Last month it was announced that Ridley Scott's horror classic Alien will be screening at this year's SXSW Film Festival in Austin, and now it's been revealed that the screening will include special guests Scott, Michael Fassbender, and Danny McBride, as well as a sneak peek of Scott's new film, Alien: Covenant.

The special screening of Alien and the Alien: Covenant sneak peek will take place on March 10th at 10:00pm CT at the Paramount Theatre in Austin, TX. While Scott and Alien: Covenant co-stars Fassbender and McBride will be in attendance, it's not yet known if an audience Q&A will take place or how much footage of Alien: Covenant attendees will be treated to. Daily Dead will be on site with live coverage of the festival, and we'll be sure to keep you updated on this event and other screenings.

In the meantime, you can check out the official details on the screening below, as well as the previously released teaser trailer for Alien: Covenant, coming out in theaters on May 19th via 20th Century Fox.

From SXSW: "20th Century Fox is taking you back to the original terror that taught us in space no one can hear you scream. Join director Ridley Scott with Michael Fassbender and Danny McBride to re-experience the original 1979 film and catch a sneak peek of their new film "Alien: Covenant" that will be in theaters May 19, 2017."

Alien: Covenant synopsis: "Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. 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."
