“Alien: Romulus” is the latest addition to the legendary “Alien” franchise, slated for release on August 16, 2024. Directed by Fede Álvarez, known for his work on “Don’t Breathe” and the 2013 “Evil Dead” reboot, the film is set to carve its own space within the Alien universe. It’s described as an “original stand-alone” installment that will not directly connect to previous films, offering a fresh narrative to the saga. The plot revolves around a group of young individuals on a distant world who encounter the most terrifying life form in the universe, the Xenomorphs.Alien: Romulus

The cast includes rising stars such as Cailee Spaeny, alongside David Jonsson, Archie Renaux, Isabela Merced, Spike Fearn, and Aileen Wu. The film promises to bring the familiar thrill of the franchise, set between the first two films “Alien” and “Aliens,” and will pay homage to the series’ rich legacy while venturing into new territory.

Production concluded in early July 2023 after nearly four months of filming, primarily in Budapest, suggesting a scale and scope reminiscent of the original “Alien” film. With Ridley Scott serving as an executive producer, expectations are high that “Alien: Romulus” will deliver a chilling and evocative experience that fans of the series are eager for​​​​.
