Christmas Day is the perfect time to release the new Alien: Covenant trailer

The new, creepy, red band trailer for Alien: Covenant is here featuring plenty of Xenomorph based scares. Right now it looks like good old-fashioned Alien fun with all the trademarks - the egg, hints of a pretty graphic 'chest burster' and lots of shocks.

Part Alien prequel, part Prometheus sequel - it looks set to keep fans of both happy. Check out the trailer above.

Alien: Covenant is directed by Ridley Scott and stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterson and Noomi Rapace. It arrives in cinemas in May 2017.
