The 'Prometheus' sequel arrives on both formats this August.
As previously reported, 20th Century Fox is preparing Alien: Covenant for Blu-ray -- which includes 7.1 DTS-HD MA audio -- and Ultra HD Blu-ray -- which includes an exclusive Dolby Atmos mix -- and now the date has been set for August 15.
The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an unchartered paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a terrifying threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.
Featuring an all-star cast including Academy Award Nominee Michael Fassbender (X-Men franchise, Steve Jobs), Katherine Waterston (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), Billy Crudup (Jackie), Danny McBride (This Is The End) and Demián Bichir (The Hateful Eight), ALIEN: COVENANT is loaded with bonus material including a making-of documentary, deleted and extended scenes, commentary by director Ridley Scott, an inside look at “David’s Lab,” crew fear tests, and much more.
There will also be numerous retailer exclusives including SteelBook Packaging (Best Buy), Digibook Packaging (Target) and Alien Day T-Shirts (Wal-Mart).
