Ridley Scott is still exploring the world of Alien and is showing no signs of slowing down.

And that's just fine with us!

Upon the approaching release of Alien: Covenant, we spoke with Scott of what attracted him to the original Alien script way back in the late '70s and what made him want to revisit and explore its core mystery (namely, the Space Jockey and its ship) over 30 years later with Prometheus ... and how Alien: Covenant is a continuation of that journey.

Watch the interview below. Alien: Covenant opens on May 19.
