Finally relenting their endless barrage of spoiler-ific images on our eyes, the creative team behind “Prometheus” have decided their latest reveal to be through the film's soundtrack details, and boy, do they give a clear look at the storyline's direction. Warning: Spoilers ahead for those wanting to go in blind!

Reading straight through like writer Damon Lindelof's base outline for the film, the tracklisting to the soundtrack composed by Marc Streitenfeld boasts some pretty interesting names indeed. Kicking off the OST are tracks “A Planet” and “Going In,” which reflect the initial mission and contact of the space crew involving Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba and Charlize Theron, points well trodden in the film's trailers so far. However, we then reach a track named “Discovery,” and after that it basically lays out every beat of the second and third acts (Track 17 is of particular interest).

While no clips of the score have been released yet, it's a safe bet the trailer's double bass-pounding eagle yelp of a theme (“Out of Darkness” by Dean Valentine for those interested) is close to what the final film has in store. Streitenfeld has developed something of a Nolan/Zimmer relationship with director Ridley Scott for the last six years, acting as his composer since Scott's wet towel of a drama, “A Good Year." With his score for Joe Carnahan's “The Grey” acting as a perfectly dour companion to that film, his “Prometheus” score should have no problem getting under our skin.

The “Prometheus” soundtrack is out June 12th, just days after the film opens on the 8th. [Dread Central]
