MUTHUR Won’t Save You in This ALIEN: COVENANT Preview

MUTHUR Won’t Save You in This ALIEN: COVENANT Preview

According to Ridley Scott’s original Alien movie, “in space, no one can hear you scream.” But in Alien: Covenant, the ship itself can hear almost anything you have to say and it’s even willing to help you. Of course, when the Xenomorphs are involved, there’s not much that even an advanced artificial intelligence can do to ensure the survival of the crew, but it’s the artificial thought that counts!

20th Century Fox has released a new preview from Alien: Covenant that focuses on Katherine Waterston’s character, Daniels, as she begins to rely on MUTHUR, the Covenant’s A.I. that controls everything on board. Everything from breakfast to questions about cards are fair game for MUTHUR—which is why it’s such a great moment when she falls silent in this video.

The only other character featured prominently in this clip is Danny McBride’s Tennessee, who acts as the pilot of the Covenant. Note that even Tennessee looks terrified when MUTHUR doesn’t respond to a basic command. And for good reason, as it seems that a Xenomorph is running around on the ship. We even see Daniels get some very unwelcome news from MUTHUR as a Xenomorph descends upon her. We don’t know where that scene will happen in the film, but the trailer promises that Daniels “won’t go quietly.”

Although Alien: Covenant is the sequel to Prometheus, that connection is downplayed in this video. It’s definitely got the old school Alien vibe, and we’re eager to see it scare up some thrills when this film hits theaters on Friday, May 19.
