Move over Dark Knight Rises, there’s just may be a hotter summer blockbuster for 2012! Yesterday at WonderCon, director Ridley Scott (Alien, Gladiator) finally unveiled the first full-length trailer for his sci-fi thriller, Prometheus. The film, which is an Alien prequel of sorts, follows the crew of the space ship Prometheus in 2085 as they explore an advanced alien civilization, in order to unlock the secrets of creation. In an interview with Cultbox, co-star Idris Elba gave some scoop on the project:
Elba: I’m playing a captain, I can’t say much more than that, but his name’s Captain Janek.”
What’s Ridley Scott like to work with?
“Loving it, man. It’s the second time working with him. He’s a good guy, very smart, I’m having a lot of fun working with him.”
What’s it been like working with the special effects?
“There’s a fair amount of special effects in this film, yeah. But, with Ridley, he actually prefers to do it for real. Real locations, real sets, which is really a treat for us actors.”
So there are some fairly grand sets, I imagine?
“Yes. Yes, yes, yes – definitely. I can safely say that without getting sued!”
Prometheus also stars Noomi Rapace (Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), Charlize Theron, and Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class). The movie opens nationwide June 8, 2012.
