6new-prometheus_050312

For better or worse, it’s growing increasingly common to post on Ridley Scott’s Prometheus almost every day. Sometimes twice a day. Such is the glut of material that surrounds the film. But featurettes like this one – entitled “Origins” – are well worth your time. As brief as it is, it’s always a pleasure to hear Ridley Scott and Damon Lindelof wax philosophical about the big idea in their Alien prequel.

With ‘Prometheus,’ Scott 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.
