In a long-awaited return to the genre that helped define him as a director, Ridley Scott returns to science fiction with his new film, Prometheus. Reportedly a prequel to Alien, the film stars Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron and rising talent Michael Fessbender.
The first reviews of Prometheus have already arrived and with only a week before its release, the film's buzz is quickly building. Prequels like this come with mixed expectations. It's exciting to see a filmmaker return to a familiar genre, but if the movie is weak, it could undermine the power of the franchise. We'll have to wait to see if this movie lives up to the sky-high expectations fans have built up for it.
