After raking in more than 10 million views on YouTube, the Alien: Covenant trailer is currently the third highest ranked video on the video sharing platform since its December 25th debut. Although many fans applaud the trailer for looking and feeling more like Ridley Scott's original ALIEN, some have voiced opinions that Prometheus had a more intriguing trailer. A couple fans have even taken it upon themselves to re-cut the Alien: Covenant trailer to look and feel like the original Prometheus and ALIEN trailers. Whether you really enjoyed the Alien: Covenant trailer or not, you will most likely agree that the following re-cuts are quite well done.
The first re-cut we have to share was uploaded to YouTube, where the uploader edited the original Covenant trailer to match both the tone and pace of the original Prometheus trailer from back in 2011! Below is the first Prometheus trailer, along with the edited re-cut of the Alien: Covenant trailer.
Another YouTuber, Jose Mellinas also re-cute the Alien: Covenant trailer with the original ALIEN trailer - adding in the chilling Alien siren and removing the original trailer's previous audio. He also shortened the trailer to coincide with the original ALIEN teaser. Check out ALIEN's teaser first and then the re-cut below:
Both are great re-cuts of the already-chilling Alien: Covenant trailer. Although each film, ALIEN, Prometheus and Alien: Covenant have been made in a tonally, different way, it's fun to see how each stack up to one another when compared this way.
Alien: Covenant will aim to blend the claustrophobic horror of ALIEN with the wonderment and mystery of Prometheus, so it makes sens that the trailer would almost come across as the blending of the two itself.
