Here's the first Alien: Covenant trailer because facehuggers hate Christmas

Nothing says Christmas like an unidentified alien life form ripping its way out of your body. Probably. On some planets. Anyway, for reasons known only to the executives at Fox, someone decided Christmas Day was a perfect time to release the first trailer for Alien: Covenant. 

It seems to be channeling more of an original movie vibe with the sets and set up, so let's see how that works out after Prometheus. Both Michael Fassbender and Danny McBride said Alien: Covenant is a much scarier film this time. 

This trailer, along with what looks like some far more familiar aliens, seems to be living up to that promise of more fear. Fingers crossed, then.
