    That trailer shows lots of overlap with the original. I wonder if their goal is to remake it for modern audiences.

      Interesting but the original really holds up well.

      The trailer shows…too much?

      I’d love to see a different, well done movie featuring and alien instead of a rehash with better sfx.

      Like, could you imagine a war so bad that a species created these to fight thier enemies, and humans kind of happen to stumble into the middle of it?

      Prey did a great job with the Predator series, but there is so much trash between the original and that, much like the Alien series.

        It makes me wonder if Ridley Scott wouldn’t allow them to mess with his story, so they couldn’t “redo” anything from Prometheus or Covenant.

        The trailer always shows too much.
        Sole reason I will skip trailer videos.
        And for trailer compilations I will skip through the announced titles to see what sounds interesting.

    I fail to see how this is new or interesting in any way. Looks like every other Alien movie. Really, Aliens was the best, but that’s because James Cameron is a prodigy. The sound alone just makes the whole thing.

      I think the idea is that this is the opposite of new, that trailer screams “screw all this weird new stuff, we’re going back to the roots”. As for whether that’s interesting… eh, maybe? I’m not convinced a horror film can work when you already know what the monster looks like and how it works. Aliens is a fantastic sequel precisely because its makers recognized that the alien wouldn’t be scary a second time, so they changed genres and made it an action flick instead. The next logical step would clearly be a slapstick comedy. This doesn’t look like that, but who knows, maybe the trailer is deceptive. ;-)

    I’m so glad they ditch the mediocre discourse on AI, God, and the creation of mankind in favor of balls to the wall horror. We’ll see how it goes!
