Fede Alvarez's Alien film (tentatively titled Alien: Romulus) finally has an official release date! Thanks to a fresh report by The Hollywood Reporter, we now know Alien: Romulus will debut August 16th, 2024 and as we previously reported, the film will debut in theaters and not only on demand as originally suspected:

20th Century has added another installment in the Alien franchise, dated for Aug. 16, 2024. Filmmaker Fede Alvarez is behind the feature, which stars Cailee Spaeny. The studio has also added the Rami Malek thriller The Amateur to Nov. 8, 2024.

The new Alien film sees some familiar faces returning to help create the nightmarish atmosphere we've come to expect from an Alien flick - Ridley Scott returns to produce and concept artist Dane Hallett will also be lending his talents once again.

Alien: Romulus is also reported to take place between the events of Alien (1979) and its sequel Aliens (1986) and borrows heavily from the game Alien: Isolation.

The official plot synopsis involves "a group of young people on a distant world, who find themselves in a confrontation with the most terrifying life form in the universe".

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.

I need to build up the courage to beat ALIEN ISOLATION. However the xenomorph keeps scaring the crap out of me.

Hopefully we'll get something. I hope that they won't spoil it like they did with Alien Covenant, that was too much and also in too little time.

Luckily I refrained from watching all the trailers to Covenant
