20th Century Fox keeps releasing more photos from Ridley Scott’s “Alien: Covenant,” this one seemingly featuring Michael Fassbender’s android – but whether it’s ‘David’ or the new android ‘Walter’ is unclear. More interesting here is that, while the other photos came with a cryptic number, this one deliberately does not.
Set as the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with “Prometheus,” “Alien: Covenant” connects directly to Ridley Scott’s 1979 seminal “Alien” and begins with the colony ship Covenant discovering a dark, dangerous world whose sole inhabitant is the ‘synthetic’ David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
“Alien: Covenant” hits cinemas on May 19th. The first trailer is slated to go online soon.
