All indicators point toward a short wait until the first trailer for Ridley Scott‘s Alien: Covenant hits the Internet. Starting that build up is a first look at one of the new pivotal characters Daniels, played by Katherine Waterston (Fantastic Beasts and where to Find Them). Entertainment Weekly brings us this first production still of a heavily armed Daniels searching for something or someone.
She’s certainly channeling the Ripley tank top look.Here’s the synopsis:
Headed toward a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew members of the colony ship Covenant discover what they believe to be an uncharted paradise, but it is actually a dark, menacing world in which the only inhabitant is the synthetic David (Michael Fassbender), a survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
Director Ridley Scott told EW that Alien: Covenant will answer those nagging Prometheus questions:
Covenant is really going to show you who did it and why.
Keep tuned and we’ll bring you the trailer as soon as it hits the Internet. Alien: Covenant hits theater screens May 19th, 2017.
