"The only thing that is safe in this movie is the alien", Crudup said.

Almost 40 years ago, director Ridley Scott made his name with two films that took us to nightmarish possible futures: "Blade Runner" and "Alien".

So anyway, with over two thousand souls on board the Covenant, it is up to the fourteen fearless crew who clearly skipped out on the three day training course that involved contamination and contagion control, to scout a new planet and avoid alien-creatures that don't believe in personal boundaries. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, unsafe world - whose sole inhabitant is the "synthetic" David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

The company reported $0.19 earnings per share for the quarter, topping the Zacks' consensus estimate of $0.15 by $0.04. The firm had revenue of $1.08 billion during the quarter, compared to analyst estimates of $1.08 billion.

There are pacing issues in the film, with yet again, too many ideas trying to be explored in a two hour runtime. "God only knows where we'll be in 20 years time".

Overall, the film is still a disappointment, it is better than Prometheus, but not by much.

The sci-fi horror franchise started back in 1979 with "Alien" which was directed by Scott himself.
