Well, Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" is just looming over the horizon and there is no movie this summer -- or hell, this year -- that is matching the anticipation felt for this quasi-"Alien" prequel. And though actual details on the plot and where this story will go has been kept mostly close to the chest, there has been a generous serving of images and video from the film, and a few more pics have arrived as you head into your weekend.
The film's Facebook Starmap app is another element of the ongoing campaign for the film, and within are a few more images of the world we'll be taken to at the multiplex. There's another shot of android Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba commandering the ship and lots of holograms. What does it all mean? Who knows, but as we already know from the trailers, things get a bit hairy for everyone when they venture to that alien planet. It seems it wasn't an invitation after all.
"Prometheus" opens in June 8th and some are speculating that it may premiere at Cannes first. Which actually, isnt' a bad guess, and remember, Scott unveiled "Robin Hood" there a couple of years back as well...
