Katherine Waterston in Alien: Covenant

Yesterday, we got our first look at the complete cast of Shane Black’s The Predator, so it makes perfect sense that today offers up our first look at the complete cast of Ridley Scott‘s Alien: Covenant. After all, these are the definitive science fiction/horror movie series, with the beasties at the center of both franchises even battling it out in the two Alien vs. Predator movies. It’s fun to imagine that rivalry extending beyond the screen – “Well, if they’re going to release a cast picture…”

So here we go: here is our first look at the Alien: Covenant cast gathered in one place.

fate of the furious running time

UPDATE: It seems that The Fate of the Furious has started screening and it’s definitely not 160 minutes long:

The original post follows below.

Part of the charm of the Fast and Furious series has been its willingness to throw caution to the wind and give in to its every indulgence. Once the movies began to leave their humble street racing origins in the dust, they began to fly. Literally. Because they were driving cars off skyscrapers and so on. And it’s starting to sound like the running times may be catching up to the series’ increasingly grandiose scale. If the internet is to be believed (and the internet is never wrong and has never influenced the world in a negative or unfortunate way), The Fate of the Furious is long enough to demand an overture and an intermission.

black panther

The appeal of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been, ever since its earliest days, the promise of watching so many seemingly disparate characters fight and co-exist and come together to save the day in a shared world where the events of one adventure can have a profound effect on one another. And then they pulled if off and we got spoiled and the rest of Marvel Studios’ “Phase 3” has to find a way to get us excited all over again. And you know what? This new video, which teases Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, and Avengers: Infinity War, feels like a healthy injection of fuel into the Marvel hype machine. No one can sell themselves quite like Marvel can.
