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 in 'Prometheus'.
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."
