20th Century Fox has released the third short as part of their “Alien Day” celebrations, this one focusing on the events that took place directly after “Prometheus”.
The Crossing, an official prologue short to Alien: Covenant, reveals what happened to crew members Dr. Elizabeth Shaw and the synthetic David after the events of Prometheus. Set aboard an abandoned Engineer vessel, Dr. Shaw repairs David as they continue their search for humanity’s creators.
The short was directed by Luke Scott, the son of Ridley Scott. Hopefully that’s not all the footage we’ll see of Noomi Rapace’s Dr. Elizabeth Shaw.
“Alien: Covenant” hits theatres on May 19th.
