“Alien: Covenant” Gets A 5-Minute Prologue

Turns out today’s release from Ridley Scott’s “Alien: Covenant” isn’t a trailer after all, but rather a full five-minute prologue scene introducing us to the crew of the Covenant as they gather for a final meal before entering cryosleep.

The main crew seems to consist of a lot of couples along with their android, Walter. In the film the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world.

Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demian Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England and Benjamin Rigby star in the film which opens May 19th.
