First Set Pics From Ridley Scott's 'Alien: Covenant'

By Matt O.

Filming is officially underway on director Ridley Scott's Prometheus sequel and Alien prequel Alien: Covenant in Sydney, Australia and several photos from the set have appeared online via the Daily Mail. I love what I am seeing the set pics below and I'm extremely excited about this film. Check out the images below than sound off in the comments section with your thoughts.

In a recent interview with Inquirer, actor Michael Fassbender described the set of Covenant as a "fantastic mixture of high-end technology and primitive elements."

The actor also had this to say about the film:

"The way that I can explain it is the same way that Ridley did Blade Runner. You have this futuristic world where people are eating noodles, because that seems to be the cheaper food and something that will fill you up. But it’s also something that harks back to the past. The weaving of those two things—past and future—together makes for an interesting world that we can aspire to, but also recognize something in it."

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