The international version of Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" (stateside June 8) reveals more about the film's story than the US version (both are below). "Prometheus" takes "Alien" DNA and mixes in some of the hottest contemporary movie stars - Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba et al.  Fans can now build their excitement and anticipation with this new Project Prometheus site (which requires this password: tell abu shahrain; thanks HeyUGuys!), the Weyland Industries site (including a TED Talk by Guy Pearce) and the official Movie site; here is what appears to be the official Facebook page which has the following synopsis:

Ridley Scott, director of “Alien” and “Blade Runner,” returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

    I still have no idea what the film's about, other than that a bunch of ham actors go to another planet and find something scary. Ummm...hasn't this been done a million times already? And what's with all those quick fade-in and fade-out shots that afflict every trailer now? I can't SEE anything clearly enough to determine whether I want to see the movie or not.

    The trailer has people working at Weyland, going to a planet where they find a not-so-derelict spaceship with a not-so-dead space jockey, and ends with the same music and title visual as a famous movie Ridley Scott made years ago. If only there were some type of hints what this could be about.

    It's a prequel to Alien.
