Alien: Covenant (20th Century Fox)

It’s the UK premiere of ‘Alien: Covenant’ tonight – 4 May, 2017 – with many of the film’s stars set the walk the red carpet at the glitzy event from 5:45 pm.

If you’ve not been able to make it to London’s Leicester Square to see Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, and Ridley Scott in person – never fear – as we have the livestream of the event below.

The video is due to kick off at 5:45pm UK time, so keep this page bookmarked and follow the events as they happen live.

Set after the events of ‘Prometheus’, ‘Alien: Covenant’ picks up the story 10 years on. The crew of the colonising vessel Covenant is awakened from their hyper sleep by a mysterious event, but what links the Covenant to the missing crew of the Prometheus? Needless to say, sci-fi’s most terrifying creation the xenomorph plays a big part in proceedings.

‘Alien: Covenant’ is released in UK cinemas and IMAX May 12. Watch a prologue to the film below.
