Alien: Covenant Prologue "Last Supper" Shows The Final Toast Before Cryosleep
The calm before the inevitable chest-bursting storm.
Premiering during tonight's episode of Legion, 20th Century Fox released a new prologue for its upcoming Alien: Covenant, entitled "Last Supper."
Featuring the headlining crew of the titular colony ship Covenant, the Last Supper prologue gives viewers a chance to experience the crew's final toast before entering cryosleep.
Opening with Michael Fassbender as the android Wesley performing a medical on Daniels (Katerine Waterson), the prologue moves on to show the ship captain Branson (James Franco) heading to bed early due to feeling poorly. Unsupervised, the crew begins its revelry, betting on an arm-wrestle, drinking, pausing to help Callie Hernandez's character as she chokes on her food, and finally toasting to the success of the mission.
The "much scarier than Prometheus" sequel is set 10 years after the events of that film, giving Fassbender the opportunity to play multiple roles, both as Walter, and reprising his roles as the earlier version of the android, David.
Aliens: Covenant will hit theatres on May 19, 2017.
Director Ridley Scott confirmed in January that the film would be getting a VR companion experience some time this year. In another interview, Scott also confirmed back in 2015 that Aliens: Covenant would include the four classic incarnations of the Alien, including the egg, facehugger, chestburster, and the "big boy."
