With a prologue clip titled “The Last Supper”, this opening scene to Alien: Covenant literally sets the table for what’s to come in this sequel to Prometheus. Helmed by returning director Ridley Scott, Alien: Covenant continues to advance the Alien mythology that Prometheus expanded.
This is the studio’s official synopsis:
- Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with ALIEN: COVENANT, a new chapter in his groundbreaking ALIEN franchise.
