Ridley Scott is back in the Sci-Fi game. On June 8th he will release the much anticipated and discussed, Prometheus.
The movie was thought to be a full on prequel to his 1979 classic, “ALIEN”, but he hemmed and hawed over that idea. Ridley will only admit that this movie, “shares DNA with” the other, but with the trailer that was released a few months ago, and now this one, you can see that this movie in some very clear ways is tied to that movie. Surely there will be a debate if this is truly a “prequel”, but no matter if it is or not, the movie looks fantastic.
If you go to the front page of this site, you will see a promotional video for Weyland Industries and their new synthetic human, “David”. Not only is it crazy creepy, it sets up the tie in as robots like that were in both ALIEN with “Ash” and ALIENS with Bishop. The script was co-written by “Lost” Damon Lindelof, and has a collection of stars including the very popular and beautiful Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender.
The plot appears to be that Weyland industries sends out a team to find the origins of life and get into a mess of trouble.
