Alien: Covenant won’t hit theaters till next summer, but we’re beginning to get a few early peeks at the follow-up to 2012’s Prometheus, with this picture of Danny McBride and director Ridley Scott on the Australia set. 

It’s unclear who exactly McBride is playing, but — judging from his wardrobe — he looks to be a member of the crew of the colony ship Covenant. In the words of the studio, the crew “discovers what 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.” 

In addition to the return of Fassbender, other cast members include Billy Crudup, Jussie Smollett, Amy Seimetz, Katherine Waterston and Demián Bichir.

Alien: Covenant will arrive in theaters on Aug. 4, 2017.
