Alien: Covenant – new official image

A new image from the production of Alien: Covenant introduces Katherine Waterston’s leading character…

Ridley Scott’s space horror saga will continue with next year’s Alien: Covenant, a sequel to 2012’s Prometheus and a prequel to 1979’s Alien. Reintroducing Michael Fassbender’s steel-eyed synthetic David and bringing in a new ship full of doomed explorers, Covenant is the latest of three planned prequels to Scott’s 70s classic.

With filming currently underway in New Zealand, 20th Century Fox has put out a new image to get us in the astral terror mood – and it’s certainly more interesting than the iron on badge picture we got back in April. The image comes from a monitor on the shoot itself, and gives us a first look at Katherine Waterstone’s character, Daniels – who we’re told is the film’s protagonist.
