Incoming message from the big giant head! Yep… that was reference to Third Rock From The Sun, a show I very seldom get to reference anymore. I thank the new teaser poster for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus for reminding of that 90’s sitcom gold. The movie has no connection to the show (that I know of) other than the fact that the poster features a big giant head. The poster actually looks like a vague reference to the one-sheet for Alien (hit the jump for reference). It’s basically the Alien poster with a giant stone face floating above.
We’ve been told by Ridley Scott that Prometheus has no connection to his aliens films, but clearly the old fuck has been pulling our chains. It is obviously a prequel to Alien. It explains the creation and purpose of the xenomorphs. He’s not fooling anybody. Unless, of course,…this is actually a sequel to Blade Runner and he completely mind fucked us.
Check out the full size poster below:
Prometheus is directed by Ridley Scott, written by Damon Lindelof and Jon Spaihts and stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall, Logan Marshall-Green, Guy Pearce, and Patrick Wilson. It will hit theaters on June 8, 2012.
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.
