A new official photo from Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant was released today and it gives us our first look at Katherine Waterston in her role as Daniels. She is one of the lead explorers in the film, and the image came with the caption, “Nowhere to run.” There's no doubt that all of the characters in this film are going to eventually find themselves in tight and intense situations.
I'm excited about this new Alien film. I think Scott learned a lot of lessons on what not to do with Prometheus, and it's going to be great to see him fully immerse himself in this world again and hopefully give us a series of new Alien films that fans can be proud of.
Earlier this week some eerie set photos surfaced for the film, which you can see here. The film is said to include every version of xenomorph, and Scott is shooting for a hard R rating on this thing. To catch up on all the news regarding this highly anticipated sci-fi film, click here.
Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world -- whose sole inhabitant is the "synthetic" David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
The movie also stars Michael Fassbender, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir (The Hateful Eight), Jussie Smolett (Empire), Amy Seimetz (Upstream Color), Carmen Ejogo (Selma), Callie Hernandez (Machete Kills), and Billy Crudup (Watchmen).
Alien: Covenant is set to be released on August 4th, 2017.
