Now Playing: Alien: Covenant - Prologue: The Crossing

The two-and-a-half minute video above features the two survivors of Prometheus, David and Elizabeth Shaw. Shaw repairs David and the damage he suffered toward the end of that movie, and he in turn puts her into stasis as they make the long journey toward the Engineers' homeworld.

At the end, their ship arrives on (presumably) that planet and seems to be met by a massive crowd of beings. The video concludes with an ominous quote from Ozymandias, "Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair."

That final shot appears to connect to a Covenant image we saw released recently, which showed pods being dropped from a spacecraft.

Beyond Covenant--which releases on May 19, director Ridley Scott has plans for even more Alien movies. That includes one, Alien: Awakening, that will take place between Prometheus and Covenant.
