It has arrived.
And I must say ... it looks great
That's right, Ridley Scott is back at the reins of a sweeping science fiction film, and it looks like the best thing he's done in years.
For those not in the know, Prometheus
is the sort-of prequel to Alien
, though recent interviews have revealed there will be no Xenomorphs (the iconic Geiger-designed monster from the four Alien
films). Instead Prometheus
will focus on the Space Jockey, a piece of set design from the original Alien
which took on a life of its own among the fan community and which director Ridley Scott decided deserved its own big-budget back story. Prometheus
hits theaters Summer, 2012. How excited are you? Rant or rave in the comments below.
