Prometheus Featurette Reveals New Footage
04.26.12 by Ryan
Footage of Ridley Scott's upcoming Prometheus has been slowly trickling out. The latest can be found in a new featurette for the movie, which goes behind-the-scenes of the director's first foray into the sci-fi genre since 1982's Blade Runner.
Since it's set in the same world as Alien, one of the questions has been whether Prometheus is a true prequel to Scott's 1979 classic, Sadly, we don't get the answer to that question here. However, we do get to see some awesome new footage while Scott discusses his excitement about returning to the sci-fi genre... Which only serves to prompt the new question: "Why do we have to wait for June to see this movie?"
The featurette also has cast members Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Logan Marshall-Green, Michael Fassbender, and Guy Pearce discuss what it's like to work with Scott on the movie. (The consensus is he's terrific and that the movie has been great to work on.)
Prometheus was initially written by Jon Spaihts (The Darkest Hour) and rewritten by Damon Lindelof (Cowboys and Aliens, Lost). The cast also includes Idris Elba as Janek, Sean Harris as Fifield, and Rafe Spall as Milburn.
