Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with Alien: Covenant, a new chapter in his groundbreaking Alien franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.
When first announced, the book's title was given as Alien: Covenant: The Art of the Film — in line with Prometheus: The Art of the Film, the similar book released for the preceding movie. However, this was changed before release.
