20th Century Fox followed up their second annual Alien Day announcement with an early treat: a new teaser video for Alien: Covenant featuring John Denver's "Take Me Home, Country Roads" and references to a key character from Prometheus.

As reported by Bloody Disgusting, the initial new teaser video for Alien: Covenant (see below) includes the mysterious hashtag "#emohemekat" ("take me home" spelled backwards), that, when searched on Instagram, leads to another, longer, video (also see below) that features references to Elizabeth Shaw, Noomi Rapace's character from Prometheus (2012).

Previously revealed footage from Alien: Covenant has shown Michael Fassbender as the android David from Prometheus (Fassbender also plays the synthetic Walter in the follow-up film). You can view both videos below, and stay tuned to Daily Dead for more updates.

Alien: Covenant synopsis: "Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with ALIEN: COVENANT, a new chapter in his groundbreaking ALIEN franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape."

Directed by Ridley Scott, Alien: Covenant stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, and Benjamin Rigby. 20th Century Fox will unleash Alien: Covenant in theaters on May 19th.
