The franchise in chronological order is as follows:

1) AVP: Alien vs Predator (2004)
2) AVP: Aliens vs Predator: Requiem (2007)
3) Prometheus (2012)
4) Alien: Covenant (2017)
5) Alien (1979)
6) Alien: Romulus (2024) *NEW*
7) Aliens (1986)
8) Alien 3 (1992)
9) Alien Resurrection (1997)

“Alien: Romulus” is set to open in cinemas on August 16, 2024.
