While filming started on Fede Alvarez’s upcoming addition to the Alien franchise earlier this month, details on the film have remained very sparse. Thanks to several audition videos that have made their way online, we now have some details about the world Alien: Romulus is set in. Beware some potential major spoilers.
The audition videos – all for a character called Bjorn – contain three different scenes. The first scene finds Bjorn approached by two characters, Rain (who Alien vs. Predator Galaxy understands to be the film’s main character, probably portrayed by Cailee Spaeny) and her android “brother” Andy. Bjorn tells Rain that he’s discovered an abandoned Weyland-Yutani ship and wants to use Andy to gain access, as Andy was manufactured by the Company.
The second scene finds Andy and Bjorn alone, presumably aboard the previously mentioned Weyland-Yutani. Bjorn is clearly disturbed by the situation, and Andy is attempting to calm the spooked Bjorn by telling him a joke. Bjorn clearly isn’t fond of Rain’s synthetic brother, telling Andy that he can’t wait to never see him again.
The third and final scene sees Bjorn saving another character from what I presume to be a facehugger. The dialogue seems to revolve around whether it had time to finish the implantation. Bjorn is clearly in a very agitated state by this point and attempts to escape, but Andy blocks his way. Bjorn appears to shoot Andy.
