In the highly anticipated Prometheus, director Ridley Scott re-visits the universe he introduced to moviegoers with his tense sci-fi classic Alien.
Although no one is confirming (yet) that it will be a literal prequel in continuity to his 1979 film, on the record however, Scott did reveal to Deadline that recognizable DNA from the series will appear.
“The keen fan will recognize strands of Alien’s DNA, so to speak, but the ideas tackled in this film are unique, large and provocative,” he said.
So we will have to wait and see if any actual acid blooded Xenomorphs wreck havoc with the interstellar space crew, but H.R. Giger’s signature designs will likely show up (and maybe an alien egg or two may cameo).
Though from watching this chilling epic trailer, there is enough familiar imagery to easily link it to Ellen Ripley’s saga and seamlessly place the tagline from Alien right atop of this one.
“In Space No One Can Hear You Scream”
Prometheus, starring Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba, and Patrick Wilson is set to hit theatres in 3D on June 8, 2012.
