Incredible! IMDb please reference it well
15 July 2019 | by tchevrierdechoudensSee all my reviews

This short video is incredible. I recommend it for the ones who wants to know more about what happened between Dr Shaw and David.

In my opinion this is the best thing to come out of Covenant with the Prologue video. You can tell Fassbender really immersed himself into the speech and really embodied the role of David... Just like he did in Prometheus and Covenant.

I thought the drawings were extremely interesting and really brought another dimension to the Alien franchise. There is a Darwinist vibe to the whole thing which makes things a lot more mature and epic.

Thanks Luke Scott for another well done video! Hope to see more of his work attached to Alien and Blade Runner.

PS: please reference the video well. Thanks
