New Images from Ridley Scott’s Prometheus Show Alien “DNA”

Ridley Scott's Prometheus

When news first broke of Ridley Scott creating a prequel to Alien, many people were rightfully excited. While that specific project broke down, it turned into something equally interesting: Prometheus. Now, I’m not using Alien “DNA” in the literal sense. Instead, I’m referring to Ridley Scott’s original comments about the film, in that it will share many “strands of Alien’s DNA” and have similar underlying themes. That fact is incredibly apparent with these new images released to tide us over until the inevitable trailer release.

Prometheus is one of my most anticipated films of 2012, in no small part due to the incredible cast: Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, and Guy Pearce. And that’s only a few! But mostly it’s great to see Ridley Scott come back to a genre that he helped establish. I think this will, at the very least, be a fun new addition to Ridley’s sci-fi film collection. It’s currently scheduled to hit theaters on June 8th, 2012.
