Before they entered hyper-sleep, the Covenant crew recorded these videos.
Ahead of next week’s “Alien Day” and next month’s Alien: Covenant, we’ve been seeing a whole lot of promotion for the Ridley Scott-directed prequel to the 1979 classic. Earlier this week, found footage-style recordings introduced us to characters Daniels (Katherine Waterston) and Christopher Oram (Billy Crudup), and three more of those have arrived today for Tennessee (Danny McBride), Lope (Demian Bechir) and Rosenthal (Tess Haubrich). I don’t want to spoil anything for ya, but one of them once punched a horse in the mouth on St. Patrick’s Day.
Check out the vids below to find out which one… though I think you already know!
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.
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.
Alien: Covenant takes off for Paradise on May 19, 2017.
