Whetting audience appetites even further for Ridley Scott’s highly anticipated feature Alien: Covenant (20th Century Fox), this short directed by Luke Scott serves as a prologue to that film. Titled Prologue: Last Supper, the short is an original story conceived by Ridley Scott and agency 3AM, produced by RSA Films and starring performers in the theatrical movie’s A-list cast (which includes Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, James Franco, Danny McBride and Billy Crudup).

Set aboard the Covenant, a colonization ship on its way to a remote planet to form a new human settlement, the prologue has the crew gathering for a final meal before entering cryosleep. The original online short is part of the marketing campaign for Alien: Covenant.
