‘Alien: Covenant‘ came out as #1 at the weekend box office, but only beat out #2 Guardians of The Galaxy: Vol 2 by almost $1 million in its third week of release. It’s always good to be #1 at the weekend box office, but $35 million for a highly anticipated movie like Alien Covenant is not that great. In the comparison of two films that are based on outer-space, Guardians is still coming out stronger than Alien. Alien is a very dark and scary R-rated film, while Guardians shows a much lighter and funnier PG-13 version of the cosmos.
Alien: Covenant tells the story of a crew bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy. While on their adventure the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise. As their new world begins to reveal itself it shows that there is no trails of paradise in sight. What they think is a happy place is actually a dark, dangerous world that turns the world as the know it upside down. The sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David, survivor of a doomed expedition. The mysterious world turns deadly when a hostile alien life-form forces the crew into a deadly fight for survival.
