With its expansive sci-fi world, 20th Century Fox has been keen to extend the universe of the Alien franchise beyond just the feature films. Following a prologue (and new trailer) for Alien: Covenant, they’ve now released a new video, which — like the prologue — is directed by Ridley Scott‘s son Luke Scott. This new spot introduces the slicker, smarter, and all-around updated version of Michael Fassbender‘s character named Walter, “the latest synthetic by Weyland-Yutani.”
After portraying David in the last film, this new version is “created to serve” with “intelligence powered by AMD, Ryzen and Radeon.” Along with a viral site, the new machine is described as the “world’s most advanced synthetic companion, designed to help you achieve a better human experience. Each model is individually calibrated to serve its owner’s unique set of needs and preferences.”
While the video features Fassbender’s character, Alien: Covenant also stars Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, and Benjamin Rigby.
Check out the video below.
Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with ALIEN: COVENANT, a new chapter in his groundbreaking ALIEN franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.
Alien Covenant opens on May 19.
