Everything about Prometheus (Ridley Scott’s sort-of, but not really prequel to Alien) was already fairly epic—that cast, that trailer, that synopsis boasting of travelers journeying to the edge of the space to find the meaning of life (I feel dwarfed by the incomprehensible vastness of the universe just thinking about it). Well, imagine all that, but twice as big, because Deadline reports that, in addition to puny, regular-sized screens, Prometheus will also be running in IMAX 3D when it’s released on June 8.
Alien, my favorite Scott film, is an utterly masterful marriage of sci-fi and gothic horror. My hopes for Prometheus aren’t quite so lofty. But I’m definitely shelling out the extra dough for an IMAX ticket when the time comes. Prometheus stars Noomi Rapace, Guy Pearce, Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba, Patrick Wilson and Charlize Theron.
