Ridley Scott’s Prometheus is finally unleashing the deluge we’ve only been receiving hints of so far.
And it looks amazing. No xenomorphs, but there are creatures, and Space Jockeys and – more importantly – the sense that whatever Prometheus turns out to be will be inspired. No matter what the label. Though, technically, it’s impossible for it not to be an Alien prequel. Even if there aren’t any xenomorphs, it’s most certainly in the same universe. I personally think it’s a good thing they might not be in the movie, there’s no way Scott can recreate the terror of the first film by using a creature that’s been drug through the mud after six installments (if you’re counting the AVP stuff, which totally neutered the creature).
“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.”
In theaters June 8, 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.
