Alien: Covenant marks visionary director Ridley Scott’s return to the universe he created.
The film follows the crew of a colony ship bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy that discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape. The ensemble cast includes Michael Fassbender (The “X-Men” Franchise), Katherine Waterston (“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”), Billy Crudup (“Almost Famous”) and Danny McBride (“The Angry Birds Movie”).
“I thought I’d left science fiction for too long, that I had better climb back in. Prometheus was a great experience for me,” Ridley Scott told Empire. “Chasing number two, we can start evolving the grand idea.” Scott has said that the film will serve as a “joining up” of Prometheus and the original Alien films, and we may have finally learned exactly how the classic Xenomorphs came into being.
