Prometheus Featurette Goes Behind-the-Scenes with New Footage

Are you ready to go back to alien worlds with director Ridley Scott? I know I am.

Almost as exciting as the idea that Prometheus will answer many questions about Alien is the idea that Ridley Scott will once again be going into science fiction.  The man delivered two of the quintessential science films of my childhood: The aforementioned Alien and Blade Runner.  To see him return to the genre that made people sit back and take notice is just thrilling.  There are very few directors that you can use the term “visionary” for and not come off as sounding pompous, but he definitely falls into that category.

Eagle-eyed viewers will spot a few new shots in the featurette below (I do believe this is the first we’ve seen of the individual escape pod launching), but in general just enjoy a quick glimpse of Scott doing what he does best.

Prometheus opens on June 8 in the United States.
