Comic-Con 2011: First look at Prometheus
An excited Comic-Con audience was treated to an exclusive first look at Ridley Scott’s return to the Alien universe, Prometheus.The footage – a short, snappy montage of suspenseful, atmospheric shots – was brief but featured plenty to chew over: a blond Michael Fassbender exploring mysterious biological artefacts; Charlize Theron doing naked push-ups and aiming a flamethrower at someone (or something?); a cavernous room stuffed with distinctly xenomorph-like eggs.The most remarkable aspect of the footage was how comfortably it appeared to slot into the Alien continuity – from the stunning production design (sleep chambers, Nostromo-styled spaceship corridors) to the closing title card – the word ‘Prometheus’ gradually yet strikingly revealed in a familiar angular font…Before the footage, Total Film caught up with star Theron and writer Damon Lindelof (Lost), who clarified the Alien connection…

Comic-Con 2011: First look at Prometheus

An excited Comic-Con audience was treated to an exclusive first look at Ridley Scott’s return to the Alien universe, Prometheus.

The footage – a short, snappy montage of suspenseful, atmospheric shots – was brief but featured plenty to chew over: a blond Michael Fassbender exploring mysterious biological artefacts; Charlize Theron doing naked push-ups and aiming a flamethrower at someone (or something?); a cavernous room stuffed with distinctly xenomorph-like eggs.

Before the footage, Total Film caught up with star Theron and writer Damon Lindelof (Lost), who clarified the Alien connection…

Damon Lindelof explains pseudo-Alien prequel Prometheus
Writer Damon Lindelof has spoken up about just how director Ridley Scott’s new sci-fi Prometheus fits into the Alien franchise.Originally pitched as a prequel to the first Alien movie, Prometheus changed when Lindelof was brought in to perform a re-write on the script.“It started as an Alien prequel,” Lindelof explains. “That is what everybody wanted it to be. Obviously, Ridley Scott has not made a science fiction movie in 25 years, since Blade Runner, so the idea that he’s returning to this genre is huge.“But there is a real issue which is - what is the state of the Alien franchise at this point in our lives? There has been Alien Vs Predator and all these things, and it’s been completely and totally diluted.”How to fix that? Well, go back to the very beginning and tell a completely different story.“I’ve always felt that really good prequels should be original movies.”

“But there is a real issue which is - what is the state of the Alien franchise at this point in our lives? There has been Alien Vs Predator and all these things, and it’s been completely and totally diluted.”

How to fix that? Well, go back to the very beginning and tell a completely different story.
