Filming has officially wrapped on Ridley Scott’s “Alien: Covenant” and to celebrate the end of filming a new official behind-the-scenes photo has been released featuring both Scott and the film’s leading female star Katherine Waterston. The picture comes as James Cameron’s “Aliens” celebrates it 30th anniversary this week.
Set as the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with “Prometheus,” the story 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.
Michael Fassbender, Danny McBride, Demian Bichir, Jussie Smolett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez, and Billy Crudup co-star in the film which opens August 4th.
