With the marketing ramping up for Alien: Covenant's May 19th release date, more and more material from the film continues to be unveiled. Today, we have a a batch of 10 new behind-the-scenes set photos from the filming of the Alien: Covenant official prologue video "The Last Supper". Similar to the "Meet Walter" viral video behind-the-scenes photos we shared over a week ago, these photos were uploaded by the creative team at 3AM, who worked with Luke Scott to bring these extensions of Alien: Covenant to life. These photos offer a more detailed look at the Covenant Bridge set, the cast, their costumes and the props used throughout the video.
It's neat to see that Ridley Scott once again had a rig built for the Covenant Command Bridge, just like the one created for Prometheus. The shape of the set piece also mimics that of the USCSS Prometheus vessel's:
Here's also a look at the storyboards used on-set:
... And of course, more photos of the cast and a wider look at the set interior:

The future of Alien
The Alien franchise is taking a dramatic turn at 20th Century Studios, now owned by Disney. Currently there are two major Alien projects in development - a new Alien TV series by Noah Hawley and a new, stand-alone Alien movie being directed by Fede Alvarez. Both of which will be taking the franchise in a new direction - moving away from the Alien prequel direction Ridley Scott set out to pursue back in 2012.
