Ridley Scott’s Prometheus has been floating around for a couple of years now, but kept under very tight wraps. Rumors sneak out, but half of them have been contradictory. The movie is due to hit theaters though in June and it looks like the wraps are starting to come off in order to get people excited about a final product. Now we can finally say for certain that it really is an Alien prequel, not just because they’re telling us, but because they’re showing us.
Bloody Disgusting got a hold of an early copy of a Entertainment Weekly (I know! Apparently print magazines do exist somewhere still!) that has a few stills from the film, and they were kind enough to scan them and upload them to the Internet where they can scatter to the four corners of fandom. If you feel so inclined, you may click the pics to embiggen them.
First up, we’ve got Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, and Logan Marshall-Green exploring with nifty spacesuits. Of course, their heads look cut and pasted on, so I don’t know that I quite trust the shot.
Second, we have what appears to be the cockpit of the downed ship from Alien, along with a giant head. And in the inset, Charlize Theron and Idris Elba looking suitably serious:
And they really want to emphasize that giant head, so I assume that’s a 3rd Rock From the Sun reference:
No word yet on which character will be an android full of milk.
