The first trailer for Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant, the follow-up to the director’s 2012 film Prometheus, has arrived.
The film focuses on the crew of the Covenant, a colony ship whose members believe they have stumbled upon a new paradise. It’s through their exploration, however, that they discover the artificially intelligent David (Michael Fassbender), the survivor of the catastrophic Prometheus expedition.
In an interview earlier this year, Scott said that Alien: Covenant would focus on the “why and how and when the beast was invented.” Scott also confirmed Covenant would “go back into the back door of the first Alien movie.”
Fassbender will be joined by James Franco, Guy Pearce and Katherine Waterston in Covenant.
