If you liked the first "Alien" film then, I believe, you will enjoy this film. "Both B and I thought this was far better than "Alien Prometheus".
Alien Covenant" is the latest release in the Alien series. It is part two of a four part sequence of prequel films that are building up to the original film "Alien". There is nothing really new here but the craft, the storytelling, the acting are all extremely well done.
