Alien: Romulus – Trailer Talk

June has, so far, treated movie fans with a lot of great trailers including the highly anticipated new entry in the ‘Alien’ franchise.

Produced by Ridley Scott (Alien, Aliens) and directed by Fede Alvarez (Evil Dead 2013, Don’t Breathe), ‘Alien: Romulus’ follows a group of space colonizers on a space station who have the misfortune of coming face to face with the most terrifying life form in the universe: the Xenomorph.



After ‘Prometheus’ tried to breath new life into the sci-fi franchise, ‘Alien: Romulus’ is going back to its roots by setting it in the claustrophobic corridors and hallways of a space station. And with the setting, combined with the dim lighting and tense moments featured, this might be just as terrifying as the original film.

And not just the imagery, but the editing of the trailer itself is heavily inspired by the original film’s trailer. The sound design is especially fantastic, with it opening with strange cracking sounds that is horrifying revealed to be the opening of a ribcage, thanks to a Facehugger, to it closing with a high-pitched sound that replaces screaming. 

‘Alien: Romulus’ has been anticipated for a long time and it’s already grabbed my attention. The trailer is really simple yet effective: it doesn’t need to tell you the whole story, but instead opts for glimpses of the Xenomorph and the setting. Plus, it wears the influence of its source material proudly on its sleeve, something that is a positive to see.
