Sir Ridley Scott, the renowned filmmaker who reinvented the science fiction film genre, offers his signature brand of action, thrills, scares, and much, much more. With PROMETHEUS, Scott has created an original mythology that tips its hat to elements of the original Alien. In the story a team of explorers discovers a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey aboard the spaceship Prometheus to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race. Although he has not helmed a science fiction picture in three decades (1982’s Blade Runner), Ridley Scott’s interest in the genre never abated. Having made two of the most revered genre films of all time, his return would only be triggered by a truly grand and original idea. “Over the past few decades, we’ve been ‘action filmed-out’ and ‘monster filmed-out’ and almost ‘science fiction filmed-out,” says Scott. “So the baseline question is: how original are you going to be?” “The reason I haven’t made another sci-fi film in so many years, apart from the fact I’ve been busy making other films and exploring different genres, is because frankly I haven’t come across anything worthwhile for me to do with enough truth, originality and strength. PROMETHEUS has all three.” The script that preceded PROMETHEUS started out as a prequel to Alien, but when Scott came onboard to direct and Damon Lindelof to work on the screenplay, the project evolved into a stand-alone film; you need not know anything about Alien to appreciate PROMETHEUS. Says co-screenwriter Jon Spaihts: “The most difficult thing about writing this story was that nothing was given. Everything had to be invented. In creating an entire world with Ridley Scott, I had an enormous canvas to paint on.” And co-screenwriter/executive producer Damon Lindelof says that he was “incredibly struck by just how original Ridley's vision was for this movie. It's daring, visceral
