Prometheus: Sharing the same DNA with the Alien Franchise

In the distant future, two superpowers control Earth and fight each other for all the solar system's natural resources. When one side dispatches a team to a distant planet to "terraform" it for human colonization, the team discovers an indigenous race of bio-mechanical predators.

Ridley Scott, director of 'Alien' and 'Blade Runner,' returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race. 

Genre: Science Fiction
Director: Ridley Scott
Cast: Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace
Release Date: June 8, 2012


An Alien prequel to be told in another new and complete series for years to come? Just wait and see. 

With the upcoming batch of high profile and high budgeted movies to be shown this year, I have a gut feeling that this one by Ridley Scott is going to be the Dark Horse to stun them all. I am a huge Ridley Scott fan and I love collecting and studying his films. I bet my archive that this is going to give The Avengers, Hunger Games, Amazing Spiderman, Dark Knight Rises, MiB3, The Hobbit, Bourne Legacy, Skyfall, Battleship, Wrath of the Titans, and even the Expendables 2 a pretty good and impressive fight in the box office and in the chalk board of film critics. I give it a good chance at the second spot head-to-head against the Dark Knight Rises in the overall ranking next only to the sureball and clear winner this year; The Hobbit - An Unexpected Journey. 

We've simply got another reason to return to the cinema this year.
