Patrick Wilson has always been just on the cusp of great things, particularly after his fantastic breakout performance in "Little Children," but further acclaim has been just out of reach. Projects he has signed on to since -- ranging from the low key drama "Evening," the race baiter "Lakeview Terrance" and blockbuster fare like "The A-Team" and "Watchmen" -- just never quite made the grade, but coming off a massive hit this year with "Insidious" the actor has leapt straight into one of the most anticipated films of 2012.

Comic-Con wrapped up over a week ago so we're kind of surprised it's taken this long for this to happen, but some pretty grainy, lo-res but no less intriguing snaps from the "Prometheus" footage shown in San Diego have made it to the web, providing us our first look at Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace and Idris Elba in the film.

Cosplay outfits are headed to the dry cleaner and weary geeks are heading bleary eyed onto planes back to their homes around the world, and thus wraps another Comic-Con, but with the deluge of news and bits and pieces of info, stories from San Diego will continue over the next day or so. While the financial impact of studios bringing their wares to Comic-Con is still debatable, it's undeniable that these few days in California are quickest way to get at least some (fleeting) attention on new projects. And thus, we have two more peeks at some big projects on the horizon.

And Five More Things We Learned At Comic-Con Ridley Scott’s “Prometheus” has been shrouded in secrecy and confusing rhetoric almost since we first heard of the project. First it was an “Alien” prequel and then it wasn’t. Now it is again. But not really. Whatever. At least they are now discussing the project and promising some footage and/or trailers surfacing by fall. And they’re at least sure enough about it to start shedding at least a little light (which will most likely give us even more questions).

Damon Lindelof Admits The Title Might Be PretentiousThe puzzle of Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" is slowly, but surely beginning to take a hazy shape. Earlier today, we got our first official look at the film, and the surprises keep coming. The press conference brought out one of the film's stars, Charlize Theron and together with writer Damon Lindelof, they fielded questions about the upcoming "Alien" universe film and while we're still no closer to a full picture of what's to come, we did get a few more scraps.

No aliens, no real indication of who is actually in the space suit or even what the hell we're looking at, but that doesn't make the first look at Ridley Scott's guarded "Prometheus" any less exciting, and with a panel presentation coming up later on today at Comic-Con, more morsels of info are sure to be shared.

It’s no surprise to anyone who reads daily film sites that bloggers have the tendency to spoil entire scenes, plots, or even whole movies prior to their release. One of the most memorable leaks was for the ending of director McG’s vapid “Terminator: Salvation,” in which the film’s entire ending was leaked by film bloggers a year before it was set to be released. Warner Bros. and McG insisted that bloggers were way off, but he eventually admitted that everyone had been spot on all along.

Regardless of whether that plot synopsis from last night is legit or not (and Fox have denied it), we're more excited for "Prometheus," the sci-fi tale that seems to be set in the same universe as the "Alien" films, and that marks director Ridley Scott's first science fiction movie since "Blade Runner," than we thought we'd be, considering it started off as that most redundant of movie phenomenons, a prequel. Scott and writer Damon Lindelof have been talking a good talk about the originality of the film, and they've assembled quite the cast, with Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall, Guy Pearce and Logan Marshall-Green. And now it's being alleged that another top actor has joined the cast.

Writer Damon Lindelof Explains Why Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus' Isn't & Is An 'Alien' PrequelIn case you've been living under a rock, you're aware that director Ridley Scott is returning to the world of sci-fi after a nearly 30-year absence. Yes, it's been that long since "Blade Runner" in 1982 ("Legend" is fantasy, leave it at that). He making "Prometheus," a project that started out as a "Alien" prequel written by Jon Spaihts and then morphed into something new when "Lost" writer Damon Lindelof pitched a new direction which Scott loved. 20th Century Fox and Scott, pivoted and "Prometheus" was born -- though considering how fast they changed everything, found a cast, a green light and a release date, one has to wonder if the changes weren't that radical.
