If you have not heard, the man behind the original Alien is making a truly unique prequel. The film will star Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class), Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce, to name a few. The idea is truly original and it has to do with the that first alien ship that we saw in the original film.
Remember this guy...
... this huge alien race (nicknamed Space Jocky) as a link with us humans, and the humans are the one's who actually created this creature we all know and love...
... the Xenomorphs (pictured above).
Interesting. huh? This explains why they look humanoid. How so? Just wait to read the leaked plot, well the idea was by Ridley Scott and written Damon Lindelof &Jon Spaihts. The Hollywood Reporter reports that the director confirmed that Prometheus is the name of a ship (what we saw in the original Alien) “sent from earth by an all-powerful corporation of the kind familiar to fans of the Alien franchise,” and that the reference of a figure who stole fire from the gods is very deliberate.
I'm so in if this remains the solid idea. This is my favorite sci-fi franchises of all time, and I enjoyed each installment, and one can't deny that each film is unique, and all stand on there own. This addition will just add to that interesting space universe of ALIEN.
The film opens June 8, 2012.
