars, including Cailee Spaeny (Priscilla), Archie Renaux (Shadow and Bone), and Isabela Merced (The Last of Us). Spaeny seems to be the most likely to survive, given the series’ track record, but we’ll have to wait and see what Álvarez has up his sleeve. [ed note: “Romulus” is also the saddest of all the sad Sufjan Stevens songs! Maybe… no one survives?] icon-paragraph-end
