USA | 122 min | R | DCP | Dir. Ridley Scott Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS -- and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world -- whose sole inhabitant is the "synthetic" David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition. "This movie may be a convulsively entertaining throwback to Scott's glory days, but to look upon Fassbender, with his icy and seductive post-human gaze, is to behold this franchise's future." - Justin Chang (Los Angeles Times) This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
