New Look at Images from Ridley Scott’s PROMETHEUS

     November 30, 2011


A week ago, we brought you an early look at scans from Ridley Scott’s new Alien-“prequel” Prometheus. They showed actors Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class) and Logan Marshall-Green (Devil) in their luminescent-collared spacesuits exploring what looked like ruins of an unknown planet. They also showed stars Charlize Theron (Hancock) and Idris Elba (Thor) on the bridge of the eponymous ship. Lording over the explorers in the background was a monolithic face looking down on a field of what appear to be primitive versions of Alien eggs down in the fog. Well now we can show you all of that in more clarity, along with a couple of new images from the film. With clearer images available, a trailer should be right around the corner. Prometheus opens in 3D on June 8th, 2012. Hit the jump to check out the images.

While Scott has downplayed the film as a pure prequel, he has also revealed the the last few minutes of Prometheus will be an obvious transition into the beloved franchise. In the director’s words:

“The last eight minutes will evolve into a pretty good DNA of the Alien one.”

The film also stars Patrick Wilson (Hard Candy), Rafe Spall (One Day) and Guy Pearce (The King’s Speech) in a screenplay by Damon Lindelof (Lost) and Jon Spaihts (The Darkest Hour) that follows a team of explorers investigating the origins of mankind on a distant planet. You can get caught up on all our previous Prometheus coverage here.

    Couldn’t be more stoked.

      I know it’s still very early but these pics give me a really good vibe and I’m loving the set design.

      • WhoAreYouPeople?!

        Really?? These pics remind me of a combination of the 90′s Star Trek and Lucas’ BRAND NEW looking trilogy — shiny and overly designed. What was always cool about the Alien franchise films is they seemed like everything was worn, almost dirty, and set in what could have been a realistic future with technology not too far off. Sleek body suits with chest plates??! Pleeeezze! :(

        It looks close to the Abrams Star Trek movie too. Put in some orchestral music, hd action scenes, masochism bravado and it’s not far from another cheesy dime-a-dozen scifi movie . Alien movie is not supposed to be shiny.

        This movie will probably seal the deal on R.Scott unimportant career today. I will go far as to say he not been important for 20 years now, and hasmade only dogshiit since. T. Scott at least made some interesting stuff the last 6-7 years.

        Plastic, plastic! And why these guys have lights inside their collar? Such lights would drive anyone nuts in real life operations, especially they the shine inside a helmet, creating reflections.

  • Viscal

    I see a big alien leg on the right hand corner!


  • Reggie

    The fourth pic is the most interesting to me. I can make out what appears to be an alien corpse to the right of the actors kneeling by the urns.

    • Merlin

      Look at the high res version. It’s not one of the urns but one of the eggs!

      • Reggie

        you may be right I can’t tell though.

  • JohnP

    Fourth pic looks like it has a alienesque corpse to the right and I reckon the actors are examining its head. Some kinda Alien/Space Jockey hybrid?

  • Reggie

    Whatever it is it looks kinda big could be a space jockey.

  • Viscal

    Reggie: *a dead space jockey*

    I’ve just made some desktop wallpapers.


    • Reggie

      I figured as much the body type looks too hefty to be a Xenomorph. This movie is shaping up to be pretty cool.

  • Tarek

    Sir Ridley Scott is the best cinematographer and director when it comes to Sci-Fi.

    I fank you very butch Ridley!

    • Lolo

      Do you confirm, Tarek, that the second photo above (PROM-002) is a “nasty composite”?

  • Banekilla

    Holy crap. The pic of the two women exploring in the Ampule room looks stunning. Dark and moody and alien. Can´t wait for Prometheus.

    Ridley’s sportin’ the North Face. Ah yeah!

  • Jay

    Stringer Bell in space

  • Pragmator

    If you look closely, Idris Elba’s character appears to be wearing a Weyland Utani t-shirt under his flight jacket.

  • Frank

    Ridley is what… 74? Apparently, he drinks the blood of virgins or something cause he does not seem to age much.

  • Xena

    Mr. Scott has hinted that fans of the Alien Franchise may see “strands of DNA” of those films meshed with the fabric of his new opus. Judging from the images it might be a little more than that.

    If you look at the photograph of Charlize Theron, and Idris Elba, you can clearly make out the the top portion of the Weyland Yutani logo on Elba’s T-shirt; at least an early version of it.
