by Rob Caprilozzi

As the release of Alien: Covenant draws closer, more and more promotional material for the film is being released. The latest comes in the form of a website,

The website introduces us to a new android aboard the Covenant, “Walter.” Played by Michael Fassbender, “Walter” is considered to be the world’s most advanced synthetic companion. The android has even been engineered to understand and satisfy his owners every want.

Fassbender will also pull double duty in Alien: Covenant. In addition to being “Walter,” the award-winning actor will also reprise the role of “David” from the 2012 film, Prometheus. The last we saw, that character was attempting to find a way to flee the planet with “Elizabeth Shaw” (Naomi Rapace).

Ridley Scott returns to the Alien universe he created with Alien: Covenant. He is joined by a cast consisting of Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, James Franco, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, Jussie Smollett, Amy Seimetz, Callie Hernandez and Benjamin Rigby.

Alien: Covenant is set to debut in theaters May 19, 2017. Keep it locked on Horror News Network for more updates on the film.
