Want to head behind the scenes of Alien: Covenant BEFORE it comes out?!
On Wednesday, May 10th at 9:45pm EST, just about a week and a half before the release of Alien: Covenant, HBO will delve behind the scenes of Ridley Scott’s latest franchise installment with a 13-minute special titled “HBO First Look: Alien Covenant.” What can you expect from it? In celebration of Alien Day, the network just uploaded a 30-second teaser for the special.
And yes, that’s totally a practical Xenomorph up above. Check out the teaser below!
Katherine Waterston stars while 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.
Alien: Covenant takes off for Paradise on May 19, 2017.
