WATCH: The Four-Minute Opening Scene of ‘Alien: Covenant’

The next installment in the Alien franchise comes out this Spring, and legendary director Ridley Scott (who directed the iconic original in 1979) will once again be behind the camera for Alien: Convenant. Starring Michael Fassbender, Danny McBride, Billy Crudup, James Franco, and Katherine Waterson, Covenant is a direct sequel to 2012’s Prometheus and the second prequel in the franchise, taking place before the events of Alien.

On Wednesday, Fox released this four-minute prolouge which introduces the characters for a “Last Supper” before they enter a long cryosleep. When they wake up, they will explore and colonize an uncharted planet that they think could be a new paradise for humans. Since this is an Alien film, they are almost certainly wrong about that.
