New ‘Prometheus’ WonderCon Footage Dishes Out The Terror
Easily one of the biggest panel events at this past weekend’s WonderCon was the one from 20th Century Fox. Not only did they give us a sneak peek at ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter‘ but showed off new footage of the highly anticipated Ridley Scott movie ‘Prometheus.’
The film has been widely publicized as the director’s return to science fiction, the same genre that he changed decades ago with ‘Blade Runner’ and ‘Alien.’ With his direction, the stellar cast and a sharp script written by Damon Lindelof and Jon Spaihts, it’s a perfect combination. The cast includes Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron and Guy Pearce.
In the late 21st Century, a star map is discovered within the imagery of Aztec, Mesopotamian and Magdalenian culture. The crew of the spaceship Prometheus is sent on a scientific expedition to follow the map as part of a mission to find the origins of mankind. Exploring the advanced civilization of an extraterrestrial race, they soon discover a threat to humanity’s very existence.
Keep your eyes out not only for new trailers for the upcoming movie but viral videos as we creep closer towards its release. ‘Prometheus’ will be out in theaters on June 8, 2012.
