Alien Prometheus is the newest Alien movie (duh) , and it looks to bring this franchise to a respectable form. The series took a shit when they allowed Alien VS Predator to happen, and made a mockery out of this once powerful idea.
This new ‘Alien’ movie is no longer a prequel as planned, it will be an entirely new story after Fox Studios has ditched the idea set forth by Scott. Noomi Rapace is still set to star as the main character. The film is a retelling of the years before Ridley and the crew were shitting bricks and running from the original Alien. We learn more about what the Aliens are about, why we were out in space to begin with and more.
Prometheus ties up a lot of loose ends for fans of the original Alien series.
From Ridley Scott :
While Alien was indeed the jumping off point for this project, out of the creative process evolved a new, grand mythology and universe in which this original story takes place,” said Scott in a statement. “The keen fan will recognize strands of Alien’s DNA, so to speak, but the ideas tackled in this film are unique, large and provocative. I couldn’t be more pleased to have found the singular tale I’d been searching for, and finally return to this genre that’s so close to my heart.”
The film takes a team of scientists and explorers on a thrilling journey that will test their physical and mental limits and strand them on a distant world, where they will discover the answers to our most profound questions and to life’s ultimate mystery.
In Alien Prometheus, mankind went looking for answers to our own history, and that’s when shit gets real.
Prometheus is slated for a Mach 9th, 2012 release.
That there is an ounce of faith Ridley Scott can make anything decent out of a depleted franchise. Our bet? He makes this into a 3-D movie, giving it a new twist. Update! Confirmed! Scott has confirmed the new Prometheus movie will be in 3D.
The death of possible one of my favorite Sci-fi films as a child… however, I doubt Ridley Scott will take that many chances with the rebirth of his movie… right?
We still have faith in Scott, and feel getting rid of the prequel was a good idea, but what do you think?
