We are a couple months away from the premier of Prometheus, the newest Sci-Fi film by Ridley Scott. The film looks like – and has been assumed to be – a prequel to Scott’s Alien franchise, but it (apparently) has little, or nothing to do, with Xenomorph mythos. It’s (supposedly) just another Sci-Fi thriller with H.R. Giger inspired surrealism. On topic of the visual style, we have 16 new high resolution images to gawk at.
You can pleasure yourself to the recently released trailers if you like, but I think these images really allow you to appreciate the fetishistic sexual imagery that Scott is presenting. The behind-the-scene images are fun too. The pic of a lone Ridley Scott is pin-up calendar worthy.
Check out all 16 spiffy images after the jump:
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 was 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.
