Ridley Scott's Prometheus: Spaceship, Transport, and Pod Schematics, Plus a Russian Trailer Containing New Footage
Posted 04.18.12 by BrentJS
Three new high-resolution photos have been added to the Project Prometheus viral website, which serves as a sort of show-and-tell for fictional investors interested in Weyland Corp.'s search for the origin of life on Earth — the plot point that propels Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace), Meredith Vickers (Charlize Theron) and the crew of the Prometheus into deep space, where they eventually come across something... alien. These new images are highly detailed schematics showing the Prometheus, the very Aliens-esque RTO1 Transport vehicle, and the Med Pod 720i, where we imagine at least one member of the crew will succumb to an alien infection of some sort, if not a full-on chest-bursting attack.
To see the images in HD, head over to the Project Prometheus website.
Additionally, a new international trailer for Prometheus has made its way online. You'll have to suffer through Russian dubbing, but it's worth it for the five or six seconds of new footage it contains, including more from the cave on the alien planet and more of the "Space Jockey."
Prometheus was directed by Ridley Scott, from a screenplay by Damon Lindelof (Cowboys and Aliens) [after Jon Spaihts (The Darkest Hour)]. The cast includes Idris Elba as Janek, captain of the Prometheus; Michael Fassbender as an android named David; and Guy Pearce as Peter Weyland, head of Weyland Corp. Other cast members include Kate Dickie as Ford, Rafe Spall as Milburn, Logan Marshall-Green as Charlie Holloway, and Patrick Wilson as Shaw's father.
