In the last few months, the news surrounding Ridley Scott’s ‘Prometheus’ has slowly trickled out. Despite several photos, and even a few quotes from the director himself, there aren’t many details regarding the actual plot of the film (Scott says that the central metaphor of ‘Prometheus’ is about a “higher being” who challenges the gods). Unfortunately, this first poster won’t be clearing up that story problem. Still, at least it’s cool looking!
Released by Twentieth Century Fox on Wednesday, the image features a woman — or possibly a man, it’s hard to tell — walking toward a giant statue of … well, that’s hard to tell, too. Is that the “higher being” Ridley Scott has spoken of? Actually, if you look closely, it sort of resembles Darth Vader’s helmet. It also has similarities to the original ‘Alien’ poster (‘Prometheus’ is supposed to exist in the same universe as ‘Alien’).
Either way, ‘Prometheus,’ which stars Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender Guy Pearce and Idris Elba, will hit theaters on June 8, 2012, so perhaps audiences will have to wait to find out until then.
