Alien: Covenant Starts With R-Rating in Cinemas
On October 6th, 2017, Alien: Covenant will enter US cinemas.

One of the most important aspects for fans has now been addressed by Scott himself and is very satisfying:
That means that the sequel to the prequel will continue the "R"-rated tradition of the Alien franchise if you ignore the one-time exception Alien vs. Predator (that didn't also really get much more violent in its Unrated Cut, see comparison).
