In the distant future, two superpowers control Earth and fight each other for all the solar system's natural resources. When one side dispatches a team to a distant planet to terraform it for human colonization, the team discovers an indigenous race of bio-mechanoid killers. 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.




Prometheus, is directed by Ridley Scott and stars: Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green, Noomi Rapace, Guy Pearce, and Michael Fassbender. The film will be available on Blu-Ray and DVD October 9th.

@Prot3tor

I agree. This film should get some recognition for visual effects.., it looks amazing.

@dcjohnny

I don't have the dvd yet, but to those who do, are all those bonus scenes included in the movie now, like what they did for watchmen, or are they just in some deleted scenes section?

I finally saw it this past weekend. I have to admit I was a little disappointed.

It just seemed that the story had no structure. Just seemed like an excuse to have a movie where by the end, everyone dies but one person. It would have been nice to see them break away from that predictable formula and tread some new territory.

Maybe I just overhyped it for myself.

For being such an amazing piece of shit, I have to admit, the fx and every scene in Prometheus was beautiful and fantastic.

I worked on the sandstorm sequence on this film - for the furthest shots we had to render about 9 miles, scale wise, of sand clouds (aprox 100/120 different passes, piled on top of each other). After A LOT of tweaking and optimising, we reached a render time of 32 hours a frame (first 'rough' attempt was 78) using ours and Framestore's render farm. That sequence was started first and finished last.

Prometheus was an AMAZING Film. I loved the story, Loved the Cinematography, loved the acting. Everything I was expecting from the creator of my 2 Favorite SciFi films. Ridley is THE best scifi film maker!

One of the best movies this year! The deleted scenes on bluray were amazing some of which could have been left in.

As expected, those breakdowns are [frick]ing amazing.

SephirothUK: That should be a lot of work. Thanks for sharing, man.

Prometheus was nothing more than a really pretty wedding cake with little filling.
It was the 'Lucas' effect in full swing.
I expected more from one of my favourite film makers and was left really, really disappointed not from the ambition of scope but the complete lack of common sense from the protaganists.
Saying that, I still love his design eye and hope any sequel to this will address some of the glaring problems of Prometheus.

@dollstix

Understand your opinion, but I would not go as far as comparing Ridley to Lucas just yet. 3 strikes, then you're out. Lucas never really dabbled in the various other genres of (whether good or bad)filmmaking that Scott did over the course of his definately more artistically productive film career.

Remember it states that members of the expedition were not all hired by the same person. Raif(?) Sprawl's character was more hell bent on fame(wanted a tv show more than validation: think auditioning for x-factor versus starting a band, playing shows & trying to make it in a more organic or real way). Not to bothered by the unknown extent of the meds from 2089 that Shaw kept pumping in her, nor the reanimated head or any of the other ridiculous complaints, I look forward to the sequel.

I'm no fan of Lost(pilot only for me) or Lindelof, but from the sound of it, some folks are carrying over their Lost finale beef to this film. I understand if what I here about that show is true, but we shouldn't let that get in the way of Ridley's great sensibility of using scenery and wardrobe to tell things about the characters that over simplified dialogue would just take away from. Sorry, one of the things I love about Scott and his work is that he tells it how he's going to tell it with no exceptions.

This was not meant to scorn any opposition of this film.., I just think it got a bad reputation to some for simply being over hyped. Please make Paradise soon Ridley! Think I'd rather see that over a dip back into the world of Bladerunner(probably my favourite film).
