Director Ridley Scott gives you a taste of what’s to come with this 4 1/2 minute Alien: Covenant prologue.
Information on Ridley Scott’s upcoming film Alien: Covenant has been scarce, but fans have been given a real treat thanks to this 4 1/2 minute prologue called, ominously, “Last Supper”.
Fans of the original Alien will feel a familiarity with both the location and shooting style as Scott puts his crew around the dinner table once again. The big change is how many people are around that table and the larger context of why they’re all there.
Michael Fassbender is back as the ever calm and logical David, but he’s the only “returning” character in this sequel to Prometheus.
There’s a lot going on in this clip and it’s nice to be introduced to them before the film is released. Now we can start wondering how many of them are going to survive. You know the minute you send this many people into space, especially in the Alien film universe, odds are good more than a few people are going to die.
Place your bets.
Alien: Covenant hits theaters May 19th.
