Ridley Scott’s Prometheus is looking better and better the more we see of it. It would be exciting enough by virtue of being Scott’s first science fiction movie in ages, but it’s also a prequel of some sort to Alien. On top of all that, the trailers look amazing, showing the Prometheus crew exploring a distant world and running across some eerily familiar ancient ruins. At the very least, we’re finally going to learn more about the infamous “space jockey,” and that’s reason enough to buy a ticket.
Now the official twitter for the movie has released a new image of the titular ship (Just a shame about the name…). And while the picture doesn’t reveal any new clues as to the movie’s storyline, it is kind of gorgeous.
Prometheus opens in theaters on June 8th.
