Alien: Covenant est un film de science-fiction horrifique américano-britannique réalisé et co-produit par Ridley Scott, sorti en 2017.

Il s'agit du sixième film de l'univers d'Alien et du troisième réalisé par Ridley Scott. Il s'agit d'une suite directe à Prometheus (2012), ainsi que d'une préquelle du film Alien (1979). Le film met en vedette Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride et Demián Bichir dans les rôles principaux. L'action se déroule au début du XXII siècle, dix ans après la disparition du Prometheus.

Alien: Covenant marque le retour du xénomorphe au cinéma qui avait effectué sa dernière apparition en 2008 dans Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem. Le film raconte les origines du xénomorphe tout en introduisant une nouvelle espèce extraterrestre, le néomorphe.

Alien: Covenant a reçu un accueil positif de la part des critiques presse mais a été décrié par les fans de la saga, qui réitèrent au film les mêmes reproches qu'à Prometheus (notamment une intrigue peu convaincante).

Au box-office mondial, le film a rapporté environ 240 millions de dollars de recettes, ce qui lui permet de se classer à la deuxième place des meilleures recettes de la saga Alien (derrière Prometheus qui avait rapporté 403 millions de dollars).

Synopsis

Durant la préparation de la mission Prometheus, Peter Weyland ordonne à un androïde de prendre part à la mission. Weyland se présente comme le « créateur » de l'être synthétique et lui explique que cette mission a pour but de connaitre les créateurs des humains. Weyland demande ensuite à l’androïde de se choisir lui-même un prénom. Après avoir contemplé la célébrissime statue de Michel-Ange, il choisit alors « David ».

"Once, long ago", the ancient Lord of Darkness (Tim Curry) laments his isolation in the shadows before sensing the presence of two unicorns who safeguard the Power of Light; where upon Darkness instructs Blix (Alice Playten) and his fellow goblins to kill the unicorns and bring him their horns to free himself. Meanwhile, Princess Lily (Mia Sara) goes alone to the forest to meet her friend Jack (Tom Cruise), a forest dweller who teaches her the languages of animals before showing her the unicorns. Against Jack's pleas, Lili approaches the stallion before the unicorn is hit by a poisoned dart from Blix's blowpipe. The unicorns bolt, and Lily makes light of Jack's fears and sets him a challenge by throwing her ring into a pond, declaring that she will marry whoever finds it, and Jack at once dives into the pond. As the stallion dies from the poison with the goblins taking his horn, the forest and the pond freeze, with Lily running off in terror before Jack can break free. Taking refuge in a frozen cottage, Lily overhears the goblins ordered to hunt down the mare.
