Movies and TV shows rely on social media more than ever these days. Whether it’s connecting with fans almost instantaneously or dropping hints about upcoming storylines or currently filming projects this is a new day and age for entertainment.
Take the Twitter page @AlienAnthology. They regularly share little behind-the-scenes bits from the past classic films and even give little peeks into Ridley Scott’s current project, the Prometheus sequel / Alien prequel Alien: Covenant. And one of the latest offerings was a possible look into what we can expect the actual alien to look like.
It’s not a full look at what the xenomorph will look like (we most likely won’t get that until the first actual trailer), but for now we get a look at what may be the hand:

So we can assume that the xenomorphs will start to take the form they show in the first Alien film from the looks of this. And because the aliens tend to evolve with each race that they incubate in, it’s a safe bet that more than one of the crew in this film will come throat-to-weird-tube-thingy with a facehugger or two.
We’ll know for sure when Alien: Covenant hits theaters in a little over a year, on August 4, 2017.
