Prometheus
Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender




Overview -
A team of space explorers embarks on a fantastic voyage to the edge of the universe after making a profound discovery that hints at the true origins of the human race in this belated pseudo-prequel to director Ridley Scott's 1979 sci-fi classic ALIEN. Isle of Skye, Scotland: 2089. Archeologists Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and Charlie Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green) discover a cave drawing featuring a mysterious star pattern not found in our solar system. Upon comparing the image with similar other ones found at different archeological digs all over the planet, the pair realizes that they all match perfectly. They're convinced that the image is an invitation, and set out on a high tech Weyland Industries ship called Prometheus to - just maybe - unlock the mysteries of mankind's origins on Earth. Flash forward to Christmas Day, 2093. The crew of Prometheus awakens from stasis to learn they have arrived at their destination. With highly-intelligent android David (Michael Fassbinder) assisting the mission, and chilly Weyland representative Meredith Vickers (Charlize Theron) calling the shots, Captain Janet (Idris Elba) brings the ship down to the surface, landing next to a line of awe-inspiring structures that appear to have been built by intelligent beings. But when a small crew led by Elizabeth and Charlie explore the remote planet, the artifacts they find threaten to contradict everything mankind had been taught about its origins. But there's a secret in this chamber that's lain dormant for centuries, and now that it senses life, it finally sees an opportunity to escape. If it does, the trip that was supposed to answer al of our biggest questions about life could also be the one that seals the fate of every living creature on planet Earth.

Reviews:
 "[A] visual feast of a 3D sci-fi movie....It does supply enough visual spectacle, tense action and sticky, slithery monster attacks to hit the spot with thrill-seeking audiences worldwide." - 05/30/2012 Hollywood Reporter


"This is jumbo-size science fiction, with a handsome, impermeable titanium gleam....PROMETHEUS elicits ALIEN memories for viewers who have them, but works on its own, too, as a model of a contemporary sci-fi horror pic." - 06/15/2012 Entertainment Weekly


"Michael Fassbender's David is a robot, and he steals the show. The theft is accomplished by a combination of smart writing and Mr. Fassbender's delectably minimalist technique." - 06/14/2012 Wall Street Journal


4 stars out of 4 -- "[I]t's a seamless blend of story, special effects and pitch-perfect casting, filmed in sane, effective 3-D that doesn't distract." - 06/06/2012 Chicago Sun-Times


"Theron, who has clearly found her comfort zone with ice-cold roles, is strong here....PROMETHEUS belongs to the protean Fassbender, who excels as David, the spaceship's resident android." - 06/07/2012 Los Angeles Times


3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] real science-fiction film this superbly-made, smart and satisfying throws off the light and heat of a fire stolen from heaven." - 06/02/2012 Box Office


4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] gorgeous, ambitious sci-fi blockbuster that wows with spectacle instead of primal horror." - 08/01/2012 Total Film


"[A] major plus is Michael Fassbender's performance as David, the film's most rounded and intriguing character." - 08/01/2012 Sight and Sound
