A new cast & crew pic has arrived, which gives us a fresh look at Fassbender, the new lead, Katherine Waterston, as well as our first official view of James Franco in the film, who is rumoured to be playing Ellen Ripley’s father.
Here’s the brief synopsis: ‘Set as the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus, Alien: Covenant connects directly to Ridley Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. It begins with the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy. There, the crew 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 will be in cinemas next May.
