20th Century Fox’s upcoming film, Alien: Covenant is aiming for “a pretty hard” rating, according to director, Ridley Scott.

“I always remember walking down the edge in Saint Louis when we were previewing [Alien].

I couldn’t sit through the film one more time. I walked down the edge into the kitchen scene when John Hurt started to bring up his breakfast.

That moment, I realized how pretty scary the film was… I felt a sense of responsibility that, ‘Had I gone too far?’ because it was extreme.

I’m going to try and do that again this year, but much worse,” Scott revealed backstage after winning a Golden Globe for The Martian.

Last month, we learned that Alien: Covenant is set 10 years in the future beyond Prometheus.

The film features Noomi Rapace as Elizabeth Shaw, Michael Fassbender as David and Katherine Waterston as Daniels.

“Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.”

Directed by Ridley Scott & screenplay by Jack Paglen and Michael Green.

Alien: Covenant hits theaters on October 6, 2017.
