The film follows the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paraidse, but is actually a dark, dangerous world – whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition. It is a sequel to Prometheus and is part of a conceived trilogy that will link as prequels to 1979’s Alien.
Waterston was most recently seen in theaters opposite Michael Fassbender, who will return in Covenant in the role of David, in the film Steve Jobs. She will next appear in the Harry Potter-universe film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
