We have an update on Ridley Scott's Alien Covenant that will no doubt spark some discussion. The most striking images are some set photos that include what look like Pompeii-esque mummified copses and soldiers.
Also included is a behind-the-scenes photo taken of actress Katherine Waterston's character, Daniels. Fox released it on social media.
It begins with the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy. There, the crew discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is [Continued ...] »
Remember those “old-school” Alien: Covenant sets that Michael Fassbender was gushing about just recently; the same ones that were likened to Star Wars, Blade Runner and other genre greats?
