Three More 'Alien: Covenant' Photos Released After Trailer Premiere

Releasing new photos from Alien: Covenant last week was part of Fox's game to build up toward the first trailer. But although the trailer was finally ready for Christmas, Fox isn't done releasing new images, as it wound down the recent marketing blitz with three fresh pictures.

Instead of posting them on the Alien Anthology Twitter page with coded numbered sequences, they were just placed online. The first shows Katherine Waterston's Daniels and an unidentified character in the open of the new planet they are trying to colonize, although the planet's current inhabitants have obviously made their presence known by this point.

The first signs in the trailer that something was horribly wrong came when a Covenant crew member was locked in with an infected crew mate, and another one couldn't and wouldn't let her out. This image shows Carmen Ejogo and Amy Seimetz with that doomed and already ailing crewman before the worst happens.

This last image isn't related to what was seen in the trailer, if only because Ridley Scott is in the shot. But he is seen directing Empire's Jussie Smollet, who wasn't glimpsed at in the teaser.

After all these presents before, during and after Christmas, perhaps the Alien: Covenant team will actually take a real holiday for several weeks. As much as they have teased so far, it barely gave away anything at all, which is likely how Scott and Fox want to keep it even when the next batch of photos and teasers hit.

They can keep playing these games in teasing Alien: Covenant, right up until they have to show the whole thing on May 19, 2017.
