The film will see the Covenant making planetfall on a seemingly idyllic world where they find homicidal android David — played by
Tom Hiddleston Michael Fassbender — and a shocking secret at the center of the paradise world. It will also form the first (or second) part of trilogy connecting director Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus with the original Alien.
Also featuring Billy Crudup, Danny McBride and Jussie Smollett, the film is scheduled for release on August 4, 2017.
