Fans of the Alien franchise are starting to come around on Alien: Covenant, director Ridley Scott's follow-up to Alien prequel, Prometheus. The first footage from the film impressed our own Brandon Davis, and the buzz has been overwhelmingly positive thus far. Now we are just waiting on the official Alien: Covenant trailer to drop.
While fans wait, they've been teased with Alien: Covenant imagery over social media, and today we have another teaser photo to share. Take a look:
The photo is of a myterious hallway, with a design aesthetic that suggests the presence of the Xenomorphs or their Engineer creators.
The photo comes with the caption, "185612082104" continuing a numbers game that we also saw with a different teaser photo, released yesterday:
This teaser photo has a much different aesthetic; it seems to depict hybernation or stasis pods - presumably aboard the titular spaceship Covenant. We know from early plot details that Covenant touches down on a remote planet the crew takes for a habital new paradise - only to learn that Prometheus survivor David (and the alien Xenomorphs) have already taken up residence on that world.
All that's left now is or the trailer to drop!
