‘Alien: Covenant’ Prologue Video Shows Elizabeth’s Journey After ‘Prometheus’
“Alien: Covenant” finally provides details of the “Prometheus” aftermath.
With “Alien: Covenant” being the next mission after “Prometheus,” many were wondering when the first film’s story would be further explored. In the recent prologue video above, we get those supplemental details of the journey to the Engineer home world by David and Elizabeth. While there is still much to be desired from the story, we do get to see how they made the journey and the moment when they reach their destination. Unfortunately their arrival is where things end for this prologue.
Hopefully there is a bit more to the “Prometheus” story in “Alien: Covenant.” This new journey is definitely exciting but without a strong tie in to previous events, we could be reliving a lot of the same action without that strong, contextual foundation. “Prometheus” left us wanting more and the prologue video leads me to believe that the connection to “Alien: Covenant” will be present throughout the film more than the first trailer and the previous prologue footage led us to believe.
“Alien: Covenant” is just around the corner with a release date of May 19, 2017.
