Starring Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Demian Bachir, Jussie Smolett, Amy Seitmetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez, and Billy Crudup. Noomi Rapace is expected to reprise her role as Dr. Elizabeth Shaw, and James Franco as the Captain of the title ship.
Set as the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus, Alien: Covenant connects directly to Ridley Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. 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.
Ridley Scott directs once again from a screenplay by Jack Pagan and Michael Green.
Alien: Covenant hits theaters on May 19.
