ALIEN: COVENANT (2017) FULL MOVIE WATCH ONLINE FREEsequel to the 2012 film Prometheus, the film is the second installment in the Alien prequel series and the sixth installment overall in the Alien film series, as well as the third directed by Scott. The film stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Carmen Ejogo, and Demián Bichir, and follows the crew of a ship that lands on an uncharted planet before making a terrifying discovery.
In a prologue, Peter Weyland speaks with his newly-activated synthetic, who selects the name “David” after looking upon a replica of Michelangelo’s statue of the same name. Weyland tells David that one day they will search for mankind’s creator together.
In 2104, the crew of the colony ship Covenant is bound for a remote planet, Origae-6, with some two-thousand colonists and a thousand embryos on-board and an upgraded synthetic resembling the earlier David which is monitored by Walter. A neutrino shockwave hits the ship; Walter orders the computer to wake the crew from stasis, but the captain is burned to death in his pod. As the crew repairs the damage, they intercept a human radio transmission from a nearby unknown planet. Against the objection of Daniels, who is the terraforming expert, acting captain Oram decides to investigate, as the planet appears to be even better for colonisation.
An expedition team descends to the surface, while Covenant remains in orbit. Karine conducts an ecological survey, while the others track the signal to the crashed Engineer ship, piloted by David and Elizabeth Shaw following the disastrous Prometheus mission. Two security team members, Ledward and Hallett, are inadvertently infected with an alien spore. Karine helps Ledward back to the landing vehicle, but Faris quarantines them inside the med-bay. A Neomorph bursts from Ledward’s back, killing him, then mauls Karine to death. Faris tries to shoot the Neomorph but hits explosives in the weapons locker, accidentally destroying the lander. Outside the lander, another Neomorph bursts from Hallett’s throat.
That night, as the remaining crew members attempt to radio Covenant for help, the Neomorphs attack them. They kill a Neomorph, but Walter loses a hand saving Daniels. David, the sole survivor of the Prometheus mission, rescues the crew. David, for his own purposes, misinforms the crew that upon their arrival the Engineer ship accidentally released its cargo of black liquid, a bioweapon, killing the native population of Engineers. In the ensuing chaos, the ship crashed, killing Shaw. The surviving Neomorph attacks and decapitates Rosenthal, who was separated from the main group. David attempts to communicate with the alien, but is horrified when Oram kills it. At Oram’s demand, David reveals his activities on the planet. Using the black liquid as a catalyst, he created the earliest Neomorphs after experimenting with a parasitic wasp that laid eggs inside its prey; upon being born, the larvae ate the prey from the inside out. David shows Oram a chamber he has used to further experiment upon and develop the eggs, and a facehugger jumps from one and implants Oram with an embryo. Later a Xenomorph—an evolution of the Neomorph—erupts from Oram’s chest, killing him.
