Micheal Fassbender, the star in “Prometheus” and “Assassin’s Creed” will showcase his acting chops yet again in the Prometheus prequel “Alien: Covenant”. He’ll star alongside Katherine Waterstone, Billy Crudup and Danny McBride.

Connecting directly to Ridley Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction (Alien), “Alien: Covenant” begins with the colony ship Covenant which is bound for a remote planet in a far region of the galaxy. Upon reaching the planet, the crew discovers “synthetic” David, the sole survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
