This Covenant image, like those before it, was posted to Twitter accompanied by a mysterious series of numbers (224612072104) and fans have been actively trying to determine their significance. One theory is that these numbers, in some coded manner, are counting down to the online release of the Alien: Covenant trailer – something that will reportedly happen this weekend, just in time for Christmas. Fox showed the Covenant trailer to members of the press at an event earlier this month, along with footage from Logan and two other 2017 Fox releases (A Cure for Wellness and War for the Planet of the Apes) that only just premiered new trailers themselves. It seems reasonable to assume that Covenant will follow suit before the year is over, too.

The version of the Covenant trailer that Fox showed to the press this month is described as taking the same approach to selling the film as the images released online have – painting Covenant as being a thriller about space explorers battling nasty extraterrestrials that are out to kill them, with shades of both the original Alien and its first sequel, Aliens. This marketing throughline is further reflect through the simple tagline featured on Covenant‘s teaser poster (“Run”), with the end goal apparently being to assure those Aliens fans who were less-than-impressed by all the philosophizing that transpires in the more atmospheric Prometheus, that Covenant (much like the Neomorph) is another sort of beast altogether.
