A new look at the Prometheus sequel and Alien prequel sees the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them actress in the throes of her outer space slumber. Scheduled for theaters on Aug. 4, 2017, the film sees Waterston as an Ellen Ripley-esque character named Daniels, who’s aboard the colony ship Covenant. The crew discovers a mysterious planet they believe to be an uncharted utopia. Since it’s an Alien movie, we know it’ll prove to be anything but.

Alien: Covenant wrapped filming in July with a cast including Demián Bichir, Jussie Smollett, Billy Crudup, Carmen Ejogo, and Danny McBride. Michael Fassbender also reprises his role from Prometheus as the synthetic David, whom the Covenant crew discovers on the planet.
“It’s much scarier than Prometheus, but it’s got the same sort of scope of Prometheus,” Fassbender previously said. “It’s kind of got more of thriller, imminent disaster feel that Alien had, so it’s kind of a beautiful meeting of both of those films.”
