Directed by Ridley Scott, filmed in Australia and featuring a stellar international cast – including no less than five Aussies in key roles* – you can say we’re more than a little excited about the release of the latest film in the Alien saga – Alien: Covenant.

For those not familiar with the film yet, here’s a look at the synopsis:

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with ALIEN: COVENANT, a new chapter in his groundbreaking ALIEN franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.
