Directed by
Ridley Scott

Ridley Scott's prequel to the Oscar-winning Alien series.

In 2089, archaeologists Charlie Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green) and Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) uncover a star map, which appears to give clues to the origins of humanity. In a mission funded by billionaire CEO Peter Weyland (Guy Pearce), the duo form part of a team who embark on a space voyage to find the 'Engineers', mysterious beings thought to be the ancestors of man.

Under the watch of android David (Michael Fassbender) and, more remotely, mission director Meredith Vickers (Charlize Theron), the crew of Prometheus begin to explore the dark and dangerous terrain of distant moon LV-223, unsure of quite what they will discover.

After a wall-to-wall marketing campaign, Scott's quasi-prequel to the Oscar-winning Alien series arrived on a tidal wave of hype, and mostly fulfils expectations. In an impressive cast, Swede Rapace (the original Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) essentially steps into Sigourney Weaver's space boots; however, Prometheus is more of an ensemble effort than any of the Alien instalments.

While perhaps not quite matching the likes of Alien for suspense, Prometheus still delivers on the gripping character work and brilliantly grotesque body horror so associated with the series.
