Leonardo da Vinci’s “The Last Supper” is one of the most recognisable paintings in the world. Depicting the last time Jesus Christ would meet with his disciples at the Covent of Santa Maria before one of them betrays him. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the first image from ‘Alien: Covenant’ looks like that painting, and the first clip, airing during last night’s episode of Legion is a prologue called “The Last Supper”.
The film has once again Director Ridley Scott at the helm. The film takes place after Prometheus, but some time before the first Alien. The crew of the Covenant is on their way to start the first ever human colony on another planet. Captain (James Franco) has gone to sleep sick, and the crew has one last party before cryosleep. Things are going well until one of them starts choking. The clip above is only a tease, watch the full prologue here
