A New Clip Bridges the Gap Between Prometheus and Alien: Covenant

April 27, 2017
It's a sequel to the prequel, but a prequel to the prequel's sequel. Everybody clear?

This latest bit of Alien: Covenant marketing is effectively a little self-contained short film, telling us what happened to archeologist Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and the android David (Michael Fassbender), reduced to an Orpheus-like oracular head, after the events of Prometheus.

Which, really, we could probably have parsed out for ourselves, but it’s a cool bit of business nonetheless. Will this stuff form part of the actual Alien: Covenant movie? We’ll find out on May 11, when the film hits Australian cinemas.

    Prometheus was a dud. Sequels run out of steam but then they dream up the idea of…prequels. Hollywood just leave it alone, please. Stop trying to milk the punters of their hard earned.
