In Russia... No One Can Hear You Pay Homage to a Sci-Fi classic! Enter Sputnik - a new Russian science fiction horror / thriller which seems to draw tremendous inspiration from Ridley Scott's iconic Alien and John Carpenter's The Thing! The trailer for this exciting new foreign title just dropped online (you can watch it below) and like the Alien: Covenant trailers, it teases massive horror, lots of blood, gore and even gives us a glimpse at the movie's horrific alien creature!
From what we can see, the alien seems to burst from within its host much like the Xenomorph Chestburster. The alien's adult form also features a somewhat white and grey-ish, smooth, skeletal exterior much like the Neomorphs from Alien: Covenant.
The plot involves the discovery of a hostile alien organism aboard the Russian space craft Orbit-4. Days before the craft lands, Russian intelligence lose communication with the astronaut crew following an incident in space. However, some of the crew are found to be alive and are then taken in for questioning once recovered. During their quarantine it becomes evident they've been infected by some horrible alien parasite. It is insinuated that the Russian government are attempting to cover up the ordeal and contain the Alien discovery (much like the Weyland-Yutani corporation did with the Xenomorph) but as one can expect, things go horribly wrong and the alien(s) get loose and cause all kinds of havoc.

The future of Alien
The Alien franchise is taking a dramatic turn at 20th Century Studios, now owned by Disney. Currently there are two major Alien projects in development - a new Alien TV series by Noah Hawley and a new, stand-alone Alien movie being directed by Fede Alvarez. Both of which will be taking the franchise in a new direction - moving away from the Alien prequel direction Ridley Scott set out to pursue back in 2012.
