Alien: Covenant - Last Supper Prologue Clip Released

20th Century Fox

And he's doing just that with Alien: Covenant, which will be released on May 19th.

Turns out this lush alien world isn't actually the end destination for the Covenant, either, which has taken a detour in order to answer a "distress" signal - such is the Alien way. And Danny McBride looks to be coming with the comic relief.

In the original, the company knew about the xenomorph species on LV-426 and wanted it for themselves, so they sent the Nostromo under the cover of other orders. And I'm glad an entire five-minute scene from the film hasn't been spoiled months before the movie opens.

20th Century Fox has released an extended prologue for Alien: Covenant that teases director Ridley Scott's Prometheus follow-up. An nearly five-minute long prologue aired last night before FX's Marvel show Legion, showing the crew enjoying one final night together before the enter cryosleep and being their colonization mission.

USA 'not in Iraq to seize anybody's oil': Defence Secretary Mattis
Defense Secretary James Mattis arrived in Iraq Monday on an unannounced visit that seemed aimed to reassure Iraqi allies. Secretary Mattis praised the Iraqis' hard-won gains against ISIS, and the leaders discussed operations to liberate Mosul.

Meet the crew for their last supper below. Now, Empire has released a new photo showing the crew as they disembark onto a lush new planet... though not the one they had meant to go to. They're not saying what they'll be showing during the episode, just that there will be some kind of "exclusive ALIEN: COVENANT debut".

The short finds the cast in a setting that might be familiar to Alien fans - a group dinner scene.

But we know it's not going to be all fun and games from here.

Franco is joined by Michael Fassbender, who will likely reprise his role from the "Alien" 2012 prequel, "Prometheus" - the synthetic David, who was the only survivor of the ill-fated expedition. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.
