Ridley Scott’s Prometheus opens in US theaters today and I’m suggesting you find the biggest and best screen you can to see it on. I’m posting my spoiler heavy review (for discussion purposes) later today and I urge you to read it only if you’ve seen the movie. It’s sort of a post-viewing “let’s talk.” In the meantime, you can check out Brad’s spoiler light review.

I’ve already posted an interview with Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender and my chats with Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce and Logan Marshall-Green. And yesterday we had a longer one on one with Ridley Scott.

Today’s interview is with Damon Lindelof and he gets in to the genesis of the project and where in the process he came onboard. He also discusses the questions the film asks (some are answered and some aren’t) and how Prometheus differs from Alien. I also have a more spoilery interview with Lindelof in which we go into greater detail on some of the film’s surprises. That’s something that will probably hit Monday.

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.

Prometheus is now playing. Head inside to check out the interview (and beware of mild spoilers I suppose).
