A new photo from Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant has surfaced, and the visual reminds me of the Colonial Marines from James Cameron's Aliens. I have no idea what is going on in this image, but this definitely looks like a military group, which I assume this is the crew of the Covenant exploring the remote planet where they will come face to face with a xenomorph threat that will tear them apart, one by one. Of course, it would be pretty freakin' specatcular if there was a side group of Colonial Marines that did show up in the film!
The photo came with the number sequence 220512052104. I'm not really sure what it means, but some people speculate that it could be a time and date such as 22:05 12/05/2104. Is this the time and date that this scene takes place in? I have no idea.
“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 (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.”
Alien: Covenant also stars Katherine Waterston, Demian Bichir, and Danny McBride and is set to hit theaters on August 4, 2017.
