The crew of the Covenant gather for one last party before they go into cryo sleep in this 4 minute clip from the beginning of Alien: Covenant.
This is a promising look at the upcoming Alien: Covenant, with at least one nod to Ridley Scott’s original film (“food’s not that bad”) and an already likable crew. Too bad most (if not all of them) will die by the end of the movie. Also how crazy is it they had to wait for James Franco to leave before the party started. At this point we don’t have to wait much longer for Alien: Covenant, less than 3 months, and Fox showing this clip in its entirety hopefully means they’re confident in the final movie, which is of course rated R (a hard one according to Ridley Scott).
Ridley Scott directed Alien: Covenant and John Logan (Skyfall) wrote the screenplay. Starring in the sci-fi horror are Michael Fassbender (back as android David, from Prometheus, although the one in the above clip is obviously another model), James Franco, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Noomi Rapace and Guy Pearce (both reprising their Prometheus roles).
Alien: Covenant opens May 10th in France (lucky them) and May 19th in the US and most of the world.
