Fox has released an extended prologue for the upcoming Alien: Covenant.
This is not a spoiler as this bit of promotional material will not appear in the film itself. This little scene was actually directed by Ridley Scott’s son Luke and gives us an intriguing look into the Covenant crew.
We find out what this seemingly rag-tag group of crew members are actually up to and get a taste of the cast of characters. There’s even an entertaining visual gag that should please most fans of the series.
The scene takes place hours before the crew goes into hypersleep and the group is celebrating their “last supper” of sorts. This is a one way trip it seems, as the crew talks about all the things that they’ll miss most from home. We see Danny McBride’s fun loving character that may hit the bottle a little too hard, Billy Crudup’s meek and probably sniveling character, alongside other entertaining members.
This is a cool bit of promotional material that I would love to see more of in the future.
It’s a shame that most of them are going to die horribly.
