While we currently don’t know a lot of details about the plot of the movie, it does look like Danny McBride will be playing a crew member of the colony ship Covenant. I wonder if his character will make it out alive of this one. We also recently found out that Noomi Rapace will reprise the role of Elizabeth Shaw in the follow-up. Here’s the synopsis:

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

Directed by Ridley Scott, Alien: Covenant also stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Demian Bichir, Jussie Smollett, Carmen Ejogo and Billy Crudup. The movie opens in theaters on October 6, 2017. Are you excited for the movie?
