He responds, “How do you mean?”

(Possible spoilers: We should note that while Crudup plays the Captain in this trailer, it was initially reported that James Franco would be playing a character named Branson, the husband of Daniels and the captain of the Covenant. Of course, we also suspect due to his late-in-the-game casting that Franco doesn’t have a huge role in this film, so read from that what you will.)

The Covenant crew goes in search of whoever sent the distress signal that brought them to this planet.

Daniels says “We don’t know what the fucks out there…” Sounds like she might be the smartest person on this ship, aside from the highly advanced android.

The crew comes across an alien ship. This is very likely the alien ship that David and Elizabeth Shaw used to escape the planet filled with biological weapons. So would this make this planet the world where the Engineers were born? Is this the origin of all life on Earth?

Remember when you had the problem with those two scientists in Prometheus investigating the alien snake-like creature? Well, why is the Captain not running but instead leaning in over this horrific alien egg as it peels open?

An alien face hugger launches out of the egg.

We learned from the footage presentation that Seimetz’s character has been making repeated attempts to contact another group on the surface, which is heading back to the shuttle with their own sick crew member in tow.

They arrive just in time to see the shuttle blow up, which we see here.

A mysterious hooded figure appears from the background. He doesn’t look like one of the huge Engineers. I guess this is David. Note, he is carrying a gun.

A crew member shoots at something inside the dropship, but we don’t know who or what.

Can you see what she is shooting at? Whatever it is caused the explosion we saw in the previous shot.

Notice the figure in the doorway of the ship. Who is this?

A somber-looking Danny McBride waits in a doorway on the Covenant.

He is ready to hand Daniels a big gun as she runs through the ship.

And he follows her to take action.

In space, no one can hear you scream.

And then the trailer ends with a shower scene?

But not just a shower scene, but a shower sex scene.

And not just a shower sex scene, but a shower sex scene which will be horrifically interrupted by a xenomorph.

We get a tiny glimpse of the alien before…

The alien viciously attacks the man, covering the woman in blood. I guess the water pressure isn’t enough to get that red off.
