Ridley Scott's Prometheus

The search for our beginning could lead to our end. That's the tagline adorning the first teaser poster for Ridley Scott's return to sci-fi, Prometheus, which just got a big unveil today when one of these posters was found on display at a movie theater (see here). In the meantime, our friends at ShockTillYouDrop got their hands on what looks like a better photo, but still only a photo, of the poster in high res. It looks great and we owe them thanks until Fox puts this online in full. The poster shows Charlize Theron in her suit shining a light at half of the huge head sculpture we've seen before. Other than that, it's too dark to see anything else.

Update: Here is the very nice high res version of the teaser poster, thanks to IMPAwards for uploading it.

Ridley Scott's Prometheus Teaser Poster

A team of explorers find a clue to the origins of man on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe… There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

Prometheus is directed by legendary Oscar nominated filmmaker Ridley Scott, who started it all with Alien and Blade Runner, later directing Thelma & Louise, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, Kingdom of Heaven, American Gangster, Body of Lies and Robin Hood most recently. The screenplay was originally written by Jon Spaihts (The Darkest Hour), then updated by Damon Lindelof of "Lost" and Cowboys & Aliens, Star Trek 2. Fox has Prometheus scheduled to hit theaters on June 8th, 2012 next summer. Are you ready?

funny poems at ridley scott's Prometheus? ha ha releases a bit of the tension from the discovery that would lead to our end... lol

Stevenfreestyler on Dec 15, 2011


love the giant head in the background. So convinced this has NOTHING to do with Alien now, especially after having seen the trailer and the giant head.

DaftBot on Dec 14, 2011


Have a look at the tshirt under Idris Elba's uniform, thats a Weyland Yutani logo:

BobbyK on Dec 14, 2011


well that's cool. The trailer hides so much though.

DaftBot on Dec 14, 2011


It's actually just the Weyland logo. Not sure if the Yutani merge happened yet. But still, it's related to the Alien franchise, so i'll take it.  Image...

Yea I think it's all part of the same universe, but who knows how much more... there's mysteries abound!

Alex Billington on Dec 14, 2011


Your smoking crack. I saw the trailer at comic con and it was full of Alien references. The head is new obviously but there is TON of Alien DNA in this movie....

Buzzfunk on Dec 15, 2011


Hm. Remember the pics of those coffins? Seems they might be mentioned in the original Alien(1979) script/novelization. Pretty sure I read about this on the official site or a fan site of the comming movie(incase you want to see "proof"). 

David Banner on Dec 14, 2011


well, it's ridley scott - and he's certainly has a good track record - so, i'm excited. the giant head makes the poster very interesting.

Anything Ridley is golden...well maybe not Robin Hood...or G.I. Jane.

Xerxexx on Dec 15, 2011


Or A Good Year...

rennmaxbeta on Dec 15, 2011


i'd forgotten about GI jane - what a clunker. you know, RH may not have been a "classic"......but it was an ok watch. for me, american gangster was a real letdown. but it's still RS -and 90%+ of the time he's great.

Ridley Scott is a Master, This is gonna be one of the best films next year, the best 3D experience aside from Hugo and Avatar, this and the Dark Knight Rises are gonna be the best films of the summer.

RockySullivan1938 on Dec 14, 2011


Got two heavy contenders, Prometheus and The Dark knight rises

Stevenfreestyler on Dec 15, 2011


I think Rises might make more money but personally, Nolan has nothing on Scott. Granted, Scott did make a few duds (Robin Hood) but another scifi movie coming from the guy who created ALien and Blade Runner...I can you not get excited? 

Buzzfunk on Dec 15, 2011


I still think the title of the movie blows and Ridley Scott's been extremely hit-or-miss in the past 10 years (for me at least), but I am very revved for this flick. I hope me wanting to know more about the Aliens doesnt disappoint me....

Voice of Reason on Dec 15, 2011


It does not. Read up about it what it means. It leaves for some very cool epic story opportunities. 

Buzzfunk on Dec 15, 2011


The figure in the foreground is Noomi Rapace not the gorgeous Charlize Theron. This will be THE film of 2012 for me followed by the Hobbit part 1 and TDKR. What a year to look forward to. Never understood people who think Ridley is nothing special.  He has the best eye of any director and every film is filled with quality. Oh to see The Forever War and his much desired western.

mearnsman on Dec 15, 2011


OMG. This is so beautiful. TDKR, this, Hobbit, Amazing-Spiderman... This is gonna be a great year for movies. Looks like it could top '08
