New Featurette for PROMETHEUS Focuses on the Ship

Thus far, the marketing campaign for Prometheus has been damn impressive, highlighted by artfully wrought “viral” videos and a trailer I’ve seen seven times in theatres but remain completely enthralled by. While stronger men have sworn off all further sneak peeks of the film, others like myself have become hopelessly ensnared (cocooned, if you will) and forced to watch as potential spoilers slowly emerge from our computer screens to…um…wrap themselves around our faces. The latest promo is a featurette focusing on the good ship Prometheus herself, with cast and crew discussing things like her “insect-like design” and the thinking behind the name.

As we’re ushered around the hull and through the interior, I was reminded several times of original Alien vessel the Nostromo, particularly around the dinner table and that white room where Charlize Theron is interviewed. Though, understandably, it’s missing a bit of the retro touch that makes the first ship so aesthetically singular decades later. Hit the jump to check it out. Directed by Ridley ScottPrometheus also stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green, and Guy Pearce. It hits theatres June 8.

And 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.
