This New Alien: Covenant Prologue Clip Features Camaraderie and... James Franco?

Katie RamirezFeb 25, 2017

Or, at least, that seems to be the impression left by "Prologue: Last Supper", the new four-minute sneak peak of Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant. The prologue shows the crew of the Covenant having a "last supper" of sorts before entering cryosleep, so one imagines the beginning of Alien: Covenant starts with the crew waking up, as with Prometheus.

Conceived by Ridley Scott and 3AM, directed by Luke Scott, and produced by RSA Films.

Alien: Covenant hits theaters on May 19th. Just this moment, we got a picture of the entire cast gathered together and ready for their mission.

The photo was tweeted with the caption - "Introducing the #AlienCovenant crew". Now, it would seem that he might be the iconic first alien victim. The two arm-wrestled and shared a kiss. While characters played by James Franco - who we learn is the captain - and Billy Crudup are in awe of their view, Danny McBride has another take: "I don't know what you're talking about". Welcome to the future, where your sexuality does not prevent you from going on terrifying space voyages! It's a cute video that doesn't offer too much information about the events of the film, but there is a very sweet moment where one of the crew members is choking and David (Michael Fassbender) comes to her rescue. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, risky world - whose sole inhabitant is the "synthetic" David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

It's about time the Alien series got an openly LGBTQ character.

Based on a new photo from the upcoming prequel, Alien: Covenant, the crew of the titular ship also has Aspen Beer brand loyalty.
