Exploring the plot and cast of the movie, this new footage is meant to convert skeptical fans into believers by revealing the background of the film and clueing us in on the mysteries and themes that the characters will be dealing with throughout.

Forget all of the online chatter about how this is a prequel to Alien and how all of these movies tie-in together because this featurette plainly explains that this film acts on its own as an exploration of the origins of humanity.
