New Prometheus image released

January 16th, 2012 by bash Comments

A new image from Ridley Scott’s Prometheus has provided further clues into what we can expect from this much anticipated sci-fi film when it eventually hits cinema screens this summer.

The picture features Noomi Rapace with a couple of space jockeys behind her. But who are the space jockeys and what role do they play in the new movie?

While writer Damon Lindelof isn’t revealing those details, he did say the movie would be “epic in scope”.

“One of the filmmakers that we ended up talking about to a fair degree of redundancy was David Lean, who directed Lawrence of Arabia,” he said.

“We wanted to make the movie feel big by having the characters be small in big spaces. That connected to the larger themes we were talking about — that we’re all just these little gnats crawling around on our little planet.”

Prometheus opens this June.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
