‘Alien: Covenant’ prologue shows calm before inevitable chest-bursting storm (VIDEO)


LOS ANGELES, Feb 23 — 20th Century Fox has released a new prologue for its upcoming Alien: Covenant.

Titled “The Last Supper,” the four-minute video introduces the colonist characters who have joined the Covenant mission to find a new world, which, of course, turns out to be a dark and dangerous place.

The clip, which centres on the crew’s final toast before going into cryosleep, is definitely one for fans as it pays homage to the iconic dinner scene in the original Alien.

Alien: Covenant is touted as being “much scarier than Prometheus” and is set 10 years after the events of that film.

Other members of the cast include James Franco, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride and Jussie Smollett.

Directed by Ridley Scott, Alien: Covenant will hit cinemas on May 19, 2017.
