During tonight’s episode of Legion on FX, Fox unveilved a prologue to Alien: Covenant, fittingly titled, “Last Supper.”
The short doesn’t give us any plot details, but it does give us a chance to see the personalities of the crew and get a sense of their working-class comradery (except for James Franco’s mysterious character, who disappears before the fun begins.) “Last Supper” also gives us a taste of the film’s humor, something that’s been missing from the franchise since the crew of the Nostromo had their own last supper in the original film. In fact, the end of this short directly calls back on that infamous dinner scene in Alien, but with a twist.
Hopefully we’ll see some more footage from Alien: Covenant next week with the release of Logan.
Find out what happens to the crew of the Covenant on May 19th, 2017.
