Following the release of an image of silhouetted soldiers in formation and another of Katherine Waterston’s character, Alien: Covenant has dropped another enigmatic simulacrum that invites you to move towards the light. But something tells us the ‘afterlife’ is as much as a euphemism for moving indubitably towards a horrifying death with earth-shattering consequences.
On social media the image have underwrit another string of numbers: 185612082104.
Within it maybe the difference between salvation and damnation.
Alien: Covenant synopsis reads:
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.
Alien: Covenant is slated for cinematic release come May 19th 2017
