A new featurette for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus has gone online. This clip focuses on the character played by Charlize Theron, and some tantalizing new footage is intercut with Theron talking about her character and getting to work with Scott. The actress explains that her character, Vickers, works for The Weyland Company and is basically overseeing the mission that the team aboard Prometheus is undertaking, but she’s also a bit of a hard ass. We really haven’t seen much of her character in the previous trailers, so this featurette gives us better idea of what to expect from Theron once the film hits theaters.
Hit the jump to watch the featurette. The film also stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Logan Marshall-Green, Idris Elba, and Guy Pearce. Prometheus opens on June 8th in 3D.
