Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant is the sequel to his 2012 film Prometheus and the second installment in the director’s planned Alien prequel movie trilogy. Covenant picks up ten years after the events of its predecessor, as a new crew of human space explorers make their way to the Engineers’ home world: a place believed to have once been a paradise, but which has now become a planet of darkness and death where Prometheus expedition survivor – and android – David (Michael Fassbender) is seemingly the only individual still alive on the planet. Katherine Waterston (Steve Jobs), Carmen Ejogo (Selma), Danny McBride (This Is the End), and Demián Bichir (The Hateful Eight) are among the actors playing the Covenant’s human crew in the film.

Leaked photos from the Covenant set have already revealed what much of the Engineers’ planet is believed to look like in the film; namely, a wasteland that resembles the remains of Pompeii, complete with the outlines of humanoid figurines encased in petrified stone casings. Now, 20th Century Fox has revealed an official first look at Scott’s next sci-fi movie, via a production image released through the Alien Anthology Twitter account. The photo shows Waterston as Covenant‘s protagonist, a character who is simply referred to here as “Daniels”.

You can check out that Alien: Covenant production image featuring Waterston, below.

The actual Covenant spaceship’s interior design, which is presumably what is depicted above, is in keeping with the production design of previous installments in the Alien/Prometheus series. However, Alien: Covenant‘s Oscar-winning costume designer Janty Yates (a longtime Ridley Scott collaborator) has indicated that the passage of time between Prometheus and Covenant will, in fact, be reflected in such elements as the spacesuits worn by the Covenant’s space explorers. Scott’s Prometheus sequel should further bridge the gap between the visual design of Prometheus and his original Alien, at the same time that it incorporates more well-known elements of the larger Alien franchise’s mythology (including, for example, the Weyland-Yutani Corporation, which was formed in the aftermath of events in Prometheus).

Waterston, for her part, has adapted a look here that brings to mind classic Alien heroine Ellen Ripley’s (Sigourney Weaver) appearance, as well as that of Prometheus‘ Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace), to a lesser degree. It remains to be seen if “Daniels” emerges as a memorable protagonist in her own right or a Ripley re-tread, though. Similarly, Alien: Covenant has to prove itself to be a worthwhile chapter in the larger Alien film saga and not an uninspired recycling of elements from the previous Alien films, as some fans are concerned it’s going to be after Scott’s divisive Prometheus.

As it were, Waterston herself is a star on the rise thanks to her supporting roles in such films as Steve Jobs and Inherent Vice, while she will costar in the Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them later this year, too. For that reason, her being onboard for Convent is an encouraging sign, if nothing else.

Alien: Covenant opens in U.S. theaters on August 4th, 2017.
