The official Twitter account for Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant has released new images from the upcoming sequel to Prometheus (2012). Images include a look at Michael Fassbender's David and Noomi Rapace's Elizabeth Shaw. We also see a glimpse of bloody footsteps and a hatched Xenomorph egg. Check out the images below:

Directed by Ridley Scott, Alien: Covenant stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Noomi Rapace, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Jussie Smollett, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz and Callie Hernandez.


Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS — and connects directly to Scott's 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the "synthetic" David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

Alien: Covenant is set to release in theaters on May 19, 2017.
