Prometheus Gets an Official 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.
