Science fiction fans have been anxiously awaiting director Ridley Scott's return to the genre for over a year and now the time is finally upon us! "Prometheus" opened in theatres in Europe after its world premiere in London last Thursday night and is due out in AMC Theatres in just two short days.
We had the opportunity to travel to London for the premiere as well as the European press event for the film where we were able to sit down with the director to talk about what drew him to the themes in "Prometheus" and how they relate to the present conditions in our world.
Take a look at our video interview and the synopsis for the film below.
Visionary filmmaker Ridley Scott returns to the genre he helped define, creating an original science fiction epic set in the most dangerous corners of the universe. The film takes a team of scientists and explorers on a thrilling journey that will test their physical and mental limits and strand them on a distant world, where they will discover the answers to our most profound questions and to life's ultimate mystery.
I love that they have replicated the relationships of the original TV series and they accomplished this in record time just two movies . The many nods to the old TV series , the trembles are an example , the green skinned seductress , the leaning to show sudden shifts and many more such as these . I hope they can keep making many more such films .
