We’re about 3 months from Alien: Covenant, so the movie lords have gifted us with a special prologue to the film. Entitled Last Supper, the clip introduces the Covenant’s crew, the dynamics therein, and also explains their main mission, which is colonization. Eagle eyed viewers will recognize a reference to facehuggers, but the big surprise here, is seeing James Franco as the ship’s Captain. Overall, it’s a nice slice of what’s to come, setting a lot narrative threads into motion in a way that feels more natural than anything that was in Prometheus.
Here’s to hoping this one turns out great! Alien: Covenant hits theatres May 19th, 2017.
