It's still pending a rating, but there's been a question about 'Prometheus' since it was conceived. All the other 'Alien' films have been R rated, and - even though this isn't so much a prequel but an 'in-universal' film - would the scissor-happy Fox cut the film to get it a PG-13? Fox chairman Tom Rothman says no.
Prometheus - Page 7
As we gear up for this summer's movie season - which starts in a little over a week - one of our most anticipated is 'Prometheus' which has Ridley Scott returning to the science fiction well and the world of 'Alien.' But (as we've been told) it's not a prequel in the classic sense of setting up the first film. There's a new featurette, and it speaks to its brilliant director while offering new footage. Take a look...
It's hard to call what 20th Century Fox is doing to promote Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus' "viral." It's not like they're hiding what they're doing, it's not spreading because people found it accidentally, it didn't get popular without the context of the movie itself, and all the movie sites know about it. So let's call it 'in character.' Here's some posters for the movie which don't directly sell the movie.
Without question, ‘Prometheus’ is one of our most-anticipated blockbusters reaching theaters this summer. Sir Ridley Scott returning to the world of his seminal ‘Alien’ for what could amount to an epic prequel? Yeah, we’re in. But as the studio’s viral campaign ramps ups, details about the plot might be a little spoilerish, so keep that in mind as you click through and learn more about Michael Fassbender’s character, David.
The more we learn about Sir Ridley Scott’s ‘Prometheus,’ the less we appear to understand. And that’s a good thing. Even though 20th Century Fox has shared trailers, TV spots and images from the anticipated summer blockbuster, I still don’t feel like we’ve scratched the surface of what Scott has in store.
Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus' has been ramping up its advertising, and we've been hit with trailers both foreign and domestic. The film's due out June 8, but we're now getting TV spots for the upcoming feature, which suggests that 20th Century Fox is fairly confident about the film they've got. And this new commercial makes us just as confident.
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.'
A new trailer for the Ridley Scott helmed 'Prometheus' is online and it effortlessly paints the film as the blockbuster to beat this summer. It also makes it pretty clear that most definitely takes place in the 'Alien' universe, even if it's not necessarily a full-on 'Alien' prequel. We took an in-depth look at the new trailer and have broken it down, scene-by-scene...
Earlier today, the official 'Prometheus' Twitter feed linked to the cryptic, yet beautiful, image you see above - the culmination of a new part of the film's viral marketing campaign. So what exactly are we looking at?
In this viral video for 'Prometheus' -- created by Ridley Scott, Damon Lindelof and Luke Scott for the TED conference in Long Beach, California -- Guy Pearce makes an appearance as Peter Weyland, one half of the sinister Weyland-Yutani corporation from the 'Alien' franchise.
