Watch the Ensemble Cast of ALIEN: COVENANT Together in One Scene (Presumably Before They're All Killed Off Later)

This may be the truest form of a teaser I've seen in a long while. From director Ridley Scott's ALIEN: COVENANT, this clip titled Last Supper introduces the ensemble cast (including Jussie Smollett, Billy Crudup, James Franco, Danny McBride, Carmen Ejogo, Michael Fassbender, and Demián Bichir) and leads us to believe that something scary will likely happen. Spoiler alert: nothing does. In fact, you can almost hear the clip laughing at you. And what's more disappointing is that it rips off a scene from the original film, in which something hella scary does actually happen.

So, I don't know what to make of this. But I am going to try to remain hyped, mostly because—unlike many others—I actually liked the last Alien film and want to see where Scott goes with this. Here's the synopsis:

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.

Watch the clip:

ALIEN: COVENANT opens in theaters May 19.
