Watch: Non-Spoilery Featurette Looks at the Title Ship in 'Prometheus'

As of late, we're doing our best to stay away from the featurettes for Prometheus that might give up a little too much of the mystery surrounding Ridley Scott's return to sci-fi. Personally, the last featurette posted was one that I avoided, and I haven't watched anything new since. However, upon hearing of a new video for the film diving into the title ship itself, with no hint of spoilers and a fine focus on the practical production design by Arthur Max, I had no problem passing it on to all those parties. Ridley Scott and writer Damon Lindelof also talk about the complex and beautiful ship which heads to theaters in just under two weeks.

Here's the new featurette for Ridley Scott's Prometheus via ComingSoon:

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.

Everything about this movie looks Epic. It already has that 'classic' feel to me.  Alex, that LSOAB, enjoy the London screening. Please, please post your initial reaction but keep in mind, don't kill the buzz for those who have to wait another week.....

Not sure why I need to keep watching this stuff, was hooked the second I heard R.Scott was making a new SciFi movie.

It will be interesting to see how the technology difference between this and later Alien movie is explained

about how a 50s car looks different than an 80s car, the 50s is more stylish but the 80s is more effective... think like the prequel star wars movie, it looked all shiny then slowly looked more like they could take a beating as the stories headed towards the originals....

Well, from what's mentioned in the vid the Prometheus is pretty much the pinnacle of tech and the flagship of its kind, whereas the Nostromo is essentially an old mining vessel.

Brandon Carey on May 29, 2012


there's no real possible explanation.  the tech in prometheus is far far far more advanced than anything we've seen in alien or aliens... and in aliens, we got to see life on earth. it's a prequel with the obligatory prequelitis - far better tech than the chronological sequels.

Why would it be explained? Not everything has to. Its only a movie..enjoy it as a standalone mythology within the Alien universe...

Buzzfunk on May 29, 2012


The look of the ship from the outside reminds me of the Serenity from Firefly, but with four engines. I guess that makes sense considering their inspiration for it was an insect of some kind.

"new and fresh"... look just like the Nebakanezer from The Matrix but bigger.

Why do you keep trolling?  http://www.dvdcollections.co.uk/forums/discussion/1872/matrix-ultimate-nebuchadnezzar-boxset-bluraydvd-234/ Does this look anything like the Prometheus? Besides that its a ship..

Buzzfunk on May 29, 2012


Not really... the Nebakanezer looked essentially like a sea-creature. Almost like a sting ray mixed with a whale or something. The prometheus looks more like something out of Tiberian Sun. Reminds me more of the GDI ship than anything, only the Prometheus looks far more impressive and adaptable.

Just saw the movie, you're in for a treat my friends 😉 !

OH!!!!! I just found out Prometheus starts showing this thursday in Norway!!!

David Banner on May 29, 2012


This is set in 2085. Ain't NO WAY a ship anything like this will ever be built by then. This is supposed to be an interstellar craft (FTL?) too. We are so far behind in the space sciences we may as well be just starting out again. Correct me if I'm wrong. 

Steve on May 30, 2012


Correct. It's all nonsense. By then we may as well be living among the ruins of the industrial civilisation - a very short episode in the history of our species. Our infrastructure is already crumbling. We're bunkrupt and our resource base is shrinking fast. Most of us can't see it yet. We're too busy playing with our i-pods.

70 years is the span between the Wright brothers first fly and the space shuttle. It's a lot of time... and a lot can happen. Anyway, I must agree that's a very optimistic view. I'm sure they had to assume this date to insert this story in the original Alien timeline.

Rui on May 30, 2012


Seen the movie yesterday. It's a visual treat but the storyline is quiet messy. Nonetheless it's entertainment at its best, especially in 3D.
