Following FOX Studios revealing a first look at James Franco in the Alien: Covenant cast photo (see below), now a new clip has been released featuring the first footage of James Franco.
The five-minuteÂ Alien: Coveant clip, "Last Supper Prologue," features the crew getting ready to go into cryo sleep where it's revealed James Franco is playing the Captain. The crew have a bit of a celebration with Michael Fassbender's David lending a hand, andÂ Katherine Waterston offers some parting words of inspiration.
"Alien: Covenant" has a May 19, 2017 release and is directed by Ridley Scott starring Michael Fassbender,Â Katherine Waterston,Â Noomi Rapace, Danny McBride, DemiĂˇn Bichir, Jussie Smollett, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz and Callie Hernandez.
Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS â€” and connects directly to Scottâ€™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 â€” whose sole inhabitant is the â€śsyntheticâ€ť David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
