Charlize Theron wielding a flame thrower and Michael Fassbender riding a bike and shooting hoops are just some of the new bits and bobs of footage to be found in the latest featurette for Ridley Scott's hugely anticipated "Prometheus."

This three-and-a-half-minute featurette is mostly your standard EPK stuff, with the cast and writers -- Noomi Rapace, Guy Pearce, Logan Marshall-Green, Jon Spaihts, Damon Lindelhof -- all offering up empty quotes, but it's the footage framing it that's the most interesting, offering even more glimpses of the upcoming film. There's a part of us worried that we're seeing a bit too much (there's one rather big spaceship explosion that feels like too much of a reveal), yet at the same time, it's still keeping us feverishly excited for the pic. However, it's the opening two questions that kick off the promo vid that sum up the themes the movie will be tackling quite succinctly: "Where do we come from?" and "What is our purpose?" And by the looks of it, those are questions that were probably better left unasked.

"Prometheus" arrives on June 8th.
