Is 20th Century Fox getting ready to debut the first Alien: Covenant teaser trailer? The official Alien social media channels continue to release cryptic images from the production of Alien: Covenant, building hype and igniting our imaginations. With the select few images they've released so far, our Prometheus movie forums have been lighting up with interesting and engaging fan theories and speculation, like when Prometheus entered production back in 2011.
Today, Fox released a new GIF of what seems to be an airlock door passageway. Like the Nostromo and the Prometheus vessels, these flashing lights usually indicate a system restoration or an alert. In Prometheus, the lights flashing indicated the ship had arrived at its destination. Furthermore The caption read "Systems check".
UPDATE: As we suspected, this GIF was not a coincidence! The official Alien and Prometheus social media channels just uploaded a second GIF, featuring a different backdrop, with a red light flashing. The caption reads "Seal all doors and hatches." Something is coming folks... and it's likely video footage. An Alien: Covenant trailer, or new poster could be inbound sooner than we expected! Watch this space for details!
Could this be a subtle hint that Fox are going through their own "systems check" and perfecting a teaser trailer for Alien: Covenant? With every new image comes new clues and with every new clue comes speculation. This new image is no different. Alternatively it could just be a random GIF made on a whim to keep the Alien social media feed active. But, I'm leaning more towards the former on this one. What do you think?

The state of the Alien: Covenant sequel continues to remain uncertain. Ridley Scott has mentioned previously that they have a story already in place and know exactly where the sequel to Covenant will go, however the recent acquisition of 20th Century Fox film properties by Disney have potentially put the rumored-to-be-titled Alien: Awakening on hold for the time being.

I think it's a bit early for a teaser trailer, isn't it?
When was the first teaser trailer for Prometheus released?
I know I was a member of this forum at the time (when it was dedicated solely to Prometheus and the Alien series,) we were all coming up with crazy, surreal theories but I can't remember when I saw the first teaser.
That right there looks like something from 2001: A Space Odyssey! I love the promotional material so far for Covenant! Very thought provoking and cool looking too without really giving away too much. Ahhh hopefully a teaser is out by this fall at the latest!
It has been the trend of late to release trailers a year early. For example, they released the trailer for Beauty and the Beast and that is slated for next year release. I believe Fox will do the same to build up the momentum for the film.
I'm wondering, could the gif be reversed? As in the lights are switching on like in Alien before the camera enters the hypersleep chamber? Could be covering up a spoiler. I could be wrong but it's the impression I get.
