It’s been speculated that the cryptic numbers — which have come along with other photos released via Twitter — could hint at the release of the film’s trailer, however, there are no concrete clues to support the theory at this point.
The official synopsis for “Alien: Covenant” reads:
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 (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
Directed by Scott and starring “Prometheus'” Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace, alongside Katherine Waterston (“Inherent Vice”), Danny McBride (“Eastbound & Down”), Demián Bichir (“The Hateful Eight”), Jussie Smolett (“Empire”), Amy Seimetz (“Upstream Color”), Carmen Ejogo (“Selma”), Callie Hernandez (“Machete Kills”) and Billy Crudup (“Watchmen”), “Alien: Covenant” hits theaters on May 19, 2017.
