It’s director’s Ridley Scott’s birthday today (happy 79th Ridley!) and in celebration, it seems 20th Century Fox has Tweeted a new image from the set of Alien: Covenant.
The picture shows Scott striking a very director-like pose in front of the what looks like the infamous “Space Jokey” chair seen in Alien and Prometheus (both films were directed by Scott). This is the second promotional image released for the film in a week, as last week saw the teaser poster unveiled. You can see new the image below.
The Internet Movie Database describes the film’s plot as:
The crew of the colony ship Covenant discover what they think is an uncharted paradise, but it is actually a dark, dangerous world, whose sole inhabitant is the synthetic David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
Directed by Ridley Scott and written by Michael Green, John Logan and Jack Paglen, Alien:Covenant is the film that will bridge 2012’s Prometheus to the rest of the Alien franchise. Michael Fassbender is returning as the android David, alongside Katherine Waterson, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Noomi Rapace, and Guy Pearce. The film is now set to be released on May 19, 2017.
