Fox apparently got sick of everyone and their dog posting rumors about Prometheus and decided to just go ahead and release a plot synopsis of their own. This should finally get it ironed out just whether or not this is going to be a prequel to Alien, just set in the same universe, feature xenomorphs, etc. Here's the plot synopsis:

Visionary filmmaker Ridley Scott returns to the genre he helped define, creating an original science fiction epic set in the most dangerous corners of the universe. The film takes a team of scientists and explorers on a thrilling journey that will test their physical and mental limits and strand them on a distant world, where they will discover the answers to our most profound questions and to life's ultimate mystery.

Oh fantastic, so Ridley Scott is making a feature version of Stargate: Universe?

I kid. Even though the synopsis perfectly fits that series, it also perfectly fits just about any other science fiction film equally well. If this synopsis told you any less about the movie, it would actually impart negative knowledge, sucking the very knowledge of the film's existence out of your brain. About the only film this synopsis rules out is a Sex and the City sequel.
