LOS ANGELES, June 17 (UPI) -- A second Alien: Covenant on set photo features director Ridley Scott and offers fans their first look at Michael Fassbender's android character David.

"Creator. Creation. #AlienCovenant," read's the film's official Facebook page alongside an image of Scott talking to a group of people while Fassbender is seen in the background listening in intently.

This is the second behind-the-scenes photo released for the upcoming sci-fi thriller that acts as a sequel to Scott's 2012 Alien prequel Prometheus.

"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," reads the film's official synopsis.

The first photo featured an unknown character's spacesuit with a patch from the Weyland-Yutani Corporation, an evil company first referenced in the original Alien from 1979.

Alien: Covenant is set to arrive in theaters Aug. 4, 2017 and will be a "hard R" according to Scott.
