Those fishing for newslets should pay close attention to Lindelof's comments on elements of the David story being saved "for later."
Damon Lindelof's clues to getting more out of Prometheus.
Another Amazon sales page for another soundtrack album, another string of teasing details.Here's the full roster of tracks on Marc Streitenfeld's OST, though you may not wish to read on if you're feeling spoiler-phobic.
You may not wish to know this, and I'd understand completely.
Ridley Scott says he’s an “all about everything director”, Noomi Rapace comments on his “very clear vision.” Indeed, this promo is selling us the Ridley – his vision, his “digging deeper,” “pushing the envelope” and, particularly, wanting things to be real. And he is the big star of Prometheus, I agree. At least until the… […]
I can carry out directives that my human counterparts might find distressing or unethical. David the android in the subject of this new Prometheus viral that takes an earlier clip and builds on it. It’s actually rather powerful. I wonder if there’s a lot of misdirection at work here, or if David is really going […]
The oh-so on-the-nose naming of the ship in Prometheus is a bit daft, but it’s nowhere nearly as irksome as the Icarus 2 in Sunshine. Only a film as flat-out loopy as Titanic 2 can make a virtue of this goofiness. But the Prometheus is an interesting ship, not least for its sleek designs. This […]
Fox this morning presented a package of scenes from Prometheus, followed by a Q&A with Ridley Scott, Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron. Lots from the Q&A later, but for now, I want to tell you about the scenes they presented, all of which come from very early in the film and were cut […]
Today's a big day in the Prometheus marketing campaign. This Q&A is just the next part of that.
The new, full trailer for Prometheus will premiere this Saturday, but ahead of that, here's a look at some of the new shots it will contain.
Earlier tonight, the Prometheus viral took another turn, and resulted in the unveiling of a new, quite absurdly complex image. I missed it all going on in real time, but was able to catch up from the film’s Facebook page. You’ll want to see this at full size. We know this is the chamber in […]
The trailer for Prometheus had been a long time coming, and well teased too, but it’s been with us for a few days now. And having had the chance to live with it a little, I’m still as absolutely fascinated as I was when the first footage rolled at Comic-Con in the summer. But that […]
More Prometheus can’t be a bad thing, can it? Here’s the last of the countdown trailers, with more footage from the film and a few more bits of behind-the-scenes. The image of Michael Fassbender below appeared in the latest issue of Empire; they’ve now premiered the high-res online version. This time tomorrow we’ll all be […]
Apple have slipped up and let the next Prometheus teaser out of the bag early. They managed to reel it back in, but this is the internet, so a clone is running free already. So, let’s enjoy more from Ridley Scott, and more footage from the film. I assume there will be an “In 1 […]
Thanks to Apple, the first official trailer for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus is finally with us. It’s not your typical trailer – that’s still three days away. There are things in this little clip that had me sitting forward, trying to get a better look. I can’t really praise anything more than that. I recognise some […]
Kudos to Erlingur Gretar for his fascinating interview with Ridley Scott regarding the mysteries, philosophies and design of Prometheus. Scott does trot out some of his favourite lines about the film – and acknowledges that he’s doing so – but he also opens up, brilliantly. It’s worth a read, top-to-bottom, for any amount of revelations, […]
UPDATE: Here’s an official, hi-res version of the poster, freshly dispatched from Fox HQ. Note that Janty Yates, Marc Streitenfield and Pietro Scalia can be seen in the credits as costume designer, composer and editor respectively. I’m a big fan of Scalia in particular, but I’m happy about all of this. Also of great interest […]
I can verify that this snippet is the real deal, containing as it does, footage from the Comic-Con preview for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. This was posted online by somebody who was given an online preview of the trailer as part of a market research survey. Well, let’s extend that survey to the masses: even though […]
The following direct quotes from Ridley Scott might not always seem to make perfect sense, but go with him. He’s a visual thinker, anyhow. Perhaps he should have just drawn some pictures. Talking with the Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy, Scott has finally said something concrete about where the crossover between Prometheus and Alien will come […]
Here’s a rich interview, filled with alien gold. Taking time off from pretending that Prometheus is all a big secret, just for a few minutes, Damon Lindelof actually gave some pretty candid answers to MTV‘s questions about the film. And you’ll note that his responses shift towards a focus on the big ideas, the themes […]
