17 New Images from PROMETHEUS

     May 10, 2012


The latest issue of EW appears to have a big story on Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, as the magazine has posted 17 new images from the film for our viewing pleasure.  In addition to film stills and candid on-set shots, we also get a few “photoshoot”-style images, including Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron and Noomi Rapace goofing around in their spacesuits (this is now my favorite Prometheus image ever).  We recently learned that the film will officially be rated R (rejoice!), and a new featurette entitled “Origins” went online yesterday for those of you who are strangely still on the fence about this one.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  The film also stars Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green, Rafe Spall, Sean Harris, and Guy PearcePrometheus opens in 3D on June 8th.

Here’s the synopsis for Prometheus:

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.

    why does the android need the oxygen helmet?

    • Singularity

      And a nametag on his forehead.

    • tarek

      Why ? Hum…let me think for a minute… Maybe because he is an…an…android ? ^^
      He must have some human-like cells and tissues. His brain is half bio and half electronics.

        I’ll admit I don’t know much about fictional robots, but I was under the impression that “android” was a more inclusive term… not just used for “Robocop” types that are a mix of organic and robotics but also for the 100% nuts-and-bolts types of robotic beings

        From what I can recall from the Alien movies I don’t think they ever implied that the androids had any sort of human composition, they mostly seemed to just be a pile of milk and plastic tubing from Home Depot.

      • Anon

        You’re thinking of “Cyborg” not “Android”.

      • tarek

        I am talking about androids not cyborgs who are just Humans with mechanical parts.

        If you remember the scene where Bishop shares a lunch with Ripley and the crew at the beginning, he wasn’t eating nuts and bolts or some mineral oil, but the same food as the crew. thus, his body needs to be sustained by nutrients, just like any human being.

      • Casinote

        Tarek, I don’t know why you think your interpretation of androids and cyborgs is so much more informed than everyone else’s but it widely accepted that androids are robots designed to simply resemble humans while cyborgs have both organic and robotic parts. It wouldn’t even be such a big deal other than how arrogant and condescending you were in your reply.

        P.S.: Bishop consuming food doesn’t necessarily mean that “his body needs to be sustained by nutrients” as you said. Perhaps he was designed to consume and dispose of food to make his human colleagues more at home around him?

      • tarek

        You are right casinote. From now on, I will use more Second-type conditionals and less statements. But come on, admit that my theory stands well casinote. ^^

    • elchan

      Maybe, like in the first Alien movie, they were not told that he’s an android.

    • peter christopher

      David’s robot is made to look human . Humans are more comfortable with their own kind around them . For david not to wear a suit would have defeated the object

  • tarek

    Thanks Sir Ridley. I love you.

    When the Prometheus trailer played in the theater last weekend, several people near me complained about the noise and flashing images. Were the loudness and jumbled imagery meant to impress the audience? If so, it failed.

    My friends asked me what the trailer was about. They were shocked when I said it was an Alien reboot since there was nothing in the trailer to alert the casual viewer to the connection with the old franchise. The original is a classic but it was released over a generation ago. The audience needs more than some glimpses of alien eggs and sculpture to get the connection between the films.

    • Ida

      This movie is set before the events of Alien. It is not a reboot.

    • THGhost

      There’s plenty of stuff in the Prometheus trailers to link it to Alien. Obviously don’t know that much about Alien.

      And like Ida said, it’s a prequel. Not a reboot.

    • They Call Me Jackie

      Oh dear, probably a TDKR troll paid by Warners lol….sadly you’re ill informed – it’s not a Alien re-boot…in fact, I’m bored relaying this to you already, seeing as you probably know.

      One thing is certain, the forums are full of fans thrilled at the prospect of this re-energising not only the franchise, but also the genre of sci-fi horror!

      BRING. IT. ON :)

  • Norm

    I must really have not been paying attention to the trailers, because I never noticed that other woman before, the one with the Ramona haircut about six pictures down. Who is that?

    • cynic

      Her name really isn’t important. She’s just another incubator soon to “birth” alien spawn.

    I am big fan of writer Jon Spaihts . And this movie’s story has been written by him. I am just waiting for 8th June 2012, when it will release in USA. I know that there will be huge actions in this movie.

    Norm, the woman you’re asking about is Scottish actress Kate Dickie, most widely known for her roles in the mini-series “The Pillars of the Earth” and the HBO series “Game of Thrones.”
