Last night’s new TV spot offered one helluva shocker – Noomi Rapace is returning as Elizabeth Shaw in Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant, in theaters May 19th.
Now, Fox UK sent us this brand new one-sheet that harks back to the original Alien films, showing Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice, Jobs, The Babysitters) doing her best impersonation of Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) as a Xenomorph sneaks up behind her. It’s yet another stunning piece of art that needs to be hanging on my wall.
Michael Fassbender returns 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.
Scott had previously promised to answer questions that left Prometheus viewers confused: “Covenant is really going to show you who did it and why.”
