As with previous films in the "Alien" franchise, "Alien: Covenant" features another crew of humans venturing into deep-space -- and venturing to their doom. After getting a first look at "Covenant's" cast in the first cast photo and first trailer, Fox has released an extended look at an early scene from the new Ridley Scott film.
The scene, titled "Prologue: Last Supper," starts off with Fassbender's android Walter giving Daniels (Katherine Waterston) a checkup before she and the rest of the crew enters cryosleep. The captain, played by James Franco, heads to sleep early because he's feeling queasy (never a good sign in an "Alien" film) and thus the rest of the crew commences with poker and partying. But things aren't all fun and games, not when stories about alien bugs that look "like cockroaches the size of poodles" come up. The scene has the same natural dialogue and casual chatter that made Ridley Scott's original "Alien" stand out, so this scene may please fans of the original 1979 film.
Opening May 19, “Alien: Covenant” stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England and Benjamin Rigby.
