Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron in images from Ridley Scott's Prometheus
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Most people seem excited about Ridley Scott revisiting his science fiction roots with the ALIEN prequel (kind of) film PROMETHEUS. We don’t know much about it at this point, only that it takes place before the events in the original ALIEN film, but won’t actually be a true prequel. But today we get some new images from the film that give us an idea of what the movie will look like. The first image features a look at Captain Vickers (Theron) and makes note that the name of the ship is “Prometheus”, and that’s the first confirmation I’ve seen that the name of the movie is also the name of the ship. The next two images feature Logan Marshall-Green, Noomi Rapace (who are together in the film) and her android David, played by Michael Fassbender. The last two images feature looks at what’s called “The Ampule Room”, which contains the giant head-thingy.
Overall, some nice looks from the film, but they only create more questions than answers (what are they looking at?, Are those alien eggs at the bottom? etc.). I like the dark tone of the film and I’m anxious to see what Scott can do with such a great cast. PROMETHEUS hits theaters on June 8th, 2012.
