Watch A Five Minute Preview Of "Alien: Covenant"

After it made its debut alongside FX's Legion, the brand new Alien: Covenant prologue has been released, introducing the crew of the Covenant spaceship and establishing a tone very much in keeping with the original Alien.

The scene has the crew getting together to enjoy one final meal (and some booze) before entering cryosleep ... now doesn't that remind you of a certain scene in a little movie called Alien? Yup. It's being directly by Ridley Scott's son, Luke Scott. COVENANT hits theaters everywhere on May 19, 2017. A new trailer and cast photo have just been released, revealing James Franco's character and how the new film will pay homage to the original "Alien" film. Now, it would seem that he might be the iconic first alien victim. I can't wait to see where it all goes wrong. Nathaniel Dean and Demian Bichir played the two gay characters for the film. Welcome to the future, where your sexuality does not prevent you from going on terrifying space voyages!

If you saw Prometheus, you probably realize that there's one familiar face in the crowd: Michael Fassbender. The android Walter [played by Fassbender] is also seen rushing to the aid of one of the female crew members, who seems to be choking. We all know disaster is about to strike.

It's about time the Alien series got an openly LGBTQ character.

Connected directly to Ridley Scott's 1979 sci-fi masterpiece, Alien: Covenant is the second installment in the prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus and follows the Covenant crew as they embark on a journey to a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy.

Alien: Covenant follows the crew as they discover "what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, risky world", a synopsis said.
