An alien invasion is looming over the human race, but the alien in this first trailer of “Alien: Resurrected” suggests it is far from over.
“The most horrifying thing is we’ve created a machine,” the film’s narrator says.
“And we’ve built a machine that can destroy all life on Earth.”
It is a sentiment echoed by many of the characters in the film, but not by the man in the white hooded cloak.
“It’s a machine made to kill you,” says David, a computer programmer who is also an alien hunter.
“I’m not killing you,” replies another alien hunter, played by Mark Ruffalo.
“But we’ve killed you all.”
And the film has been made in secret, meaning the audience cannot see it in full until it is released in December.
“We’re not trying to do anything to get people to see this movie, because it’s a very important film,” says producer David Leitch.
“When we first pitched the film to the studio, we didn’t have a lot of money, we were in the dark.
But we got funding from an anonymous donor and they said ‘Let’s make this a movie.’
We’re very proud of it, it’s very intelligent, very well made, and I’m very proud to be involved in it.”
It’s not clear what the movie will be about.
It has been reported that the film is an allegory for the alien invasion of the 1970s, but Leitch has previously said that his film will “bring the alien threat back to our doorstep.”
Alien: Resurrection is being directed by Matt Reeves, who also wrote and directed “X-Men: First Class,” “Fantastic Four,” “Spartacus” and “The Last Samurai.”
He will produce.
The film has already earned critical praise and earned critical and commercial success.
The Alien franchise grossed more than $1 billion worldwide and was nominated for seven Oscars.
