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.

At least the latest trailer for Alien: Covenant removes all question as to if we will see a xenomorph. Prometheus had a ton of issues, and one of them was it was an Alien franchise film without really having an Alien as we know it. Yes, the xenomorph known as “the Deacon” showed up at… read more
