Director Ridley Scott’s sci-fi pic Prometheus has been shrouded in mystery for some time now, with only one image released and no footage shown to the general public (we got a peek at a sizzle-reel/trailer at Comic-Con). However, all that’s about to change as the first crop of actor-revealing images appear in this week’s EW. We get a look at stars Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender in spacesuits on an unknown planet, a gigantic head statue, and what look to be primitive forms of the eggs seen in Alien. We also get a peek at Charlize Theron and Idris Elba.
Long said to be a prequel to Scott’s sci-fi/horror classic Alien, the director recently revealed that the last eight minutes of Prometheus will “evolve into a pretty good DNA of the Alien one.” With these images getting released this week, a trailer can’t be far behind. I loved what I saw at Comic-Con (it’s much more in the vein of a horror drama like Alien than a bang ‘em up action picture), so I’m very much looking forward to this one. Prometheus opens in 3D on June 8th, 2012.
