The latest issue of Empire Magazine features a multi-page profile of Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant, and the subscriber exclusive version of the mag is now arriving on doorsteps. Unlike the regular issue that you’ll find on newsstands, the subscriber edition has a stunning cover that features the iconic Xenomorph design in embossed cardboard, which you’ll find a pic of below.
The folks over on AvP Galaxy just got their hands on scans of the inside pages, which showcase some brand new imagery that we haven’t seen before. In addition to the Engineers’ home planet, which will be the setting of an absolutely epic sequence that we cannot wait to see, the issue also shows off one of the film’s new Neomorphs. It’s the best look we’ve gotten so far.
Check out the scans below and see the full spread on AvP Galaxy.

Katherine Waterston stars with Michael Fassbender returning as Prometheus‘ android David (and Walter), with a crew that includes Demian Bichir and Danny McBride (“Eastbound and Down”), as well as Alex England (Gods of Egypt), Billy Crudup, Amy Seimetz (A Horrible Way to Die, “The Killing”), Jussie Smollett (“Empire”), Carmen Ejogo, and Callie Hernandez (Machete Kills). James Franco also has a role, which was confirmed in this short film.

Scott had previously promised to answer questions that left Prometheus viewers confused: “Covenant is really going to show you who did it and why.”
