PROMETHEUS Viral Campaign Reveals New Image

     March 21, 2012


If you thought the Prometheus madness was over just because WonderCon has come to an end, you’re sadly mistaken. Following a bevy of content that included trailers, a live chat and much more, a new image from the film has been uncovered as part of the pic’s viral campaign. We’ve already seen two fantastic videos thanks to the Prometheus viral—one featuring Guy Pearce giving a TED Talk and one showing the unboxing of Michael Fassbender’s android character—and now fans have cracked the code to uncover this new look at the spaceship Prometheus.

Hit the jump to take a look, and if you missed them be sure to check out our recap of the film’s WonderCon panel and an interview with Fassbender, director Ridley Scott and writer Damon Lindelof. Prometheus opens in IMAX 3D on June 8th.

This image comes courtesy of the website Project Prometheus. Fans figured out that if you add “/eridu” to the end of the url, you’re prompted for a password. Thanks to those with more patience than I, the password was revealed to be “tell abu shahrain.” Click the image to enlarge.


Here’s the official 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.
