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.

Charlize Theron, who plays a smaller-than-usual role as Vickers, says she'd rather "be a smaller character in a great film than the lead in a shitty movie," and Noomi Rapace, playing Shaw, says that Scott's "Thelma & Louise" was not only her favorite movie growing up, "Alien"'s Sigourney Weaver was her hero. “Ridley creates female characters like no one else," she says, adding, "I could be running around half naked in a scene and I never felt like he was watching me in a sexual way. He doesn’t objectify women. I adore him for that.” With roles like Eileen Wuornos in "Monster" and Lisbeth Salander in "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" behind them, it's no surprise that Theron and Rapace were thrilled to work with Scott. What actress wouldn't be?

Here's the "Prometheus" featurette, in which Theron calls Scott her "fantasy director." Also check out Michael Fassbender as David.
