One of the two “mega” movies hitting the masses this year, Alien: Covenant (the other is the big screen rendition of Stephen King’s It) has us so juiced we’re just about doing backflips. And some of us aren’t too coordinated. Hopefully we’ll survive to see May 19th, when the film hits theaters. For now, we’ve got enough reason to keep those acrobatics in motion, as we can now see the film’s prologue, weeks in advance of arrival!
Watch it below!
The film stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, Benjamin Rigby, James Franco, and Noomi Rapace.
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.
