Fox Releases Alien: Covenant | Prologue: ‘Last Supper’ Short

The film business has woken up from its long winter’s nap with a vengeance this week, and it intends to keep the rest of us awake too.  Tonight’s bedtime story comes courtesy of 20th Century Fox, an official prologue to Alien: Covenant. The ‘Last Supper’ short introduces the crew of the mission as they gather for a final meal before entering cryosleep. Set aboard the Covenant, a colonization ship on its way to a remote planet to form a new human settlement, the main crew (all couples) and their android, Walter, enjoy their final meal together before cryosleep.

 

Conceived by Ridley Scott and 3AM, directed by Luke Scott, and produced by RSA Films.

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with ALIEN: COVENANT, a new chapter in his groundbreaking ALIEN franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.
