Alien: Covenant reveals poster, new release date

It looks like we're getting the Prometheus sequel earlier than we thought! Alien: Covenant was scheduled to open in August of 2017, but now, it looks like we'll be screaming at xenomorphs for Memorial Day.

The Alien Facebook page just released the new poster for the film, which reveals a tagline and a new release date.

Alien: Covenant now opens May 19, as you can see.
