    The Crossing, an official prologue short to Alien: Covenant, reveals what happened to crew members Dr. Elizabeth Shaw and the synthetic David after the events of Prometheus. Set aboard an abandoned Engineer vessel, Dr. Shaw repairs David as they continue their search for humanity’s creators.

    Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with ALIEN: COVENANT, a new chapter in his groundbreaking ALIEN franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.

    I can't help but feel that the ending scene is a metaphor for Ridley's relationship with the fans. He stands above as the fan cheer in hope of a good Alien movie and then Ridley destroys all there hope.

    I hate it so much that they killed off the Engineers. Instead of learning more about the intriguing elements from Prometheus, they are killed off. Covenant was disappointing and seeing the lackluster box-office results, I think this might be the end to this Prequel Alien series. Too bad, I liked the idea of the Engineers.

    I keep playing it over and over, it is the one piece that truly is a view beyond prometheus and one where we see our surviving heroine alive and well. One where we see David showing compassion and care. This along with the melancholic alien tune, make it precious to me.

    this should have been left in the film along with the 20 mins they cut and then it would have improved it a lot if they are the engineers in this film they seem to only have one city and all wave moronically as the ship arrives they dont even look the same i seriously hope that isnt the end of them otherwise thats just pathetic imo

    Forrest Penrod 16 days ago

    They made the movie about the origins of the Xenomorphs because the fans wouldn't stop complaining and hating on Prometheus. THIS is what happens. Instead of a film exploring what made Prometheus so cool and fascinating we get a really strange mix of movies and the Engineers seem to get nixed in the process.

    This is better than the movie itself as it shows shaw making the effort to obtain answers...there was lots of talking in the beginning, the plot regarding the engineers should have developed a bit more.

    Ok 1) why would David destroy them (the creators/engineers)?

    2) where did he get the 'black goo' or not goo but the black pathogenic stuff? And did he weaponize it somehow? Isn't it suppose to infect and then create an alien/xenomorph species from/through the host?

  • Kelly Pfeiffer
    Kelly Pfeiffer 21 day ago

    Ridley should have used Styx's Come Sail Away when Tennessee was retracting the Space Sails in the beginning because Tennessee was a big fan of 20th Century pop music and then later at the end of the movie Tennessee could ask Walter when being put back into hyper sleep for Walter to play the same song he played earlier and David wouldn't know what song Walter had played. More entertaining and more exacting than, "help build our house" which is easily deniable and like Guardian of the Galaxy, it makes the use of modern music entertaining and helps out a plot point in the film.

  • Jaron Alexander
    Jaron Alexander 24 days ago

    Smh this is actually the film Ridley wanted to make and what we were expecting after Prometheus. Continuing Shaw and David's journey and exploring the Engineers more but the studio higher ups made him make the generic jump scare mediocrity that is Alien Covenant instead of letting a great artist continue with his vision. So don't lose faith in Ridley just yet guys, he still got the juice!

    I really enjoyed the movie as an alien fan but did not like what they did with Shaw's character. It was a disservice, to say the least. I am hoping there will be an another movie after covenant that shows more to what happened when David and Shaw came to the planet. It would be a cool prologue...sort of like what Peter Jackson did with LOTR the return of the king.

  • Dustie1984
    Dustie1984 26 days ago

    If you look at David here he seems rather honest in his caring of Shaw. Something must have happened during the time when Shaw was in sleep and David "learned of their ways" that changed him. Did he find some knowledge on the ship that overwhelmed him? Did something go wrong during the flight? Why was did the ship crash if he was able to get to the planet just fine and dock above the city?...

  • AnthonyYouTubeFan
    AnthonyYouTubeFan 27 days ago

    Honestly, this prologue was more satisfying, inspiring, and informative than the entire 2 hours plus of ALIEN: COVENANT. The movie was basically a pretty stop gap between PROMETHEUS and ALIEN: AWAKENING. The reviews are going to have to be STELLAR for the next one, for me to enter a theater to see this stuff again after this disappointment.

    Noomi had more chemistry with Fassbender in this prologue than any of the actors in Covenant did with each other, including Fassbender with himself. Writing her out of Covenant was a huge mistake. The new female lead was totally unlikable, uncharismatic and unattractive in both this and Fantastic Beasts. And she didn't show off any particularly exceptional acting skills to make up for any of that. Noomi is a real actress who shows real emotion on the screen.

  • Lord H4773Rthe2nd
    Lord H4773Rthe2nd 1 month ago

    I just realized David's voice sounds the way way it does in Alien: Covenant because he had his head ripped off by the Engineer. Even though Elizabeth did her best to repair him, he still has a certain raspiness, mechanical, and "evil" quality to his voice. Same as Ash's voice after his head was knocked off in Alien. Makes him much more sinister.

  • Loman O'Neill
    Loman O'Neill 1 month ago

    this should have played while david describes this to walter instead of just hearing him say it,i really hope that planet was just one of many the engineers have colonised or that the race their is another creation of theres or even a different faction or something how could there be such a small population with so little technology otherwise? and also the ship david and sahw are on is meannt to be over 2000 years old but yet the docking device on this planet is still designed to fit it?! so maybe they were cheering etc beacause they though that their "gods" had come back,the engineer in prometheus is much taller and also has fully black eyes and transluscent white skin which these humanoids dont appear to share and is clearly biomechanical in some ways and seems to be literally connected in to his suit

    We were all hoping that the movie (Alien Covenant) would be end up more like this short film depicted, as compared to the official trailer.

    However... having recently watched Alien Covenant... I was so satisfied. Ridley Scott does not dissapoint. If you haven't watched it, and want more of that 'Prometheus feeling', the movie will do just that.
