It’s been quite a month for Twentieth Century Fox and Prometheus, their presumed prequel to Alien directed by franchise creator Ridley Scott. Keeping the excitement in momentum, by clicking the above or below still you’ll now find our new gallery of hi-res imagery!
In addition, Tom Rothman, CEO of Fox, spoke with MTV about the recent trailer leak. “I heard some of it leaked, which wasn’t so good,” he said. “That’s not fair. It’s heartbreakingly unfair, because … the quality of the visuals is as spectacularly beautiful, shot in 3-D compositionally the way only a master could do it,” Rothman added. “For some early, early, early, early half-baked, half-assed test to leak, it’s so unfair.”
And speaking on the Alien connection he explains: “I’ll tell you the great thing: It’s way bigger than that. The ideas are way bigger, way more original and — it’s a scary word — way more profound.”
Fox has Prometheus slated for launch on June 8, 2012.
Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Guy Pearce, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall, Logan Marshall-Green, Benedict Wong, Emun Elliott, Ben Foster, Patrick Wilson all star.
“Ridley Scott, director of ‘Alien’ and ‘Blade Runner,’ returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.”
