Prometheus probably has the highest ratio of Audience Anticipation to Public Information of any movie in production. It’s a quasi-Alien prequel (hence the anticipation), but the only solid detail we know is Prometheus takes place in outer space. The first image released by Warner Bros. confirms that much. Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce, and possibly Ben Foster star. I can’t tell you definitively who is in that space suit, but my bet is on Rapace, the female lead in the movie. We should learn more at Fox Comic-Con panel later today — check back soon for our recap.
Prometheus is scheduled for release on June 8, 2012. See the new image after the jump.
