A new featurette for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus has landed online. The sci-fi pic is one of the most anticipated films of the year, so I doubt many of you need further convincing to check it out opening weekend. That said, this new featurette is a nice treat for fans anxiously awaiting Scott’s return to the horror/sci-fi genre. Scott himself is featured prominently in the clip, as we get bunch of glimpses at scenes being filmed intercut with finished footage. Also of note, Scott is seen wearing 3D glasses while watching playback. He spoke glowingly of the 3D format last year at Comic-Con and I’m hoping to see something truly special when Prometheus hits theaters, akin to Martin Scorsese’s beautiful use of 3D in Hugo.
Hit the jump to watch the featurette. The film stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce, Rafe Spall, Sean Harris, Logan Marshall-Green, and Charlize Theron. Prometheus opens in 3D on June 8th.
