We're stacking up a sensational new set of promos for Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant, just as we pull inside a week before launch on May 19. So strap in and enjoy the ride.

First up is the new "Rare Breed" featurette tying the legacy of Scott and the Alien franchise together. The filmmaker discusses the challenge of raising the bar and maintaining the terror in subsequent sequels. His answer to the posed question is to bring in some nasty new creatures, which we get a few surprise backstage glimpses of during testimonials from the main stars.

Next is a fun B-roll video complete with riveting on-set production footage and bloopers showing the cast and crew during some lighter moments between takes. Watch for the cool anatomical drawings that might be part of David's laboratory studies, and the black goo urns and ampules stacked amid the mind-boggling sets.

Lastly, check out the latest installment of Adam Savage's Tested and his illuminating Alien: Covenant set visit to Fox Studios in Sydney, with the geeky guru slipping into the movie's sleek, futuristic Weyland-Yutani spacesuits. See Savage marvel at the suit designs alongside costume designers Janty Yates and Michael Mooney, and learn how 3D design is married to industrial technology to create the awesome outer-space outfits.
