Ridley Scott’s “Prometheus” gets familiar new poster


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Ridley Scott changed his tune regarding “Prometheus,” saying it’s no longer a true “Alien” prequel but rather its own standalone sort of sci-fi story that may have threads of “Alien” DNA in its plotline … whatever that means.

Don’t tell that to the official “Prometheus” poster, which harkens back to Scott’s 1979 classic in style and tone. We have it below. Scott’s film might explain where the “space jockey” from his original film originated, though some fans have said they don’t need every mystery solved (see: “The Thing” prequel).

Anyway, Scott has a killer cast for his return to deep space. Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Guy Pearce and Noomi Rapace star as explorers seeking clues to humanity’s earliest days. But in the deepest, darkest corners of space, they must fend off a threat that could wipe out civilization. The tagline “The search for our beginning could lead to our end” isn’t quite as memorable as “In space no one can hear you scream,” but “Prometheus” still lands on our must-see list for 2012.

The film opens everywhere on June 8. Here’s the poster (courtesy of ShockTilYouDrop):
