A new image from Ridley Scott’s upcoming sci-fi horror/thriller Alien: Covenant has just been released, and it gives a better look at the planet that the film will take place on. Coming from Empire, we can see that the planet is lush and beautiful, covered in forests and mountains with waterfalls in the distance.
Empire also explains that the expedition to this planet was not a planned event. Rather, much like in Alien, the crew is diverted on account of receiving a distress signal. Just as in the original, good intentions will almost certainly lead to severely negative consequences…
Yesterday, a prologue video of the crew enjoying what is called their “Last Supper” was released. You can watch it here.
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.
The cast of Alien: Covenant includes 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.
