Fox releases a couple of images from Alien: Covenant along with cryptic numbers

For two days straight 20th Century Fox has debuted a couple images from Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant that look both gorgeous (no surprise there, it’s a Ridley Scott film after all) and intriguing.

In the first image we see what looks like a group of soldier running through some field. Is this the Engineers homeworld? Where does this take place?

The second image shows six cryo-sleep pods, one of them being turned off or simply empty. We can assume this is the titular starship Covenant:

Adding more mystery to this whole thing, each image was released along a number: 220512052104 and 130112062104. What could they mean? Some speculation online that says that first number reveals the date of the first trailer release, but the suggested date of December 22, 12:05 doesn’t add up.

For now we can only guess, but given that the release of the film has been moved up months in advance, a trailer should pop up any day now.

Alien: Covenant is coming to theaters on May 19, 2017 directed by Ridley Scott and stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Billy Crudup and Noomi Rapace, with Harry Gregson-Williams providing the score this time.
