Based on the overwhelmingly positive reviews out of TIFF, Arrival is yet another stunning film from director Denis Villenueve, who has consistently impressed critics and audiences since crossing over into the mainstream with 2013’s Prisoners. Villeneuve is currently in production on Blade Runner 2, which hits theaters in 2017 and stars Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford. In a new interview, the director reveals an interesting piece of info about his sequel to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic, and talks about the other major sci-fi project he’d like to tackle.

As of today, we have exactly 365 days to the release of Alien: Covenant, the new Prometheus sequel / Alien prequel from Ridley Scott. To celebrate the occasion, 20th Century Fox has released a new behind-the-scenes video featuring Katherine Waterston’s character, who appears to be enjoying a little hyper-sleep space-nap.

Our first look at Katherine Waterston’s character in Alien: Covenant was a bit shadowy, but the latest photo from the set offers a much better sneak peek at the actress’ new hero — and she’s sporting a very familiar look. Ridley Scott celebrated the end of production on his upcoming Alien prequel by sharing a new image, in which he poses opposite Waterston in what could just as easily be a Calvin Klein ad.

Although Noomi Rapace’s Dr. Elizabeth Shaw was one of the few survivors of Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, the prequel to Alien (and predecessor to the upcoming Alien: Covenant), reports from the production have repeatedly claimed Rapace would not reprise her role for the sequel. Back in January, Scott told the press that Shaw wouldn’t appear in Alien: Covenant, which is set 10 years after the events of Prometheus, when a new crew of doomed astronauts stumble upon a paradise planet whose sole inhabitant is David, Michael Fassbender’s robot character from Prometheus. There had been some talk about Rapace “briefly” reprising her role, but then Scott’s claimed that she would not.

This new set photo from Alien: Covenant isn’t going to blow you away, unless you’re particularly fond of images in which directors do what they do best — you know, direct. But it does give us a blurry, slightly-out-of-focus look at Michael Fassbender, lurking in the background while Ridley Scott calls the shots. And it gives us a new photo to use in articles about Ridley Scott. We all win here.

If the latest rumor regarding Alien: Covenant proves to be true, then you should definitely turn back now because this could be a potentially major spoiler. A new report offers additional details on Katherine Waterston’s role in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus follow-up, in which she plays the commander of a derelict crew — we already knew that, of course, but what we didn’t know is that there just might be something more to Waterston’s part.

The first glimpses from the set of Ridley Scott’s Prometheus sequel (and Alien prequel) Alien: Covenant keep coming quicker, like drips of acid from the gaping maw of a xenomorph hiding in a builkhead. We already saw a picture of the crew uniforms (along with a patch sporting the name of infamous Alien corporation, Weyland-Yutani), plus a few other scattered photos of abject and unspeakable horror. Hey, it’s an Alien movie. That comes with the territory.

Ridley Scott is currently filming Alien: Covenant in Australia, and while we have yet to see the first official image from the upcoming Prometheus sequel, Michael Fassbender has been offering up a few ideas of what we can expect — mostly in terms of production design, which he’s compared to Scott’s sci-fi masterpiece Blade Runner. But some new set photos have popped up online to give us our first real look at Covenant, and they are somewhat unnerving.
