20th Century Fox has unleashed a new set photo for director Ridley Scott’s Prometheus sequel/Alien prequel, giving us our very first look at Katherine Waterston’s Daniels in the upcoming Alien: Covenant.

The pic was released on the official Alien Movie Facebook page with the caption “Nowhere to run,” and guys, it’s giving me all the Ripley feels what with her wearing a tank top and her hair cropped short. Oh, and that rifle thingie she’s obviously carrying with her. 

Daniels is a member of the colony ship Covenant, and from the caption and the look of things, something bad has happened. Could there be an alien xenomorph on the loose? 

Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

Alien: Covenant stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Billy Crudup, Demian Bichir, Jussie Smollett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez and Alex England.

The movie is set to open on Aug. 4, 2017. What do you think of the pic? On a scale of one to 10, how much of an Alien or Ripley vibe does this official image give you?
