Arguably one of the coolest ways to introduce the characters of an upcoming film will be this cool Alien: Covenant Prologue by Ridley Scott. The official prologue to Alien: Covenant introduces the crew of the mission as they gather for a final meal before entering cryosleep.
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.
What transpires next will only take place on the big screen when Scott returns to the universe he created, with Alien: Covenant, a new chapter in his ground-breaking Alien franchise. But still it’s cool to see the main characters introduced this way in this nifty Alien: Covenant Prologue.
As far as the synopsis goes, the crew of the colony ship Covenant, has embarked on a voyage to a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy. Initially discovering what they think is an uncharted paradise is in fact a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.
Alien: Covenant Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, Benjamin Rigby, and James Franco. The film lands in cinemas this May.
