Experience it all – visual and auditory as the “Alien: Covenant” Utero brings you a womb-like environment created with extreme level of detail and realism.
“Alien: Covenant” is set ten years after the events depicted in Ridley Scott’s 2012 hit “Prometheus.” Now, “Alien: Covenant” returns to the roots of the director’s groundbreaking saga with a uniquely terrifying tale filled with white-knuckle adventure and monstrous new creatures. With this, the sixth installment in the blockbuster series, the visionary director edges ever closer toward revealing the mysterious origins of the mother of all aliens, the lethal Xenomorph from the original film.
