Check Out “Last Supper” The Prologue To ALIEN: COVENANT

20th Century Fox has released the near five minute prologue to Alien: Covenant, Ridley Scott’s follow up to 2012’s Prometheus and next chapter in the groundbreaking series he launched in 1979.

The scene introduces us to the crew of the Covenant, made up of couples and a familiar looking android, as they celebrate their last meal before going into cryosleep for their long journey to start a colony on an far off alien world. The not-so-subtle meal time scare and nod to Scott’s Alien certainly foreshadows what is to come for this and subsequent crews.

From 20th Century Fox:

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.

The cast includes Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, James Franco, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, Benjamin Rigby

Alien: Covenant is set to hit theaters May 19, 2017.
