The marketing campaign for Ridley Scott’s upcoming Alien prequel Prometheus has done a brilliant job of simultaneously making this look like the must see movie of the year, and telling us almost nothing about the plot. All we really know is that people are in space and something horrible happens. Along the way, there will be stunning cinematography.
Stunning cinematography just like this…
Do yourself a favor and make sure you’ve actually clicked on that image to see the massive, hugely detailed, gigantic high-res version. Even with the super high-res still there’s so much going on in there it’s difficult to contemplate.
Presumably this is a still from the film, though it’s so fantastic it would be easier to believe it’s concept art. The image was released as part of Prometheus’s viral campaign through a Twitter account without any real explanation. I wouldn’t have it any other way. I don’t want to know what’s going on, at least not yet.
