New Prometheus Featurette Delves Deeply Into Story

By Will LeBlanc | 9 years ago

Most of what we’ve seen so far from the Prometheus camp has been smoke and mirrors. Not that it’s kept us from scooting to the edge of our seats every time we see some new little tidbit, but in true Hollywood fashion what we’ve seen from the film has been veiled glimpses and confusing images at what the movie’s actual plot might be. Until today.

In a new featurette director Ridley Scott outlines major plot details, revealing where his characters go and why they go there. Check out the master at work below…

This is much more revealing than the previous featurette which showed nothing but the actors giving Scott verbal fellatio. Amidst the years of speculation about just what Ridley has in store for us, it’s great that he has finally revealed a little of what has been so tightly shielded behind the veil of secrecy. Noomi Rapace’s character Elizabeth Shaw takes her crew to Zeta 2 Reticuli, an actual star system, in search of what may or may not have planted early life on Earth. Very interesting stuff.

Of course, based on previous trailers in which Shaw tells us about how wrong they all were, maybe she doesn’t quite find exactly what she thought she might. With mere weeks between us and Prometheus’ release, tension couldn’t be higher and Fox knows it. Expect a few more carrots to be dangled in front of us before they lead us merrily to movie theaters for the midnight release June 8th.
