Prometheus Poster

Say what you will about the design of this poster, my first thoughts upon seeing it were "that's badass!" I've been anxiously awaiting another poster design besides that giant head that we've seen reused over and over on all the marketing since. This is the first alternate design I've seen for Ridley Scott's Prometheus and I like it; I love the explosion, all the action and characters in motion, no floating heads, the almost fish-eye curvature of the image, it's awesome. This was just debuted by LFS Cinema in Malaysia on their Facebook, which means I hope we're going to see more final artwork like this to come in the next few weeks. Check it!

Thanks again to Lotus Five Star Cinema via RecentMoviePosters for unveiling the poster, seen in full below.

Prometheus International 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, also 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 set to hit theaters in 3D starting June 8th this summer. Visit Weyland Corp.

I wonder if two space ships crash in the movie.

Everything about the Prometheus marketing campaign has been perfect. At this point, the film absolutely must match that. I have no doubt that it will.

Fingers crossed that Ridley pulls it off. This film is, for me, THE most anticipated movie of summer 2012....

Unlike the Spidy posters, I fully agree with this headline

Seems like the ships crashing into each other could be a pretty big spoiler.....

i think if you watch the first two trailers trailers, you can see it happening

I guess they get stranded on the planet and in the inevitable sequel a rescue team is dispatched to find out what happened.

No, the viral marketing has been bad ass. The movie marketing has been terrible. I mean they fucking putting a huge spoiler into a poster? That's the best they can come up with? Are they trying to appeal to the 'battlenship' crowed? Absolutely worse poster ever.

OKAY, calm down, how is the explosion a big spoiler?? You see it in the trailer! Are you R-tarded?

Senor Fusion on May 17, 2012


More like Senor douche bag?  The explosion is a spoiler, because its a collision. Yes, it was in the trailer but you cannot tell me that this is the best they could come up with? It leaves no mystery, no imagination...its bland. Its trying to make sure the less IQ fortunate like yourself will see it....

Buzzfunk on May 17, 2012


I agree with Buzz... the teaser stuff at first was great, but everything after the 2nd trailer (IMO) the movie was feeling a bit over-exposed.  I have a feeling of how the movie will go and now i'll just be going to fill in the blanks left by the trailer.  If they just left the viral character featurettes (which are awesome) and they teaser I still would have been sold under the vail that this could (or couldn't) be an alien tie-in prequel.  just me.

Exactly what i meant. I thought the IMAX teaser was the perfect blend of short cuts yet giving no idea of whats the story about.  Its hard to avoid all media. I did not watch the last 3 min trailer. But i did listen to the score and read the track titles which AGAIN all have huge spoilers in em. Kinda like having "Track #8: Vader is lukes father" on there. Kinda lame... Still, have HIGH hopes...almost there!

I like the vintage look of this poster. Like the cover art of pulp sci-fi magazines from the 40's and 50's. However I believe its very misleading for by the time the ships collide there is only people left from the whole crew, both female.

J.L. on May 17, 2012


Good call on the pulp vibe of the poster....I love that type of artwork, and this poster certainly caught my eye!

Scopedog on May 17, 2012


Unless that event happens in the first 5 minutes of the film (and it's safe to assume it doesn't), this is the most fcking retarded poster I've ever seen. "Oh it's in the trailers." Some of us don't watch the trailers before the movies. Some of us go to great lengths to not have every surprise spoiled. It is hugely surprising that after all the mystery about whether it's an ALIEN film or not, how it fits in, all the initial vagueness that there is now (from what I'm told) a mountain of spoilers in the trailers and now posters. It's quite unnecessary. We're all going to see the movie. This should have been a poster for the DVD release.

 If you really want to be surprised by anything in this day and age you should know to stay the hell off the internet.

Awtan90 on May 17, 2012


Then I guess I should avoid newspapers, magazines, bus stop, billboards, cinema complexes...  This is not about the internet at all. With a bit of effort, I avoid spoilers on the net just fine. It's about the choice for a poster and personally I think it's lousy.  I can't think of another poster in recent years that blew something like this...? 

SV7 on May 17, 2012


this is a spoiler poster why would you spoil it in a poster

hansolo on May 17, 2012


In one of the trailers you see a life boat ejected from a ship as well.  I didn't look at it closely enough to see if it was Prometheus or the Space Jockey's ship.
