‘Alien: Covenant’ Last Supper Clip Introduces Us to the Crew

Ridley Scott's 'Alien: Covenant' Last Supper Clip Introduces the Crew

We were all promised a treat from 20th Century Fox for Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant during tonight’s episode of FX’s “Legion”, but they decided to drop an entire short film on us. Enjoy over 4 minutes of footage titled “Prologue: Last Supper”, introducing the whole crew.

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 Prologue was conceived by Ridley Scott and 3AM, directed by Luke Scott, and produced by RSA Films.

Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant 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.

Michael Fassbender is returning as Prometheus‘ android David, with Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice, Jobs, The Babysitters) leading a new crew that includes Demian Bichir and Danny McBride (“Eastbound and Down”), as well as Alex England (Gods of Egypt), Billy Crudup, Amy Seimetz (A Horrible Way to Die, “The Killing”), Jussie Smollett (“Empire”), Carmen Ejogo, and Callie Hernandez (Machete Kills).

Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant reaches theaters on the new date of May 19, 2017.
