Prometheus. Ridley Scott's Sci-Fi Prequel To Aliens.
Arriving in Theaters June, 2012
I remember where I was when I first watched Aliens. My high school friends and I were over at one of their houses and the movie had just came out on video. Blockbuster had it and we picked it up along with a Dominoes pizza and 2 liter bottle of Coke. I can still remember Bill Paxtons character Pvt. Hudson going all psycho and yelling at the top of his lungs "game over, game over man!" when the Alien started tearing up the joint. He knew he was next.
Well now it's Prometheus turn. Coming to theaters in June, 2012, This Science Fiction epic looks to be a prequel to the first Alien movie that came out in 1979.
Ridley Scott returns to his sci-fi roots directing Prometheus and by all indications has created another masterpiece of cinema.
Prometheus takes its name from the spaceship that the films researchers use to investigate a distant planet that contains "Alien DNA". The film is set in space for the most part where the scientists and explorers head off in search for answers to life's most profound questions.
Not much more is known about the films plot however, the movies plot revolves around the original Alien creature found in the 1979 film. Called the "Xenomorphs", the creatures size in Prometheus is purported to be significantly larger than in the first Alien film.
So I wait with baited breath. From watching the trailer it appears as though Mr. Scott has hit another one out of the park. I will gladly hand over my money to see this feature at my local cinemaplex.
