Fede Alvarez unleashes Face Huggers and Xenomorphs

If there's anyone who can successfully resurrect the Alien franchise, it's Fede Alvarez (Evil Dead, Don't Breathe). The Uruguayan horror director is attempting to do just that with his new movie, Alien: Romulus, the teaser trailer for which dropped on the internet today.

Judging from the tension-filled, minute-long clip, Alvarez is bringing back all the claustrophobic terror of the Ridley Scott-helmed original. Face Huggers and the Xenomorph run amok, and we get glimpses of our surely mostly doomed main characters.

Cailee Spaeny (The Craft: Legacy, Pacific Rim Uprising) leads the cast, which also features Isabela Merced, David Jonsson, Archie Renaux, Spike Fearn and Aileen Wu.

Alien: Romulus takes place in between the classic first two films in the series, Alien and James Cameron's Aliens. Fede Alvarez co-wrote the script with Rodo Sayagues (Evil Dead) with Ridley Scott producing. The official synopsis reads: "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."

Alien: Romulus will be released in theaters only on August 16th.
