We’re a few short weeks away from our return to the world of xenomorphs, Engineers and origin of all life, alien or otherwise. Alien: Covenant is the second prequel to Ridley Scott’s 1979 horror classic, and follows on from the harrowing events of 2012’s Prometheus. This new prologue bridges the two films, providing an answer to the question of what happened to Noomi Rapace’s Dr. Elizabeth Shaw and Michael Fassbender’s David.

Alien Covenant PrometheusAs Ridley Scott himself explains this scene picks up the story after Prometheus survivors Shaw and the badly damaged android have escaped on the crashed Engineer spaceship. Shaw nurses (solders) David back to health and together they explore the ship, and settle on a course to the alien beings’ homeworld in a scene that looks utterly spectacular.

Alien Covenant PrometheusThis is not the only prologue we have for the events of Alien: Covenant. Luke Scott repeated his Peter Weyland TED talk promo for the new film with the five minute short, centred around life on the Covenant before it all goes to hell.

Take a look…

Prometheus Epilogue/Alien: Covenant Prologue

The 19th of May is when Alien Covenant will be released in cinemas across the globe. If this one does well we may well see more Alien films, with another sequel written and already plans for many more. Fun!

Also previewed yesterday (on a clever use of the 4/26 date – proclaimed as Alien Day) was the new Oculus ‘In Utero’ VR Experience produced by Ridley Scott. A preview videos is below, showing off the harrowing moment of birth. Amazing.

Further world building comes in the form of these recently released crew transmissions from the new ship Covenant. Also from a time before the film starts, it’s fun to see the crew before everything kicks off.




Here’s another poster for the film, teasing a close encounter for Katherine Waterston.

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with ALIEN: COVENANT, a new chapter in his groundbreaking ALIEN franchise. 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.
