Fox released a prologue short to Alien: Covenant called The Crossing and in it we find out what happened to Dr. Elisabeth Shaw and David after Prometheus.
Now that’s what I call a tease, too bad Alien: Covenant isn’t just this, David and Elizabeth Shaw going after the Engineers. What we see here will only be a small part of Alien: Covenant, with most of the action revolving around the crew of the colony ship Covenant. Now say what you will about the rest of Prometheus (I personally liked the movie), but that ending was very promising and it’s actually what I’m most looking forward to seeing in Covenant, the David and Elizabeth parts. What the hell happened with the Engineers (I’m guessing something bad happened to Elizabeth and David did not take it well) and how does that tie into the Covenant story (they might have landed on the same planet)? Those are questions that will hopefully be answered very soon.
Ridley Scott directed this newest installment in the Alien franchise while the screenplay was written by John Logan (Skyfall) and Dante Harper. Starring in the sci-fi thriller are Michael Fassbender, James Franco, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Guy Pearce, Noomi Rapace and a few others.
Alien: Covenant hits theaters May 10th in France, May 12th in the UK and May 19th in the US.
