Exclusive New look At Alien: Covenant

A new issue of Empire arrives in all good and evil newsagents from today, and leading the pack of exclusive first looks at the biggest movies os Alien: Covenant, Ridley Scott’s sci-fi prequel-sequel, which leads up this month’s Preview section. Here’s a sneak peek of that exclusive new image, which sees the new crew of the Covenant setting foot on a verdant new planet. Take a look below, and click to embiggen.

As the new Empire explains, 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.

“What’s great about this story is the characters are so different,” says the film's returning star, Michael Fassbender. “They’re not just filling out a spaceship, their characters have been thought about. It harks back to those really cool characters in the original Alien, where there are great relationships going on outside of the [alien].”

This is just a preview, of course – for more on Alien: Covenant and a galactic tonne of other movie exclusives – be sure to pick up a copy of Empire, on sale in all good and evil newsagents now. Want to get your copy days before anyone else? Subscribe to Empire here.
