Ridley Scott On ‘Prometheus’ Connection With ‘Alien’; Reveals Guy Pearce’s Role
space
BAADASSSSS!   |

The nature of the connection between Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus and the original Alien film series has been the most hotly debated topic regarding the forthcoming sci-fi prequel. The domestic and international teaser trailers have featured designs and concepts seemingly derived from H.R. Giger‘s groundbreaking creations from Scott’s 1979 face-screwing, chest-bursting space shocker, including glimpses of the derelict spacecraft that set the plot of Alien in motion. But Scott and company have been pretty tight-lipped so far about whether or not Prometheus shares more than just a little DNA with its xenomorphic cinematic brethren.

In an interview with the Hungarian news website Mozinezo, Scott spoke out in regards to the character being played by Guy Pearce (L.A. Confidential, The Proposition) and gave us a little insight into just how much Prometheus figures into the origins of the Alien series.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows movie posterSherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
Directed by Guy Ritchie
Starring Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Jared Harris, Noomi Rapace, Stephen Fry, Rachel McAdams, Kelly Reily
Release Date: December 16, 2011

Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) is back, and this time he is facing the greatest challenge of his life. His former partner, Dr. John Watson (Jude Law) has moved on with his life as he prepares to wed Mary Watson (Kelly Reily). Holmes is left alone to let his mind wander between his latest inventions (which include “urban camouflage” and adrenalin shots) and ongoing investigation in crimes which nobody else even believes are even happening.

Though the story of Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows continues roughly where the first film left off, an unknown amount of time has passed. In that time, Holmes has become increasingly erratic as he obsessively tracks what he believes is an international scheme by Professor James Moriarty (Jared Harris).

Prometheus

While we haven’t seen much from this project, the promotional machine behind the upcoming Ridley Scott film Prometheus is about to start running.

ComingSoon has the first poster for the upcoming film, slated to star Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, and Charlize Theron, and it’s quite a beauty.  Seemingly inspired by the posters for Scott’s Alien and its subsequent sequels, of which this is considered a part of, the poster has a distinct sense of dread, telling the viewer that this won’t be a fun sci-fi adventure.

You can see the full Prometheus poster below.

Little is also known of the exact plot of the film and the connection it shares with Alien, but recently Scott sat down with Barbara Chai at the Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy blog and shared some small but tantalizing bits of information regarding just what the hell Prometheus is all about.
