With less than four months to go until its release, it’s a testament to the promotion of Ridley Scott’s upcoming sci-fi actioner that we’ve still not got a clear hold on what the film’s about. Though we’ve been teased by quite a bit in recent months, we’re still pretty much in the dark, which is a great place to be in my books.
The first trailer that landed just before Christmas was brilliant, without giving anything away, and I’m hoping that things stay that way up until its release this summer.
In keeping with the lack of reveal and increase of intrigue, a new image has surfaced of two of the leads in their now-familiar space suits, and judging from the direction of their gaze (i.e. up), it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to imagine that they might be looking at the giant head that we’ve been seeing over the past few months.
“Ridley Scott, director of “Alien” and “Blade Runner,” returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.”
The new image shows us Logan Marshall-Green and Noomi Rapace futuristically kitted out, and we can also look forward to a great cast that includes Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Rafe Spall, and Patrick Wilson.
Prometheus will be with us here in the UK on 1st June, and whatever it is, I can’t wait. For now, the great new image of Marshall-Green and Rapace. As usual, you can click to enlarge.
