ALIEN: ROMULUS Poster Unleashes A Terrifying Facehugger Ahead Of Tomorrow's Trailer Launch

20th Century Studios has released a new teaser poster for Alien: Romulus and, ahead of tomorrow's trailer debut, we see the return of the Facehuggers on what proves to be a terrifying piece of imagery.

The first full-length trailer for for Alien: Romulus will be released tomorrow and to build excitement for that, we have a nightmare-inducting poster putting a Facehugger (and its victim) front and centre. 

It's a horrifying piece of imagery and one which suggests horror director Fede Álvarez intends to embrace the sci-fi franchise's horror roots. However, as much as he's been inspired by Alien, the filmmaker is also taking his cues from Aliens

"To ask an Alien fan to choose between them is a perverse question," he recently told Empire Online (via "So I thought, 'How do I do both?'" 

"There’s a moment where the characters are walking around areas familiar from the Nostromo," says Álvarez. "Then they cross through that building and on the other side: boom! You’re in a hallway that looks like Hadley’s Hope [from Aliens]."

Back in April, it was confirmed that Alien: Romulus will boast an R-Rating. That's the same rating as every other instalment in the long-running sci-fi/horror franchise...well, aside from one poorly received effort. 

2013's Alien vs. Predator was rated PG-13, though its sequel, Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem, ultimately went down the R-Rated route (and it still sucked despite the potential that "vs." premise has). 

Given Alvarez's aforementioned history with horror - including Evil Dead and Don't Breathe - it makes sense that he likely has a terrifying gore-fest in store for us.

The sci-fi/horror-thriller takes the phenomenally successful Alien franchise back to its roots: While scavenging the deep ends of a derelict space station, a group of young space colonizers come face to face with the most terrifying life form in the universe.

The film stars Cailee Spaeny (Priscilla), David Jonsson (Agatha Christie’s Murder is Easy), Archie Renaux (Shadow and Bone), Isabela Merced (The Last of Us), Spike Fearn (Aftersun), Aileen Wu. Fede Alvarez (Evil Dead) directs from a screenplay he wrote with frequent collaborator Rodo Sayagues (Don’t Breathe 2) based on characters created by Dan O’Bannon and Ronald Shusett.

Alien: Romulus is produced by Ridley Scott (Napoleon), who directed the original Alien and produced and directed the series’ entries Prometheus and Alien: Covenant, Michael Pruss (Boston Strangler), and Walter Hill (Alien), with Fede Alvarez, Elizabeth Cantillon (Charlie’s Angels), Brent O’Connor (Bullet Train), and Tom Moran (Unstoppable) serving as executive producers. 

The movie is set to arrive in theaters on August 16. Take a closer look at this haunting new poster below.

Where's the suspense?
SuperiorHeckler - 6/3/2024, 5:10 PM
@IAmAHoot - After 8 films just what exactly can Álvarez hide from the fans at this point? Eggs, face-huggers and Xenos and humans running in tight corridors. We ALL know what's in the box. We just don't know how exactly it will be presented to us. 😉
IAmAHoot - 6/3/2024, 5:15 PM
@SuperiorHeckler - I've seen posters, photos, a trailer. All presented; no suspense.

@IAmAHoot - No horror or suspense here. This movie is for those who will say

@IAmAHoot - It looks like an Alien attacking a defenseless human, and also like a poster for modern journalism.

Damn good poster

@DrReedRichards - the Deep would love facehuggers

@DrReedRichards - That reminds me that I'm overdue for a good 'ol fashioned facehugging. Hold on, I'll be right back (grabs ranch dressing and bacon bits)...

@DrReedRichards - 🤣😅😂🤣🤣🤣😂

[frick] me...I thought I was the demented one.

@StSteven - My girl loves...face hugging. I watched Bridgerton with her and understood why. Happy thighs lead to pies apparently.
StSteven - 6/4/2024, 11:32 AM
@The1st - Fried chicken and cobbler? Oh, wait...
supermanrex - 6/3/2024, 4:42 PM
im hoping its good. i need to catch up on the last couple
SuperiorHeckler - 6/3/2024, 5:05 PM
@supermanrex - You referring to PROMETHEUS and COVENANT? No. You seriously don't need to do that and I personally don't recommend it either. And since ROMULUS takes place between ALIEN and ALIENS, I would re-visit those two first and then strap yourself in for what Fede Álvarez has in store for us all. 🤓

OMG! There's an alien thing that hugs your face? What happens next? This is totally unforeseen and unpredictable.
HashTagSwagg - 6/3/2024, 5:17 PM
@Batmangina - If that's the same chick from the trailer it looks like it gets pulled off her, I guess the mystery then is will they go with the original idea where it takes time to get the chestburster in there or will they go with the Covenant bullshit where it takes mere seconds to get that shit down there.
Batmangina - 6/3/2024, 5:30 PM
@HashTagSwagg - I don't remember anything past Alien 3 - they all run together.

It's either:

1.First Movie
2.Game Over, Man!
3.Prison Dudes Movie
4.MEH times infinity
HashTagSwagg - 6/3/2024, 7:17 PM
@Batmangina - I don't blame you, though the first AVP is still a guilty pleasure, that plus the first 3 are really the only that I find rewatchable.
Batmangina - 6/3/2024, 8:32 PM
@HashTagSwagg - Perhaps I will revisit the AVP franchise - I haven't watched that since Netflix sent me the DVD lol
ObserverIO - 6/4/2024, 5:00 AM
@HashTagSwagg - Everything Paul W.S. Anderson makes is a guilty pleasure.
HashTagSwagg - 6/4/2024, 8:33 AM
@ObserverIO - Hell yes, I've even come round liking that dog sh1t editor who made Resident evil: The final The Chapter. Saw Paul's monster Hunter movie last year and I noticed the same dog sh1t editing and was very pleased to later find out that it was edited by the same fella.

This series is like the Terminator series. Their only good films are the first two and they’ve both king outstayed their welcome.
narrow290 - 6/3/2024, 5:30 PM
I would love to "gift" one to my X
bobevanz - 6/3/2024, 5:32 PM
Great poster, I'm very excited for this. There's just one thing: KEEP IT IN THE THEATER FOR AT LEAST TWO MONTHS
DocSpock - 6/3/2024, 5:37 PM

These facehuggers like me, they really like me.

OriginalGusto1 - 6/3/2024, 8:34 PM
@DocSpock - Calm down Ms. Minnelli
LSHF - 6/4/2024, 12:57 AM
@DocSpock - LOL!

Yes, they'd really like to face-[frick] you.
DocSpock - 6/4/2024, 9:21 AM

I'm pretty sure this is tied into this rainbow thing somehow.
AnthonyVonGeek - 6/3/2024, 5:40 PM
I haven’t been this excited for anything “Aliens” in a long time. Can’t wait!
CrazyJ - 6/3/2024, 6:05 PM
Ah neat poster, without being picky I hope they pull off other potential posters, the original poster of Alien with the egg was simply yet perfect, AleinS with Ripley holding Newt is terrific and even Alien³ with the Queen ChestBurster is simple yet effective. There's maintaining the overall impression of Alien but they don't want to constantly recycle the franchises Cliches. I wonder what other creative possible poster concepts they'll come up with later.
