Fuel for your nightmares: first look at Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant

Production of Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus sequel, Alien: Covenant is well and truly underway and now there’s a picture to prove it.

While there’s no sign yet of Michael Fassbender (reprising his role as David) or any titular aliens, the picture, via the film’s twitter page, does give a brief glimpse of what’s to come. The image reveals what appears to be a crew badge from the Covenant ship, the film’s namesake, bearing the mark of the Weyland-Yutani Corporation.

Check it out below:

The caption reads “The mission begins. ,”.

Taking place roughly a decade after Prometheus, Alien:Covenant will follow the crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote galaxy they believe to be an uncharted paradise. What they find instead is a dark, dangerous world, solely inhabited by the only survivor of the Prometheus expedition: the “synthetic” David (Fassbender).

Alongside Fassbender, Alien: Covenant stars Danny McBride, Katherine Waterston and Demian Bichir.

The film is the second instalment  in Scott’s prequel trilogy to his seminal sci-fi horror,  Alien.

Alien: Covenant is released in the US on August 4, 2017.
