Gritty New Set Photos and Lighthearted Promo Images from Prometheus
Posted 05.11.12 by BrentJS
Pretty much everything we've seen (or heard) about acclaimed director Ridley Scott's non-Alien movie that happens to be set in the Alien universe, Prometheus, has been pretty terrifying — and thank you, Fox, for allowing it to be rated 'R' for "sci-fi violence including some intense images, and brief language" — so the new promo images and photos from the set of the movie that appeared in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly took us by surprise. Sure, there's the sort of shots we've come to expect from the movie, like the crew of the spaceship Prometheus traversing a dark, creepy, techno-organic corridor on their way to finding who-knows-what that will probably eat their faces off or impregnate them with something even more horrible, but there are also several candid shots of the cast members, in full space gear, mugging for the camera and clowning around.
Prometheus was written by Damon Lindelof (Cowboys and Aliens) from a script originally written by Jon Spaihts (The Darkest Hour). The cast includes Noomi Rapace as Elizabeth Shaw, Charlize Theron as Meredith Vickers, Idris Elba as Captain Janek, Michael Fassbender as David, Guy Pearce as Peter Weyland, Kate Dickie as Ford, Rafe Spall as Milburn, Logan Marshall-Green as Charlie Holloway, and Patrick Wilson as Shaw's father.
