The film's release has also been moved up three months and will now open on May 18, 2017, shifting from its previously announced Aug. 4, 2017 date. Covenant is from Alien director Ridley Scott, and will feature Noomi Rapace, reprising her role as Dr. Elizabeth Shaw from the 2012 prequel Prometheus. Rapace will be joined by franchise newcomers Billy Crudup, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride and Carmen Ejogo. Prometheus star Michael Fassbender is returning as the android David in the 20th Century Fox film.
An official synopsis released last November described the film as a second chapter in an Alien prequel trilogy, with the colony ship Covenant discovering a paradise world on the far side of the Ggalaxy, only to learn it's actually a dangerous world whose only inhabitant is the synthetic David.
Acclaimed filmmaker Guy Ritchie brings his dynamic style to the epic fantasy action adventure "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword." Starring Charlie Hunnam in the title role, the film is an iconoclastic take on the classic Excalibur myth, tracing Arthur's journey from the streets to the throne. When the child Arthur's father is murdered, Vortigern (Jude Law), Arthur's uncle, seizes the crown. Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, his life is turned upside down and he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy...whether he likes it or not.
