Alien: The Crossing bridges the Prometheus gap

What happened between Prometheus and Alien: Covenant? Well, now we know… kind of.

On Wednesday Fox released a promotional prologue video called “The Crossing” that gives us some clues of what happened to Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and David (Michael Fassbender) after the final shots of Prometheus. It seems the odd couple spent 30 years getting to the home of the Engineers, and there was a lot going on in their little ship.

I hate to say it, but… this has gotten me mildly excited for Alien: Covenant again. When will I learn?

I know I’m going to see Covenant, and I know I’m going to walk away disappointed, but dang it, I just like the Alien franchise too much to not keep getting sucked in.

Dang you, Ridley Scott. You just keep getting to me.

Anyway, watch the video. It alone makes Prometheus slightly better.
