Sony Screen Gems has released an extended preview of their upcoming thriller The Covenant. Actually, it is the first three minutes.

Extended The Covenant Clip

In 1692, in the Ipswich Colony of Massachusetts, five families with untold power formed a covenant of silence. One family, lusting for more, was banished - their bloodline disappearing without a trace. Until now.

Directed by Renny Harlin and written by J.S. Cardone, The Covenant tells the story of the Sons of Ipswich, four young students at the elite Spenser Academy who are bound by their sacred ancestry. As descendants of the original families who settled in Ipswich Colony in the 1600's, the boys have all been born with special powers. When the body of a dead student is discovered after a party, secrets begin to unravel which threaten to break the covenant of silence that has protected their families for hundreds of years.

The problem with this clip is that it doesn't show much at all of the actual film. Like the intro clip for The Illusionist, this extended clip for The Covenant spends a majority of its time on the film's credits and no real footage. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love White Zombie's "More Human Than Human" and have appreciated its uses in film, but that is the only kick I got out of this clip.

Maybe next time Sony can deliver three minutes from somewhere in the middle of the film.

You can check out the clip HERE.

The Covenant comes to theatres on September 8th.
