Prometheus 2 (Alien Covenant) Plot Emerges
Set for a August 2017 release, the long awaited sequel to one of 2012’s most remembered prequels ‘Prometheus‘ has a story and some new facts that have begun to emerge. The newest working title that was announced late last year ‘Alien Covenant‘ looks to be staying the course while infamous sci-fi director Ridley Scott has currently started shooting in Australia. Add to that an emerging plot and we’ve got something to look forward to.
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.
So far it looks like the only returning actor from the original film will be Michael Fassbender’s “David” who was a little more of a bad bot then good bot from the first film depending on your point of view.
Fassbender recently teased to the inquirer that fans of the franchise will get an iconic ‘Alien’ moment in the long awaited sequel.
There are going to be great sets and aliens coming out of people. It's amazing to watch Ridley work. I try to soak up as much knowledge as I can from him, because having worked on this kind of films a few times and having seen how many moving parts there are, how many people work on the set and how many departments need attention and the language, he's an absolute master.
Alien Covenant which also boasts a new cast of stars: Danny McBride, Katherine Waterston, Demián Bichir, Jussie Smollett, Amy Seimetz, Callie Hernandez and Carmen Ejogo is due to hit theaters August 4th, 2017. We’re bursting with anticipation.
