Some New ‘Alien: Covenant’ Photos Appear Online Via Empire

Just a warning, there’s probably a few spoilers here. The marketing campaign continues with some exclusive photos from Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant via Empire‘s latest issue. One spoiler is the shot of the Neomorph, which is shown up close and personal. Also, we have a shot of David releasing bombs on the Engineers’ home planet.

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 reaches theaters on the new date of May 19, 2017.
