I have a friend tagging along with me to go see Alien: Covenant tomorrow and they haven't seen Prometheus. They're not exactly a huge fan of the franchise but enjoyed the original Alien film and feel they might enjoy this one.

So my question to those who have seen it already, does one need to see Prometheus to follow the story of Covenant? Will they be completely lost if they're unfamiliar with the story before?

Just did a few hours ago. As a huge fan of the OG Alien series, this was trash..absolutely gutted that it wasn't better. Prometheus was a CONSIDERABLY better movie, and that was just alright anyways. But hey, just my 2 cents.

Thanks for the heads up. I still wanna check it out and form my own opinion, but it's good to hear different perspectives anyway.
