Two new official Alien: Romulus movie stills have been revealed as part of Entertainment Weekly's summer preview! The spread also features an interview with director Fede Alvarez, where he touches on the significance of the film utilizing a younger cast and how the film's title contains clues to the film's plot. Read on for excerpts!

“My first instinct, just to try something different that hasn't been seen before, was to approach it from the angle of characters who are not professionals or scientists; they're not even adults,” Alvarez says. “I liked this concept of putting people in the front seat of the story who are closer to what the audience is — not that the audience is young, more that the audience is completely virgin to the realities of space. When the characters are professionals, they know more than you do. But when they’re still in their early 20s, they don’t know how to operate the f---ing airlock.” 

Therefore, the dynamic between these young characters is not that of co-workers, comrades, or cellmates so much as… well, siblings. Alvarez hints that that relationship is what the new film’s title refers to, with its invocation of the two mythical brothers who supposedly founded Rome. 

“All their parents probably worked on the same ship when they were kids, and that’s how they got to know each other,” Alvarez says. “There’s a lot of history between them because they're the only family they have. They truly act more like surrogate siblings; some of them even lived under the same roof. A lot of the big themes of the movie are about siblinghood and what does that mean? The Romulus of it all, and the bigger plot with Weyland-Yutani, is actually connected to that as well.”

That practical Xenomorph looks amazing.

It looks like this film will have many visual callbacks to the first two films.
