Following its debut on FX’s Legion, 20th Century Fox has released the Alien: Covenant prologue! The prologue introduces the crew of the mission as they gather for a final meal before entering cryosleep. Set aboard the Covenant, a colonization ship on its way to a remote planet to form a new human settlement, the main crew (all couples) and their android, Walter, enjoy their final meal together before cryosleep.
The Alien: Covenant prologue was conceived by Ridley Scott and 3AM, directed by Luke Scott, and produced by RSA Films.
Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created with Alien: Covenant, a new chapter in his groundbreaking Alien franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, 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.
