In just a couple of months, audiences will return to the world of Alien once again. Covenant, part two of Ridley Scott's Alien prequel trilogy, will show the second interaction between humans and the aliens.
After a five minute prologue was released online this week, a new image was unveiled on Thursday morning.
The new image is one of the brighter photos we've seen from the film so far. It shows the crew getting off the Covenant, and looking to explore this bright new world.
The photo debuted on Empire, and the magazine also added a little more information regarding the plot of the film - and why the crew is on the planet in the first place.
This planet is not their original destination: they have detoured to answer a distress call. And given this franchise, it’s a good guess that “distress” will soon be too mild a description.
For a full look at the new image, head to the gallery below!
