About the Alien: Covenant Prologue

Set aboard the Covenant, a colonization ship on its way to a remote planet to form a new human settlement, the main crew (all couples) and their android, Walter, enjoy their final meal together before cryosleep. The short was conceived by Ridley Scott and 3AM, directed by Luke Scott (Ridley’s Son), and produced by RSA Films. It is not included in the film itself, but rather the start of the viral marketing campaign.

It introduces the crew of the colony ship: Covenant enjoying a last meal together before entering cryosleep. James Franco is featured in the clip as the captain, who retires to rest due to not feeling well before the crew celebrate their journey. The meal is somewhat reminiscent of the original Alien, including a very on the nose, tense moment to throw viewers off.

The Alien: Covenant Movie

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with Alien: Covenant, a new chapter in his groundbreaking Alien franchise. 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.
