Not in view of what it says, but rather as a result of who it forgets. Ridley Scott comes back to the universe he made in Alien with Alien: Covenant, the second part in a prequel set of three that started with Prometheus – and associates straightforwardly to Scott’s 1979 original work of sci-fi. Destined for a remote planet on the most distant side of the cosmic system, the team of the state ship Covenant finds what they believe is an unfamiliar heaven, yet is really a dull, unsafe world – whose sole occupant is the “engineered” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the bound Prometheus campaign.
Clearly any notice of the constantly wonderful Michael Fassbender is refreshing, however shouldn’t something be said about Noomi Rapace’s Elizabeth Shaw? Does her complete oversight from this summation imply that she’s not going to include in the film by any stretch of the imagination? It would absolutely appear that way.
