ALIEN: COVENANT Featurette Explains the Connection to PROMETHEUS and There's a New Poster
There's a new featurette for Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant that's been released called "The Next Chapter" and gives us an explanation of how this new Alien film connects to Prometheus by bridging the ten-year gap between the two stories. It includes interviews with Ridley Scott and Michael Fassbender and even offers us some new footage for you check out.
Some of that footage includes a younger version of Peter Weyland (Guy Pearce) in deep conversation with the android Walter and a few other shots that fans will be interested in checking out. I've also included a new international poster you can see above along with a previously released poster below that I never got around to posting.
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.
Alien: Covenant stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, Benjamin Rigby, and James Franco.
Alien: Covenant is set to open in theaters on May 19.
