In the chilling expanse of space, the iconic “Alien” saga continues with its latest installment, “Alien: Romulus.” This sci-fi/horror-thriller takes audiences back to the franchise’s harrowing roots, blending dread and discovery in equal measure. Directed by the visionary Fede Alvarez, known for his work on “Evil Dead” and “Don’t Breathe,” and co-written with Rodo Sayagues, “Alien: Romulus” promises to be a heart-pounding journey into the unknown.


Deep in the void of space lies a derelict space station, its halls silent, its history a mystery. A group of young space colonizers, driven by ambition and the promise of new beginnings, embark on a salvage mission to uncover its secrets. Among them are Cailee Spaeny, embodying the resilient Priscilla; David Jonsson, as the cunning Agatha Christie’s Murder is Easy; Archie Renaux, portraying the brave soul from “Shadow and Bone”; Isabela Merced, the survivor from “The Last of Us”; Spike Fearn, the hopeful youth of “Aftersun”; and Aileen Wu, whose past roles have yet to define her future brilliance.

Their mission takes a horrifying turn when they encounter the most terrifying life form in the universe. The Alien, as merciless and lethal as ever, stalks the corridors of the space station, turning their quest for knowledge into a desperate fight for survival. The darkness of space holds no fury like the creature that lurks within it, and “Alien: Romulus” brings this terror to the forefront.
