News: A Panoply Of Prometheus Pics!

The drip drip feed of pics from Ridley Scott’s Prometheus has become something of a flood in recent weeks. I’m not one for hyperbole but I’ve collected as many of these shots together as possible to give you an update of truly epic proportions. *Cough*. So, let’s get to it, shall we?

Here’s Michael Fassbender as the android David. He’s almost the ships resident butler, serving the craft and crew. In recent interviews Fassbender cited influences in his performance from Dirk Bogarde in The Servant (as suggested by Scott) to Olympic diver Greg Louganis because of “his economy of movement”.

I love this shot of Charlize Theron’s Meredith Vickers sitting on kinda retro-ish future chairs. It reminds me of Kubrick’s 2001 – A Space Odyssey. 

Here’s Noomi Rapace as Dr Elizabeth Shaw. It’s her discovery of the an ancient pictogram that leads Prometheus on its adventure to a far-flung planet.

Sean Harris is Fifield, one of the colourfully-attired, tattooed grunts who questions the starry-eyed youngsters crazy theories.

This is Rafe Spall as Millburn. I’m assuming the glasses mean he’s a science/medical officer. That’s how Hollywood works, right?

Idris Elba’s Janek is the pilot of Prometheus. He’s the equivalent of Tom Skerritt’s Dallas in Alien.

Marshall Logan-Greene is Charlie Holloway, the archeologist who, along with Shaw, discovered the pictograms pointing to life beyond our solar system.

I told you about the colourful attire…

Now it’s time for the behind-the-scenes shots. Here’s director Ridley Scott on location in Iceland. At least I presume so. I mean the location, I know that’s Ridley Scott.

Noomi Rapace looking good in shades on the set.

Rafe Spall and Sean Harris with the crew hang about outside one of the giant vehicles.

Michael Fassbender and Ridley Scott discuss something on set.

In the recent Q&A sessions about the film, Scott discussed the freedom that comes with using CGI. He said it “makes the challenge even more difficult, not in terms of craft, but in terms of competition. The action and science fiction genres have become overstuffed, since digitally, you can do anything you want.” He went on to say it all comes down to “How original are you going to be?”. Here’s hoping it rivals his original Alien.

And here’s Charlize Theron looking bad-ass with a flamethrower.

These shots were originally exclusive to the latest issue of Empire but were released to the world a few weeks later. From here on out are some pics that have been found by playing/solving the various puzzles left on the film’s viral websites. Prometheusnews.net seem particularly good at this.

Looks like Michael Fassbender’s David entering a weird room. Are those the capsules/containers we saw housing the strange moving glue from the trailers?

This is a great look at the bridge of the Prometheus. I want to play on it.

Android David lets fly with his glowing red probes.

David holds the Earth in his hands in the Star Map room.

We saw this in the trailer breakdown, it’s the rumoured Giger pyramid that didn’t make it into Alien.

Shaw shines a light on the BIG GIANT HEAD. What would we do without the BIG GIANT HEAD?

Prometheus flies skyward. Is it escaping the planet? Is that the Space Jockey’s ship in the bottom right-hand corner?

Here’s a stunning mural. I recommend you click it to see it in its full majesty. It reminds me a little of  Michelangelo’s Creation Of Adam in the Sistine Chapel. The hand of God reaching out to Adam. Here the hand is placed in… something.

And to finish, here’s an ad taken from Weyland Industries. Yup, it’s for the Prometheus (the ship, not the film).

It’s a pretty neat look at the ship though there are better schematics out there

Prometheus uses its nuclear powered ion plasma engines to blast onto our screens here in the UK from the 1st June.
