The Alien series represents sci-fi horror like no other, and the first parts in particular have made film history. But unfortunately there hasn’t been a sequel since Alien: Covenant. That’s not because the film is bad, it’s much better than its reputation and is on TV today.
That’s what Alien: Covenant is all about
Actually, they want to Crew members of the spaceship Covenant found a colony. They are supposed to ensure the continued existence of humanity and have found a suitable planet that looks like an untouched paradise and the perfect place for the project. Unfortunately, someone was already there before the crew.

Besides, it’s coming Alien: Romulus. This is a new film by Fede Alvarez with Cailee Spaeny and Isabela Merced, which should have nothing to do with the last two Alien parts Prometheus and Covenant.
