It’s a new dawn and a new day, so it’s a new set of Alien: Covenant images for me – and for you. Check them out below. They show David/Walter (Michael Fassbender) getting up to some suspicious business and also show him peering off the edge of the ship where we last saw Dr. Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace).
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, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
The footage and imagery we’ve seen so far have teased a pretty scary addition to the Alien universe, but Fassbender promises that Ridley Scott’s latest will pose bigger questions about life and what may lie afterwards. He said:
“On top of action and humour and characters you become invested in, there’s these very real questions about life and the origins of life and what happens in the afterlife — if there is an afterlife.”
Answers (and probably more questions) will be revealed when Alien: Covenant is released on 19th May 2017.
