Watch the prologue for Alien: Covenant now

The prologue from Alien: Covenant has been unveiled, click below to watch it. 

Alien: Covenant stars Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace, who return from Prometheus. They are joined by a newly cast Danny McBride, Katherine Waterston, Demián Bichir, Jussie Smollett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez, Billy Crudup, James Franco, Alexander England and Benjamin Rigby. 

Earlier this year the movie saw its release date brought forward. The movie was originally due to be released on August 4th next year, but has now seen its release date brought forward to May 19th in 2017. 

It is the follow-up to Prometheus and picks up after the events on that movie. In this film we follow the crew of the colony ship Covenant who find what they believe to be an uncharted paradise in a remote galaxy. Instead what the crew discover is a dark, dangerous world, whose sole inhabitant is the synthetic David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

The clip is the movie's prologue and features the crew bonding and partying as they prepare for their mission, a mission we all know is going to have uninvited guests. 

A further sequel to Alien, this time directed by District 9's Neill Blomkamp, was in pre-production last year and was set to shoot in 2017, but has now been shelved due to Scott's plans.
