Following the absolute nightmare that was the Alien prequel, Prometheus, Director Ridley Scott once again takes the reigns of his flagship franchise. Feeling like a “I’m sorry” note for fans who had such high hopes for the mentioned prequel, Covenant refreshingly steps away from the vagueness of its predecessor and delivers some real answers plaguing the Alien story for years.
