Ridley Scott's Sci-Fi Film

As I watch this, I realize that Fassbender is playing a different version of the android he did in Prometheus. Trailer was a bit all over the place, but it looks more like a remake of Prometheus.

Ridley Scott's Prometheus Sequel

Set as the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus, Alien: Covenant connects directly to Ridley Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. It begins with the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy. There, the crew discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
