20th Century Fox unveiled a new short today that serves as a second prologue to "Alien: Covenant." Called "The Crossing," it shows what happened to the android David (Michael Fassbender) and Dr. Elizabeth Shaw (Katherine Waterston) after the Prometheus mission took its horrifying turn. At less than three-minutes-long, the prologue doesn't reveal all, but it does show Dr. Shaw healing David, and the duo heading to (and possibly arriving at) the Engineer's homeworld.
"Alien: Covenant" will pick up after the events of both "Prometheus" and "The Crossing" as a different colony ship, Covenant, travels to the far side of the galaxy. Looking for a remote planet, they'll end up on what seems to be an uncharted paradise but actually turns out to be a place more like hell. Fassbender and Waterston return, and the film also stars Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, and Benjamin Rigby.
