A brand new short film that is an official prologue for Alien: Covenant has just been released online, serving up the “Last Supper” to introduce the crew of the highly anticipated Alien prequel/Prometheus sequel!
Conceived by director Ridley Scott and 3AM, directed by Luke Scott, and produced by RSA Films, this official prologue to Alien: Covenant introduces the crew of the mission as they gather for a final meal before entering cryosleep.
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 their final meal together before cryosleep.
Legendary filmmaker Ridley Scott, who created the franchise with the original 1979 Alien and returned to helm Prometheus in 2012, directs Alien: Covenant.
The official synopsis: 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 includes Michael Fassbender and Noomi Repace reprising their roles from Prometheus, as well as (Halloween 2018 co-writer) Danny McBride, Demian Bichir, Jussie Smolett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez, Billy Crudup, and James Franco.
