When Sir Ridley Scott returned to the Alien franchise, it was cause for celebration among fans. Unfortunately, his prequels were light on action and horror and heavy on deep sci-fi themes...which didn't resonate in quite the way the filmmaker hoped. 

Disney's acquisition of 20th Century Fox saw them gain the rights to the property and we're now getting a new TV series from Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley and a movie, Alien: Romulus, helmed by Evil Dead filmmaker Fede Alvarez.

Today, we have a new look at Alien: Romulus courtesy of an upcoming magazine cover. 

The Xenomorphs are back and arguably more terrifying than they have been in a very long time; for those of you wondering, that's Cailee Spaeny's character Rain staring the alien down. 

"She’s an amazing talent," Alvarez recently said of the actress. "I met her a few years before, and it was a complete coincidence in a way. It’s a credit to her talent, but when we started writing the movie a few years ago, my co-writer [Rodo Sayagues] and I already had her photo on the board."

"We put photos of faces on the board just to have a character face that we could turn to when they’re going to say a line. 'How would that person speak?' So we had her face on the board from the beginning, and I always tell Cailee, 'I wrote this movie for you.'"

So I met her and I’d seen her work, and then when this came about, I was lucky enough that she loved the script from the get-go," he concluded.

Check out this new look at Alien: Romulus below. 

The sci-fi/horror-thriller takes the phenomenally successful Alien franchise back to its roots: While scavenging the deep ends of a derelict space station, a group of young space colonizers come face to face with the most terrifying life form in the universe.

The film stars Cailee Spaeny (Priscilla), David Jonsson (Agatha Christie’s Murder is Easy), Archie Renaux (Shadow and Bone), Isabela Merced (The Last of Us), Spike Fearn (Aftersun), Aileen Wu. Fede Alvarez (Evil Dead) directs from a screenplay he wrote with frequent collaborator Rodo Sayagues (Don’t Breathe 2) based on characters created by Dan O’Bannon and Ronald Shusett.

Alien: Romulus is produced by Ridley Scott (Napoleon), who directed the original Alien and produced and directed the series’ entries Prometheus and Alien: Covenant, Michael Pruss (Boston Strangler), and Walter Hill (Alien), with Fede Alvarez, Elizabeth Cantillon (Charlie’s Angels), Brent O’Connor (Bullet Train), and Tom Moran (Unstoppable) serving as executive producers. 

The movie is set to arrive in theaters on August 16.
