Everything You Need to Know About the 'Alien' Franchise to Understand 'Alien: Covenant'

18 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Like a mysterious parasite that infects your body and results in a demon-faced alien spawn bursting from your chest and rapidly growing into a murderous eight-foot creature, the Alien franchise has made its presence known over the past 30-something years, itself spawning a number of sequels (Aliens, Alien 3, Alien: Resurrection), crossovers and 2012's it's-not-a-prequel-but-really-it's-a-prequel, Prometheus.

If you've never seen Prometheus -- or if you saw Prometheus, hated Prometheus and had a sort of Ptsd reaction to Prometheus that now renders you incapable of remembering anything that happened in that movie -- you may think the latest installment, Alien: Covenant, is not for you. But it can be! There's even a section in the middle of the movie where it stops to just kind of...explain the plot of Prometheus. But while Covenant proves an easy enough entry point for those new to the Alien franchise, you may still have a few questions. Hopefully, ahead »
