Yesterday, we overloaded you with 6 (6!) new teaser trailers for Ridley Scott’s impending Alien-prequel/Prometheus-sequel, Alien: Covenant. And while there was plenty of imagery we’d seen before, there was something else hiding in the rapid-fire clips of intergalactic terror in Blessed: Yet another major spoiler.
We’d previously been introduced to the crew of the spaceship Covenant in the Last Supper featurette: A jovial group of about a dozen scientists with a few military dudes thrown in for good measure. What we didn’t know until yesterday was the crew’s cargo: Thousands colonists in cryo-sleep, stacked like luggage [Featured Image]. Check them out in the trailer below.
