Captain James Franco is a buzzkill (also…a captain). Kenny Powers is in space (finally). I have to say—seeing those two in a serious movie like Alien: Covenant is pretty surprising. I’m not sure what to make of it, but a 4:30 prologue to Ridley Scott’s latest Alien film is waiting for you below.
Ahhh…that moment of panic. Nice teaser. Apparently the Heimlich maneuver isn’t cool enough for the future.
The Prologue: Last Supper short introduces the crew of the mission. Set aboard the Covenant, a colonization ship on its way to a remote planet to form a new human settlement, the main crew (all couples) and their android, Walter, enjoy one last meal together before cryosleep.
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.
Alien: Covenant arrives in theaters on May 19, 2017.
