'Prometheus' Stars Theron & Rapace Sing Praises For Non-Objectifying Ridley Scott

EW's cover story on "Prometheus" (May 18) helps to highlight why so many of us are looking forward to the Ridley Scott film. Not only does "Prometheus" signal Scott's return to his "Alien" roots (he tells EW he was "marginally hurt" that he was never asked to direct the sequels) with a to-die-for cast, it injects the macho summer box office with strong women.
