20th Century Fox has released a prologue to Ridley Scott‘s latest entry in the Alien franchise, titled Alien: Covenant.
The prologue is called “Last Supper,” and it runs a little under five minutes in length. It follows the crew of the Covenant we saw in a recent image, including Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Billy Crudup, and DemiÃ¡n Bichir, letting loose and enjoying their last meal together before going into cryosleep on their way to colonize a far away planet.
Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner) returns to the universe he created, with Alien: Covenant, a new chapter in his groundbreaking Alien franchise.
The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape. Check out a new photo of the crew after the jump!
Hopefully, all of you have been good little boys and girls, because 20th Century Fox has one last gift for you under the movie trailer tree. Today, the studio released the first trailer for Alien: Covenant. Directed by Ridley Scott, the film is the follow-up to Prometheus, and centers on a crew bound for a remote planet across the far side of the galaxy where they discover that paradise is actually a dangerous place inhabited by David (Michael Fassbender), the sole surviving synthetic android of the doomed spaceship Prometheus.
Today is Ridley Scott‘s 79th birthday. So happy birthday, Mr. Scott. The man who brought us Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator, and The Martian, not to mention the many other films and TV shows he is a producer on. He is currently hard at work putting the finishing touches on Alien: Covenant.
So to help celebrate this momentous occasion a new behind-the-scenes photo from the set of Scott’s upcoming film has been released. If you think a simple image being released on the Internet isn’t enough, well then you should be happy to know that the Directors Guild of America is giving the Academy Award-winning director a Lifetime Achievement Award for his work in film. Check out the image below.
Another unexpected treat on this holiday is a brand new poster for director Ridley Scott‘s next Alien movie, titled Alien: Covenant. It’s about as simple as they come, and it’s a safe bet that no fan of the franchise is going to have even the slightest problem with that.
Even more exciting? The poster has a release date on it, and it is not the October 6, 2017 date we previously knew about, nor is it the even earlier August 4, 2017 date it got pushed up to. Unlike most movies, which often get delayed, the new Alien is moving closer once again with a new May 19, 2017 release date.
