Alien Covenant

I would like to watch the American science-fiction horror film Alien Covenant which is out in cinemas. It is directed by Ridley Scott and written by John Logan and Dante Harper, with a story by Michael Green and Jack Paglen. It is A sequel to the 2012 film Prometheus, the film is the second installment in the Alien prequel series and the sixth installment overall in the Alien film series. The film stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride and Demián Bichir.

In 2104 the crew of the colony ship Covenant is bound for a remote planet Origae-6 with two thousand colonists and a thousand embryos aboard. While en route to their destination, an energy surge damages the ship, killing its captain and waking the crew. As they repair the ship, the crew intercept a radio transmission from a nearby planet and decide to investigate as the transmission is human in origin but the planet is supposedly lifeless. Crew members Waters, Faris and Karine descend to the surface with a contingent of security personnel. Karine sets up an ecological survey station while the others track down the source of the signal. They discover it originates from an Engineer ship piloted by Elizabeth Shaw following the disastrous Prometheus mission. Two of the security team members are accidentally infected with an alien spore. The security team are then killed by a neomorph—a forerunner to the xenomorph—as they burst from their backs, and Karine and Faris are killed fighting the Neomorph.

The crew find the android David, the sole survivor of the ill-fated Prometheus mission as they radio Covenant for help. On the surface, a neomorph attacks a settler who has become separated from the main group and is killed by Covenant’s first mate Oram, who witnesses David trying to tame the alien. David shows Oram a chamber he has been using to incubate facehuggers.

The crew gradually uncover David’s sinister agenda and discover that David has been using the “black goo”, recovered during the Prometheus mission on local fauna for sinister purposes. The earliest xenomorphs came about after David experimented with a parasitic wasp that laid its eggs inside its prey; upon being born, the larvae ate the prey from the inside out. Elizabeth Shaw was also implanted with a facehugger, during Prometheus.

So the crew members attempt to evacuate. However They are attacked by adult protomorphs as Covenant arrives and Crew member Lope is implanted with a protomorph embryo, which has gestated and is now loose aboard Covenant. To make matters worse Walter—the ship’s android who resembles David, also has sinister plans for the crew regarding the Protomorphs…
