283: ‘Alien: Covenant’ Starring Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride




It’s finally here, the highly anticipated sequel to the polarizing pre-quel to the beloved sequel – Alien: Covenant.

The guys all tell us where they landed on Prometheus, as we dig into this proper Alien film (the first of three planned before meeting up with 1979’s Alien). Tom looks at the sequel to the prequel as two movies at times, and prefers one over the other. Kevin longs for the days of practical effects, and it’s safe to say that Joe mentions wrestling. Meanwhile Dan has a Video Recovery straight from the salt mines.

It’s Reel Spoilers 283.

You’ve been warned.

Starring: Tom O’Keefe, Kevin Brackett, Dan Graney, Joe Buttice
Run-time: 1hr 24min
