Prometheus Poster Edit

"The Search For Our Beginning Could Lead To Our End." So goes the ominous tagline for Ridley Scott's "Prometheus," which continues to point towards the plot that Fox has so far been denying.

This quasi-"Alien" prequel -- which will apparently only tie into the franchise that we know in the last eight minutes of the film --  has long been rumored to center on a crew traveling to the Zeta Riticuli star system to meet their makers after alien artifacts are discovered in Africa in 2058 that reveal Earth was terraformed to provide a home for humans. However, a crew member steals the “bio-source code” to Terraforming, a technology central to the origin of all Gods’ power, kicking off a chain of events pitting the humans against their alien creators. Now see how that tagline seems to fit even more? Add to that Scott's recent talk about the film being a metaphor about a “higher being” who challenges the gods, and it all seems to fit pretty well together. But who knows -- that tagline is so open it could mean anything.

Anyway, the film features a pretty great cast, including Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Patrick Wilson (in flashbacks) and more. A trailer is expected to arrive any day now, and this one will land in theaters on June 8, 2012. [STYD]
