“The official prologue to Alien: Covenant introduces the crew of the mission as they gather for a final meal before entering cryosleep.” That’s the official description of this almost five-minute teaser for the new addition to the Alien franchise. “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.”
The key word here is “teaser”. The video has quite a bit of clever fun with audience expectations.
Ridley Scott directed. No sign of Sigourney Weaver, but there’s always hope that her character will make a cameo appearance via video/holograph/whatever.
The film is scheduled for a 19 May 2017 release.
