Daniels (Waterston) is a lead explorer on the colony ship Covenant. The ship is headed toward a planet believed to be some sort of paradise but is in fact very dangerous. When arriving they find David (Michael Fassbender), a synthetic survivor of the USCSS Prometheus expedition.

Waterston (Boardwalk Empire) and Fassbender (Steve Jobs) will be joined by Danny McBride (Vice Principals), Demián Bichir (The Hateful Eight), Jussie Smollett (Empire), Amy Seimetz (The Girlfriend Experience), Carmen Ejogo (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), Callie Hernandez (The Woods), and Billy Crudup (Watchmen).

Alien Covenant is set to hit theaters on August 4, 2017.

Any thoughts on the tweet’s caption, “Nowhere to run,”?
