20th Century Fox has released a new ‘video village’ photo from the Australian set of Ridley Scott’s “Alien: Covenant”. The photo, blurry as it is, features our first look at Katherine Waterston’s lead explorer character Daniels. Michael Fassbender, Danny McBride, Demian Bichir, Jussie Smolett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez and Billy Crudup also star in this second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with “Prometheus”.

The story follows 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 dangerous worl whose sole inhabitant is the ‘synthetic’ David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition. The film opens August 4th.
