Here’s the first look at Ridley Scott and Michael Fassbender on the set of Alien: Covenant.
The film is the second part of a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus, and connects directly to Ridley Scott’s Alien.
It begins with the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy. There, the crew 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.
The cast includes Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Jussie Smolett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez and Billy Crudup.
Alien: Covenant is filming in Australia and is due to be released in August 2017.
