Buckle up for more body horror in Fede Alvarez's upcoming Alien: Romulus movie! The Alien sequel / Aliens prequel blockbuster will reportedly feature a scene so horrifically disgusting, that cast members watching footage from the film had to look away during the scene, according to Alien: Romulus star Isabela Merced (via THR):

Merced is also starring alongside Cailee Spaeny in Fede Álvarez’s upcoming Alien: Romulus, which takes place between Ridley Scott’s Alien (1979) and James Cameron’s Aliens (1986). During a recent round of reshoots, Merced and some nearby cast/crew got to watch a significant chunk of the film on Álvarez’s iPad, and one scene in particular prompted everyone but Merced to look away in horror.

“There’s a scene that I’m in, and they all had to turn away. Not one person stayed looking at that iPad because it was so disgusting,” Merced reveals. “And I was watching it like this … (Merced pretends to hold an iPad with a mesmerized look on her face.) I was so excited.”

Alien has always been known to deliver some truly gruesome death scenes, some so violent they don't even make it into the final cut of the film (like this extended shower death scene from Alien: Covenant). It's great to know Romulus will carry on that tradition of delivering nightmarish performances which leave us horrified at the thought of ever encountering a hostile Alien organism.

Alien: Romulus is currently undergoing reshoots but is still aiming for a theatrical release date of August 16th, 2024!

This sounds like a PR stunt

I'm okay with any PR stunt....Need to get some interviewers asking question to these actors. Generate 'some' content! We've had nothing.

If they overplay it: The majority are probably going to be disappointed....Reviewers have field days on overhyped movies. "The trailer Showed too MUCH!!","The trailer was better than the movie!!"

If they underplay it: Many won't put it on their summer watch list...or forget about it entirely. 


Luckily, August look pretty tame for big releases. Romulus stands a good chance.

Well I hope Romulus is a good movie, hopefully they don't interject real world politics into the setting because well... Disney
