A Bunch of New Hi-Res Photos from Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien: Covenant’

Thanks to a German website known as Kinobusiness, we have a bunch of brand new hi-res photos from Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant, which reveal some stills of star Katherine Waterston, along with a few of the dropship.

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).

Alien: Covenant director Ridley Scott promises to answer questions regarding confused viewers of Prometheus. Scott previously said: “Covenant is really going to show you who did it and why.

Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant will be invading theaters on its new release date of May 19, 2017.
