Filming is currently underway on Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant, and -- perhaps in belated celebration of the original film's 37th anniversary yesterday -- the Alien Anthology Twitter account has tweeted out the first official look at the film.

The dark-hued image (taken from one of the on-set camera monitors) features Katherine Waterston's character Daniels, a crew member on the Covenant spacecraft that travels to a remote planet whose only inhabitant is Michael Fassbender's David, the android who survived the events of Prometheus.

Alien: Covenant is slated for release on August 4, 2017.
