Prometheus costume department choosing... watches?

It's not really a headlining story, but I decided to post this anyway. With all the latest casting news surely one must wonder what these stars will actually look like in Prometheus. Like what their watches may look like, perhaps?

Marcus Fairs, editor of design magazine Dezeen, tweeted today that

"Pinewood studios have been in touch - they want to borrow some of our watches for the new Ridley Scott movie".

Dezeen magazine showcases architecture, interiors and design from artists from all over the world, and they even run their own watch store.
It's hard to tell exactly which watches the Prometheus costume team are interested in, but there are a few that stand out as particularly futuristic and which could quite easily fit into a future world envisaged by Ridley Scott. The VOID V01, for instance?

The Prometheus costume team is currently hard at work at Pinewood studios in London, and so far mainly consists of the same people who costumed Captain America and X-Men: First Class.
Sam Keyte (costume maker), Jacqueline Mulligan (assistant costume cutter) and Dominic Young (costume cutter).

Here is an article about one of the artists working on the film, with some conceptual art, that may or may not be used in the film:

Possible Concept Art For 'Prometheus' Is Uncovered
By Melissa Molina on February 19, 2011

Possible Concept Art For 'Prometheus' Is Uncovered The casting is underway for Ridley Scott's "Prometheus," and although not much of the story for the once-"Alien" prequel isn't known, the concept art may be. Some unknown concept art pieces emerged on Matthew Savage's website, and this artist is said to be one of those credited with putting together some work for "Prometheus."

Along with that, there's a couple of other places that are showcasing some props that will be appearing in "Prometheus." There's a certain style of watches that they're looking at along with some rather stylish furniture.

Check out the rest of the concept art pieces below and let us know what you think.

Space Jockey Possibly in Prometheus with Animatronic Head
February 21, 2011

Pre-production on Ridley Scott's new sci-fi thriller Prometheus is in full swing and no matter how much he wants us to believe it only has "strands of DNA" from when the project was a prequel to Alien before Lost's Damon Lindelof came on board to rework the script, evidence continues to mount that the two films are set in the same universe.

The latest rumor to hit the 'Net claims a source has confirmed that the enormous and iconic Space Jockey seen in a decrepit form in the beginning of Alien will be a fully realized being in Prometheus. Not only that but the original Alien film designer H.R. Giger is on board as a consultant and is advising on the creation of a living and breathing Space Jockey.

This source goes on to report that the Space Jockey has been built as an eight-foot animatronic that will be meshed with CGI to create the finished effect. But apparently the Space Jockey ship will be piloted by a giant semi-human head. I'm not sure what to make of that as it sounds a bit wonky, even for Ridley Scott. Unless the semi-human head being referenced is actually the Space Jockey. It's hard to tell based on how the scoop is written.

As of now the Prometheus core cast has been partially filled. Confirmed cast members include Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows) and Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class) and Charlize Theron. Scoot McNairy is reportedly in negotiations for a part as well.

Integral ‘Alien’ Character Possibly in Ridley Scott’s ‘Prometheus’
Published on February 21, 2011 by Nick Newman

After Michael Fassbender‘s recent comments that claimed Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus is still a prequel to Alien, this next piece of news seems to perpetuate that notion even further. A report from SkyNews (via BadassDigest) claims that the character known as the Space Jockey (pictured above), who was in the first Alien film and who was rumored to be an integral part of the once-planned prequel, will in fact be appearing in Prometheus.

Quick reminder on the character: the Space Jockey is seen briefly in the first Alien, when the crew of the Nostromo lands on the alien planet. He’s housed in a ship on said planet, being very large, skeletal in appearance and having, most distinctively, a ribcage that appears to have been exploded outward from the inside.

Anyway, H.R. Giger, the man who designed the original film’s creatures, was rumored to be attached to this when it was still considered a prequel. The same report at SkyNews says that the character’s not only appearing, but will be “designed under the guidance” of Giger, who “is only working in an advisory capacity.” What’s most interesting about this rumor is the revelation that he’ll be an eight-foot tall animatronic, which is not something you often see in Hollywood today, if at all, as CGI is the route most filmmakers and studios decide to take.

Something else that sounds pretty unusual relates to a new character. The same story also claims that the pilot of the Space Jockey’s ship will be “an enormous semi-human head, which unlike the previously mentioned character, will be created through CGI. The idea of that is so crazy in a 70′s sci-fi kind of way that I find it difficult to not appreciate.

Still, I’m kind of disappointed. I was really looking forward to Prometheus being its own, original film set in a new universe, and Fassbender‘s comments about this and Alien having a “connecting vein” left me disheartened enough. Now, the presence of the Space Jockey makes this seem like it’ll be a full-on prequel, or, at the very least, something with even stronger connections than we thought and/or hoped. I’m still excited for it, sure, but my anticipation has lowered to a point that wasn’t much higher than a few months ago.

What do you think about these character appearances, and do you wish this was more of an original film than it’s looking like it will be?

Space Jockey Makes An Appearance In Prometheus!
Published on February 21, 2011 by Martyn Conterio

This is one production film fans will be looking forward to in 2012. Prometheus may or may not be an Alien film but its director – Sir Ridley Scott – says it contains the DNA of the classic sci-fi horror series. More intriguing details have emerged from the production via Sky Movies and they go back and refer to what we know as the Space Jockey.

An insider (aren’t they always?) revealed the Space Jockey will definitely be making an appearance and it’ll be in animatronic form:

“I’ve had further confirmation that the Space Jockey creature is definitely in Prometheus and has been built as an eight foot animatronic. I’ve also had it confirmed that HR Giger is working on the project but only in an advisory capacity. By the way, people are going to be in for a shock when they sit down to watch Prometheus and there’s an enormous semi-human head piloting a spaceship.”

Sounds like a strange and interesting image and one dreamed up by the mad Swiss artist whose iconic and very sexual imagery birthed a movie icon. No doubt some CG will be involved somewhere in bringing it to life as befitting a major blockbuster.

Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace and Charlize Theron will star and it’s also rumoured Monsters actor Scoot McNairy is being considered for a part, too. The script has been worked on by Damon Lindelof. Last year Scott told Deadline and he had this to say on the project:

“While Alien was indeed the jumping off point for this project, out of the creative process evolved a new, grand mythology and universe in which this original story takes place. The keen fan will recognize strands of Alien’s DNA, so to speak, but the ideas tackled in this film are unique, large and provocative. I couldn’t be more pleased to have found the singular tale I’d been searching for, and finally return to this genre that’s so close to my heart.”

So a giant semi-human head piloting a ship. Who dreamed up this project – Salvador Dali’s ghost? Prometheus opens in 2012 and film fans cannot wait!

Will Ridley Scott’s ‘Prometheus’ Feature A Giant Animatronic Character?

Posted on Monday, February 21st, 2011 by Russ Fischer

What can we believe about Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus? The film stars Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender, and is scheduled for June 2012. The film began life as an Alien prequel scripted by Jon Spaihts, but mutated into Prometheus when Damon Lindelof rewrote the script. After that mutation Fox announced the film as taking place in an all-new universe, seeming to definitively seperate it from all things Alien.

But rumors cropped up that the classic Alien xenomorph would be in the film along with a live version of the space jockey seen in the first act of Alien. The history of the latter character is part of what sent Ridley Scott on the Alien prequel path in the first place. And Michael Fassbender has said that Prometheus is “absolutely” connected to Alien. Now there is further word about the presence of one of Alien‘s most visually striking elements.

The report comes from Sky Movies (via Badass Digest), which isn’t a source that comes out of the gate with a lot of scoops. But they were one of the early voices saying that Prometheus is actually far more tethered to Alien than anyone at Fox was letting on, and that seems to be very much the case.

Sky says that not only will the space jockey be in Prometheus, but that it is being built as an eight-foot animatronic effect, and that HR Giger is consulting — only consulting — on the character. (The source is “an insider.”) We’d heard that Mr. Giger might be part of the crew, but the notion of a giant animatronic effect is pleasantly surprising. Animatronics are expensive and not always reliable, and have largely been supplanted by other effects technology. But they give something very real and present for actors to play against, and that can be a great thing. I’d be quite happy if this report is true.

Sky also says that their insider confirms the presence of a giant head that captains a ship in the film, printing “By the way, people are going to be in for a shock when they sit down to watch Prometheus and there’s an enormous semi-human head piloting a spaceship.”

While I celebrated the notion that Fox might have let Ridley Scott and Damon Lindelof go off the map with Prometheus by agreeing to finance an original sci-fi picture rather than something related to Alien, I can’t say that I’m not intrigued by all these hints that Prometheus is still, in some way, an Alien prequel. If nothing else, putting some distance between this film and the classic but shopworn series suggests that the creators have something very different in mind. What say you — were you more excited about the film when it looked like a unique story, or do the rumored ties to Alien make it more appealing?

Will The Space Jockey Be In Ridley Scott's Prometheus?

published: 2011-02-21 15:42:59 Author: Eric Eisenberg

Despite writing up multiple stories about Ridley Scott's Prometheus, I still can't make heads or tails of it. For the longest time the project was discussed as a prequel to Scott's 1979 horror/sci-fi classic Alien, but then, in January, it was announced that it would be an original project. Since then some strange stories have come out about the project, such as Michael Fassbender playing an android, much like Ian Holm, Lance Henriksen, and Winona Ryder in the Alien series, and rumored plot details have said that the xenomorphs are still a crucial part of the story. This new piece of news isn't doing anything to make things clearer.

Sky Movies, the same source that reported the above mentioned plot details, has learned from an unnamed "insider" that the production is in the midst of constructing an animatronic Space Jockey, as first seen in the opening of Alien. The story also says the the construction is being overseen by artist and xenomorph designer H.R. Giger, who has been attached to the project since late December. There are also plans to have an alien that is just a "giant head" piloting a ship, though that effect is expected to be done with CGI. The animatronic is described as being eight feet tall and the head is "semi-human."

I can't make heads or tails of this at all. Is this an alien prequel or not? Is it a spin-off? If these reports are true, then there is definitely a tie-in to the Alien franchise and it wouldn't be fair to call it an original project. It would be really nice to have some answers.

Ridley Scott Calls on Old Friend to Be in Prometheus
Source: Sky
February 21, 2011

The same site that said Ridley Scott's Prometheus will be much closer to the Alien series than we were all led to believe (the plot might have something to do with Alien DNA), is now reporting the Space Jockey, seen in the first film, will be making an appearance.

Sky, who broke the news, has a source who claims the Space Jockey will be pulled off with animatronics. Awesome for those who still appreciate practical effects!

I might be reading into it, but I believe star Michael Fassbender also hinted at the presence of the Space Jockey when he said he needed to get in prime physical shape to "be as tall as I can standing next to those aliens!"

The Space Jockey is reportedly going to be eight feet tall.

Sky's source goes on to say, "I've also had it confirmed that HR Giger is working on the project but only in an advisory capacity. By the way, people are going to be in for a shock when they sit down to watch Prometheus and there's an enormous semi-human head piloting a spaceship."

That's a reference to an earlier news item which revealed that the ship was, yes, piloted by a giant head.

The Space Jockey may have been written off in the Alien film series after the first installment, but Dark Horse comics' first Alien mini-series brought the weird race of creatures back.

More Prometheus Chatter - About Those Aliens ...

Some more chatter has found its way online pertaining to Ridley Scott's Alien prequel, now titled Prometheus. Wondering just how the Xenomorphs will be introduced? Wonder no longer.

According to a source close to the production who spoke with Bleeding Cool:

[Prometheus] "has the Alien aliens in it. The catch, though, is that you might not recognize them – at least, not at first. Remember how the alien took on canine qualities after gestating in a dog? You may even suppose that the first film’s alien was so recognizably humanoid because it had grown in a human. The same applies here: generation by generation, the creature mutates. As Prometheus begins, the xenomorph is not too recognizable. Sure, it has that alien DNA that Scott and Fassbender teasingly referred to, but it’s missing … well, it’s missing human DNA. Or dog DNA. All you have to do is imagine how it might look if it were to mix DNA with another alien species ... and I think we’re starting to work it all out."

Here's our guess ... The alien erupts from the chest of the rumored to be returning Space Jockey and takes on its characteristics. We'll find out soon enough.

Prometheus stars Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender. Look for it in theatres on June 8th, 2012.

Coming Attractions: ‘Prometheus’: will it offer an ‘Alien’ adventure?

Published: Sunday, May 01, 2011

By Rachel Whitaker
Columnist

View and purchase photos
I have just discovered something very exciting: Ridley Scott, the director of “Alien” (1979), is making a prequel to his classic sci-fi film! Titled “Prometheus,” the movie is currently in the filming stage and is set to release June 8, 2012.

Stars include Michael Fassbender (“Jane Eyre,” “Jonah Hex,” “Centurion,” “Inglourious Basterds,” “300” and “Band of Brothers” [TV miniseries]), Charlize Theron (“The Road,” “The Burning Plain,” “North Country,” “Monster” and “The Italian Job”) and Noomi Rapace (Lisbeth Salander in the original “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and its sequels).

The screenplay is written by Jon Spaihts (“The Darkest Hour”) and Damon Lindelof (“Crossing Jordan” [TV series], “Lost” [TV series], “Cowboys & Aliens” and the recently announced, as-yet-untitled “Star Trek” sequel).

As for the film’s plot, movieinsider.com describes it as a prequel “in which the crew of a commercial towing ship returning to Earth is awakened and sent to respond to a distress signal from a nearby planetoid. The crew discovers too late that the signal generated by an empty ship was meant to warn them.”

According to a statement that Twentieth Century Fox put out, however, the movie isn’t a prequel or even part of the “Alien” franchise. Based on movieinsider.com’s synopsis, I find that hard to believe.

On the website screenrant.com, Scott describes the new film as being an original story set in a new universe with a “grand mythology.” There will be elements of “Alien,” though the specifics are being kept under wraps.

But then on MTV’s website, in an interview with Michael Fassbender, the actor claims that “Prometheus” is definitely part of the “Alien” series.

Clearly, there’s some confusion. “Prometheus” may or may not be a prequel to “Alien.” It may or may not be directly related to the “Alien” franchise. I’m not sure what’s accurate at this point. Perhaps we’re being purposefully misled in an effort to keep the plot as much of a surprise as possible.

Whatever the truth is, I’m sure it will be good, and I can’t wait to see it.

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/ridley-scott-michael-fassbender-noomi-206321

The director and cast offer a few details about the highly anticipated sci-fi film to European exhibitors.

Director Ridley Scott and stars Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace touched down at CineEurope Tuesday night to fire up enthusiasm among European exhibitors for their highly anticipated 3D sci-fi film Prometheus.

Scott and his two top cast members flew directly to CineEurope from the Prometheus set in Pinewood, London but did not bring any footage from the new, top secret project. They remained cagey during a Q&A session, only letting a few details of the film slip out. Scott acknowledged that Prometheus, while not a direct prequel to Alien, occupies the same general universe, saying the picture was inspired by a desire to explore the mystery of the "space jockey" the giant fossilized creature with the burst-open chest seen in the first Alien movie but never explained.

Scott also confirmed that the film's title is the name of a space ship sent from earth by an all-powerful corporation of the kind familiar to fans of the Alien franchise. The mythical reference - in Greek mythology, Prometheus stole fire from the gods to give to man -- is deliberate.

"The (space) journey, metaphorically, is about a challenge to the gods," Scott said. But Scott's ambitions with Prometheus go far beyond simply restarting a hit franchise. The British director said the film's storyline, and script by David Lindelof, was partially inspired by the writings of legendary Swiss sci-fi writer Eric van Daniken.

Van Daniken, author of 1968 bestseller Chariot of the Gods, is best known as the first proponent of the so-called ancient astronaut theory, which holds that aliens kick-started civilization on earth. "NASA and the Vatican agree that is almost mathematically impossible that we can be where we are today without there being a little help along the way," Scott said. "That's what we're looking at (in the film), at some of Eric van Daniken's ideas of how did we humans come about."

Fassbender and Rapace were even cagier about revealing details of the Prometheus plot. Fassbender did hint his character, David, might be a version of the infamous corporate-designed android that plays a pivotal role in all Alien films.

Rapace, the Swedish star of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, would only say that shooting with Scott has meant "hard and sweaty" days and that the 73-year-old director "still has more energy than all of us combined." 20th Century Fox plans to bow Prometheus worldwide next summer.

Prometheus Plot Synopsis Leaked

June 30th, 2011
0
Written by: Amy Curtis

There’s naturally a lot of buzz surrounding Ridley Scott’s upcoming Alien prequel Prometheus, and plot elements have been kept tightly under wraps. Now a supposed plot synopsis of Prometheus has been leaked to i09 by an inside source, and it includes talk of “alien gods” and an environmental message.

Here’s what an insider close to the Prometheus production leaked to i09. Keep in mind this is not an official release so there’s no telling if this is an accurate synopsis, or some elaborate misdirection.

Earth. Year 2058. Archaeological digs in Africa reveal alien artifacts that humans were genetically engineered by a advanced alien race (space jockeys). These “Alien Gods” also terraformed Earth in order to make it habitable for their human creations. Amongst finds are coordinates to the Alien God’s home-world, to Paradise. Months later the Weyland Corp launch the spaceship PROMETHEUS and his crew, into deep space to make first contact. Thanks to faster than light travel a few years later the PROMETHEUS enters the Zeta Riticuli star system. Humans are greeted by their makers, then transported further into space to a scary yet fascinating world. The Alien Gods are proud of their “children”, their first creation to reach such levels of intelligence.

As a reward they share bits of their astonishing bio-based technologies with the humans. But for one crew member of the Prometheus it’s not enough. In a treacherous act he steals the “bio-source code” to Terraforming, a technology at the origin of all Gods’ power, that could make humans equal to the gods. The Alien Gods may be scientists but are also ruthless conquerors, destroyers of worlds who will not accept humans as equals. They unleash on the escaping human crew their favorite bio-weapon, a creature used to “clean up” worlds before colonization. But something goes wrong in the process and humans manage to turn the bio-weapon against their makers. Giving birth to a smarter, nastier, bigger breed of gut eating creatures. Creatures that will be the demise of Paradise. What’s left of the Prometheus crew manages to escape the doomed planet.

On their trail a survivor Alien God in very familiar ship with one ultimate mission. Bring the wrath of the Gods to Earth.

Not only is this Scott’s first sci-fi film since the seminal Blade Runner in the 80s, but it is a film set in the uber popular Alien universe, a continually spawning franchise that has been begging for a fresh installment. I’m not sure about this synopsis. I’m kind of hoping it’s not true. There are some interesting elements to the story above, but the whole “alien gods” shtick sounds trite.

Maybe that’s just me though, what do you think?

Prometheus stars Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron and Idris Elba. It will be released on June 8, 2012.

Ridley Scott, Michael Fassbender, and Noomi Rapace Talk PROMETHEUS

Today is Speak in Broad Strokes About Prometheus Day. For some, it may be a cause for celebration since the project thrived for months on misinformation and double speak. First we believed it to be a strict Alien prequel, then two prequels, then one prequel again. Oh, but it isn’t really an Alien prequel, except that it kinda is in the sense that it’s set in the same universe prior to the events of Alien, as scripter Damon Lindelof emphasized earlier today. Glean from that what you will.

In part two of SIBSAP Day, Ridley Scott and Prometheus stars Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace attended CineEurope tonight to sell European exhibitors on the prospects of the 3D sci-fi project. Production is underway in London, but they obviously didn’t bring any footage or images or anything that would reveal what Prometheus is literally about. But the trio did speak to the themes of the movie. The first hint of a prequel centered on the question “Who the hell was that space jockey?“ Scott conceded that the desire to explore that mystery inspired him to revisit the Alien universe. He attributed further inspiration to sci-fi author Erich von Däniken, a proponent of the “ancient astronaut” theory that credits civilization on earth to extraterrestrials:

“The (space) journey, metaphorically, is about a challenge to the gods… NASA and the Vatican agree that is almost mathematically impossible that we can be where we are today without there being a little help along the way. That’s what we’re looking at (in the film), at some of Erich von Däniken’s ideas of how did we humans come about.”

That is an intriguing idea. In Greek mythology, Prometheus is a Titan that stole fire from the gods and gave it to the mortals. Scott confirmed at CineEurope the title refers to a space ship sent from Earth by a powerful corporation, possibly for the purpose of terraforming.

THR doesn’t provide a direct quote from Fassbender, instead offering this maddening paraphrase:

“Fassbender did hint his character, David, might be a version of the infamous corporate-designed android that plays a pivotal role in all Alien films.”

Rapace restricted herself to talk about the production: she described her work as “hard and sweaty” and claimed the 73-year-old Scott “still has more energy than all of us combined.”

Prometheus is scheduled for release on June 8, 2012.

We finally learn what PROMETHEUS is

by: The HORROR Man source: Collider

Ridley Scott finally opens up a bit and tells us what Prometheus is and whether or not in delves into the Alien mythos or not.

According to Scott in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter from CineEurope, the film’s title is the name of a spaceship sent from earth by an all-powerful corporation of the kind familiar to fans of the Alien franchise. The mythical reference — in Greek mythology Prometheus stole fire from the gods to give to man — is deliberate. “The (space) journey, metaphorically, is about a challenge to the gods,” Scott said.

So Prometheus is the name of the ship, but is it an Alien movie? Scott acknowledged that Prometheus, while not a direct prequel to Alien, occupies the same general universe, saying the picture was inspired by a desire to explore the mystery of the “space jockey“, the giant fossilized creature with the burst-open chest seen in the first Alien movie but never explained.

Star Michael Fassbender was also on hand at CineEurope, and he hinted that his character, David, might be a version of the infamous corporate-designed android that plays a pivotal role in all Alien films.

Like always we didn’t learn a whole lot but hey, it was a nice little tease right?

. Prometheus stars Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Guy Pearce, and Michael Fassbender. Look for it in theaters on June 8th, 2012.

Tuesday, June 28, 2011
10 Things That Matter at CineEurope...
With international box office booming, the Amsterdam-based annual exhibition confab will tackle Hollywood's hot topics.

1. Prometheus
Ridley Scott will screen the first footage of his red-hot and ultra-secret sci-fi horror film June 28. He has been guarding the Prometheus plot like it was nuclear launch codes, so expect CineEurope attendees to go all Comic-Con for the first peek at the 2012 feature starring Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo star Noomi Rapace.

2. Titanic 3D Footage
CineEurope has proved a lucky charm for James Cameron, who screened footage of Titanic and Avatar here before going on to become king of the world ... and king of Pandora. This year, Cameron is back with exclusive footage of Titanic 3D, the stereoscopic remastered version of his 1997 smash hit. Fox will release Titanic 3D worldwide April 6, 2012, to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Titanic disaster. Footage will be screened in the evening June 28.

3. Chris Dodd/Ad Weststrate Keynote
The president of the MPAA and its European counterpart, UNIC, will try to rally the troops with state-of-the-business keynotes during the confab's opening ceremony the morning of June 28. After his timid remarks on China while at a film festival in Shanghai recently, will the former senator ramp up pressure on the Chinese government to become more open to Western exhibitors?

4. Cinema of the Future Panel
3-D may be showing signs of fatigue in some markets, but as this year's international exhibitor of the year, Moshe Greidinger puts it, "we are still in the midst" of the digital revolution. The switch over from 35 mm to hard drives is changing everything from booking and programming to piracy concerns. This is the panel you want to catch to ensure your business model isn't put up against the wall.

5. The Emergence of the Russian Market
Russia has become the fourth member of Europe's exclusive billion-dollar club -- named for how much a territory's box office makes annually -- alongside the U.K., France and Germany. Russia's growth has been breathtaking: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides earned more there during its first weekend -- an estimated $28.6 million -- than the total Russia take of the previous installment in the franchise. "Russian box office is booming; it's unbelievable," says CineEurope managing director Robert Sunshine. "And I think it is going to sustain that growth. The territory is still very under-theatered."

6. Blockbuster Previews
Lackluster box office this year has whetted appetites ahead of CineEurope. Euro exhibitors hope the studios' summer slates -- which include surefire franchise hits such as the final Harry Potter installment and tentpole hopefuls Green Lantern and Cowboys & Aliens -- will revive receipts in the second half, allowing theaters to finish the year with a bang. Attendees will get a better idea of how the summer will shape up thanks to sneak previews of Paramount's Transformers: Dark of the Moon (in RealD 3D), DreamWorks' robot boxing flick Real Steel and Warner Bros.' raunchy comedy Horrible Bosses.

7. In Praise of Harry Potter
Much of Euro exhibitors' hopes will be laid at the feet of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 because the series recently became the biggest worldwide franchise of all time with $6.4 billion in global box-office receipts, $4.37 billion of that coming from the international marketplace. The final entry in the Potter series, and the only one shot in 3D, screens exclusively June 30 at CineEurope. In addition to a sneak preview, the conference will celebrate by handing three of its top honors to Potter alumni. David Heyman, producer on all eight Potter movies, will receive CineEurope's Producer of the Decade award, and two Warner Bros. International execs who have been key in driving the franchise's success overseas -- Nancy Carson, executive vp distribution, and Thomas Molter, senior vp international distribution -- will receive the International Distributors of the Year honor.

8. The Future of VOD
European exhibitors group UNIC, for the first time the official sponsor of CineEurope, has come out strongly against plans by some studios to introduce a premium VOD window that, critics contend, will erode theatrical revenue -- a concern that's echoed by American exhibitors. It isn't on the official CineEurope itinerary, but premium VOD is certain to be a major talking point in closed-door meetings between studio execs and theater owners.

9. The Millennium Trilogy Seminar
European blockbuster franchises are about as common as Dutch downhill skiers, but Sweden's Millennium Trilogy -- The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, based on the Stieg Larsson best-sellers -- are proof the continent can erect its own tentpoles. The trilogy has grossed more than $214 million worldwide, launched the international careers of stars Noomi Rapace and Michael Nyqvist and spawned a Hollywood remake by David Fincher. Millennium producers Yellow Bird will receive the confab's European Box Office Achievement Award and reveal some of the secrets of their success during a panel discussion June 29.

10. 20th Anniversary Party
Three years ago, the cloud of the worldwide financial collapse hung over Europe's box office. Things didn't bode well as the continent's premier exhibitors event finished its second decade. But the champagne will be popping June 28 at the Amsterdam RAI's Diamond Lounge for CineEurope's 20th birthday bash. Box office is generally surging, digital conversion is speeding up, and European exhibitors are suddenly optimistic. "It's great to have our 20th anniversary at a time like this, when business is picking up, distributors and exhibitors are working closer together and everyone is in a good mood," says Sunshine.

Thank you Hollywood Reporter

Synopsis for Ridley Scott's Sci-Fi Movie Prometheus - Spoilers, Plus Damon Lindelof Talks Alien Prequel Rumors
Features

By GustavoLeao / 03:03, 3 July 2011 / General Genre/SciFi

20th Century Fox has released the official synopsis for director Ridley Scott's sci-fi film Prometheus, starring Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron, and co-written by Star Trek XII writer Damon Lindelof.

The film is described as follows:

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.

Prometheus is scheduled for a June 8, 2012 release.

Plus, yesterday a more detailed non-official synopsis has surfaced at Screen Rant, (beware of potential spoilers) and here it is :

Earth. Year 2058.

Archaeological digs in Africa reveal alien artifacts that humans were genetically engineered by a advanced alien race (space jockeys). These "Alien Gods" also terraformed Earth in order to make it habitable for their human creations. Amongst finds are coordinates to the Alien God's home-world, to Paradise. Months later the Weyland Corp launch the spaceship PROMETHEUS and his crew, into deep space to make first contact. Thanks to faster than light travel a few years later the PROMETHEUS enters the Zeta Riticuli star system. Humans are greeted by their makers, then transported further into space to a scary yet fascinating world. The Alien Gods are proud of their "children", their first creation to reach such levels of intelligence.

As a reward they share bits of their astonishing bio-based technologies with the humans. But for one crew member of the Prometheus it's not enough. In a treacherous act he steals the "bio-source code" to Terraforming, a technology at the origin of all Gods' power, that could make humans equal to the gods. The Alien Gods may be scientists but are also ruthless conquerors, destroyers of worlds who will not accept humans as equals. They unleash on the escaping human crew their favorite bio-weapon, a creature used to "clean up" worlds before colonization. But something goes wrong in the process and humans manage to turn the bio-weapon against their makers. Giving birth to a smarter, nastier, bigger breed of gut eating creatures. Creatures that will be the demise of Paradise. What's left of the Prometheus crew manages to escape the doomed planet.

On their trail a survivor Alien God in very familiar ship with one ultimate mission.

Bring the wrath of the Gods to Earth.

Finally, at Alien Prequel News you can check out the entire video interview with Trek XII co-writer Lindelof, conducted by Kevin Pollak where he discusses his career and at some length, discusses Prometheus.

When asked in the interview if Prometheus is a prequel to Alien, Damon Lindelof replies;

“Or is it? I think should be the tag line as opposed to ‘In space nobody can hear you scream’, it should be ‘Prometheus: …or is it?’ (laughs)

It started as an Alien prequel as that’s what everybody wanted it to be. Obviously Ridley Scott hasn’t made a science fiction movie in 25 years since Blade Runner, so the idea that he’s returning to this genre is huge.

But there’s a real issue which is what is the state of the Alien franchise at this point in our lives? Now it’s Alien versus Predator and all these things and it’s been completely and totally diluted.

I’ve always felt really good prequels should be original movies. And the sequel to those prequels should not be the movie that already exists. Because, all due respect to anybody who makes a prequel, why would you ruin the greatest twist in the history of movie cinema?

‘Luke I am your father’… By showing me three movies (Star Wars prequels) that basically spoil that surprise. You could do movies that take place before Star Wars, but I don’t need to see the story of the Skywalker clan. Show me something else that I can’t guess the possible outcome of. There’s no suspense and inevitability.

So a true prequel should essentially precede the incidents of the original film, but be about something entirely different, feature different characters, have an entirely different theme although it takes place in that same world.

That was my fundamental feeling about what this movie wanted to be.

And truth be told, it wasn’t script doctoring in the strictest sense because the draft that existed before I came on was written by this guy named Jon Spaihts, who is very good! And there are a lot of things in Prometheus that were hatched by Jon Spaihts and that were written by Jon Spaihts.

And I feel like somewhere in the media reconstruction of this story the tale is I come in and pitch an entirely new movie and it’s so original that everything else gets thrown out and THAT’s what we’re doing.

In my brain that’s not exactly what happened.

But I also do feel that this is the movie that I would want to see as a fanboy take place in that Alien universe that precedes the events of the original Alien, but is not necessarily burdened by tropes of that franchise with facehuggers and chestbursters and all that stuff that I love. But we’ve seen it before, so can I do something different this time.

And that’s the movie that Ridley wanted to make.”

Prometheus details finally emerge
Posted on Jul 3rd 2011 by CB Droege

Ridley Scott’s new film actually has a full cast and synopsis.

We’ve been getting trickling reports about Prometheus for a while now, and we’ve started to get a pretty good look at the cast, as it rolls in, despite not having any idea what parts they will be playing.

So far, we’ve got Charlize Theron (Æon Flux), Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green, Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class), and the just recently announced Ben Foster (X-Men: The Last Stand).

Here’s the official synopsis:

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.

That’s not a lot to go on, but we do have the title, which is a reference to the mythological figure who brought fire to mankind, and thusly started them down the path of the technological.

Likely, then the plot will have something to do with a discover which changes the way mankind looks at or works with the technological world, or in some other way drastically changes things. Still not all that clear, I know, but at least we know it will be sci-fi, and it will be Ridley Scott, which is a good sign.

It seems to be set in the world of the Alien films, and there is the chance, of course, that the film will be some kind of sequel or prequel to that franchise, but I, for one, hope not.

I know that everybody is in love with Alien, but it’s a story which has been wrung out, and the canon has become so twisted by off-shoots and spin-offs that it’s not interesting anymore.

I’d much rather see a completely new, stand-alone story.

Prometheus is expected for release next summer.

PATRICK WILSON JOINS CHARLIZE THERON & MICHAEL FASSBENDER IN RIDLEY SCOTT'S "PROMETHEUS"! "BRIDGET JONES III" GREENLIT! MARK ROMANEK TO HELM NEW "CINDERELLA"! MADAGASCAR PENGUINS GETTING THEIR OWN FILM

Well, this is certainly good news: according to "Collider", one of the most talented actors Patrick Wilson has joined the cast of Ridley Scott's sf thriller PROMETHEUS which is already filming and is rather mysterious since nobody knows what it will be about, except that it will be connected in some way with Ridley's classic ALIEN and that it follows 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. Patrick will join a stellar cast which includes Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender and Guy Pearce. As you know, Wilson is also preparing for the premiere of his TV show A GIFTED MAN over at CBS this September in which he will play a doctor who changes his arrogant ways after the visit of his dead wive's ghost.

Prometheus to Take Us to the Edge of History
By Michael Simpson, September 23, 2011 in Movie News

From now until next June we expect Prometheus news to come at us rapace.

If you’re worried that Ridley Scott’s return to the Alien universe he kick-started will just be more of the same, belay that fear. It looks like Prometheus is going to give us much more, based on the description on the film’s official Facebook page. We got wind of the cool-sounding update below courtesy of the website io9‘s twitter feed (@io9):

Ridley Scott, director of “Alien” and “Blade Runner,” returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

We say thanks to our source because that has got us pretty pumped about the new movie, which is expected in theaters on June 8, 2012. Then again, maybe we shouldn’t have had doubts given the esteemed personnel behind the film. With Scott directing, Damon Lindelof and Jon Spaihts writing and Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace; Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce and Ben Foster in the cast, how can it go wrong?

'Prometheus' Scribe Damon Lindelof Talks Robots, Slimy Corporations & Ridley Scott Collab

Published By: MTV Movies - Today, Sep 28, 2011
0 Comments

The official "Prometheus" synopsis has been unleashed, and as cool as it is — A discovery about the origins of humanity! An intergalactic voyage! An extraterrestrial battle with genocide-level implications! — the description still leaves much about Ridley Scott's "Alien"-DNA project unknown.

All in good time.

Back at San Diego Comic-Con, though, "Prometheus" writer/producer Damon Lindelof kicked us a ton of info about his collaboration with Scott, the nature of the roles Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron play in the film, and who might actually turn out to be the hero-heir to Sigourney Weaver's Ripley.

With the "Prometheus" synopsis on the web, we figured now is the right time to roll out our interview.

Read on for insight into the 2012 flick, in Lindelof's own words.

Collaborating with Ridley

"Having done 'Lost' for six years, I felt this tremendous responsibility because I'm one of the visionaries behind the show, so there's no safety net below you.

When I got the call [from Ridley] I had this tremendous amount of relief and comfort that Ridley Scott is going to be the safety net.

What ensued was a series of conversations where I was kind of interviewing Ridley to get a sense of the flick he wanted to make.

Once I got a sense of that, then it was really about channeling that idea so that I was realizing his vision, as opposed to imposing my vision on it.

That was my perspective.

His perspective was more kind and generous in terms of ideas that I brought to the movie.

But really everything I was coming up with was just a different spin on what he was saying to me."

Fassbender's Role

"He plays a robot.

One of the things that evokes the idea of 'Blade Runner' is, 'What does the flick look like from the robot's point of view?' If you were to ask him, 'What do you think about all of this? What's going on? What do you think about these humans who are around you?,' wouldn't it be cool if we found a way for that robot to answer those questions.

When you cast a guy like Fassbender, who's going to bring a lot more to it than [makes clichéd robot movements] — that was me doing the robot, I don't know if you could tell — it's not Anthony Daniels.

All due respect.

He's phenomenal.

But C-P3O…"

Theron's Role

"Her character's name is Meredith Vickers and she's sort of a corporate entity.

That's another one of the familiar things from the 'Alien' flicks — that there are corporate interests in play.

I feel like Charlize brought a new spin on that old variation.

It's a remix ….

I don't think she's slimy [like Paul Reiser's character in 'Aliens'].

She's not the fast-talking, snake-oil face of the company.

By the way, "What company is she a face of?," I think is a big part of the fun.

As we were developing the script, she had some really cool ideas that made it not the suit you're used to."

The Ensemble

"I think one of the really cool things about the first 'Alien,' if you watch it cold, Ripley is kind in the background like one of the crew members, and you're like, 'Skerrit's [who played Captain Dallas] the hero of the movie,' and he's one of the first to go.

And then you're like, 'It's [the engineer played by] Harry Dean Stanton.' And, no, he's gone… and suddenly Sigourney Weaver, in the last 40 minutes of the movie, is the only one left alive.

I think the idea of building a really cool ensemble and again presenting the audience with like, 'Who's going to be left standing at the end of this movie? Maybe all of them.

Probably not,' [that's] part of the fun of what we set out to do."

'Prometheus': Ridley Scott returns to space -- FIRST LOOK
by Grady Smith

When it comes to sci-fi classics, Ridley Scott has a pretty impeccable record. Not only did he direct the fiery 1979 action-fest Alien, he helmed the genre-redefining Blade Runner in 1982.

So it’s understandable that anticipation is running high for Scott’s upcoming sci-fi return, Prometheus, a 3-D space thriller starring Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, and Noomi Rapace, which is set to hit theaters on June 8, 2012. Lucky for you, EW has the exclusive first look at the film!

The top-secret project, about a team of scientists whose spaceship (called Prometheus) gets marooned on a distant planet, has been teased as an Alien prequel, and although Scott and his cast won’t confirm that for sure, they certainly aren’t denying it. “There’s definitely a link to Alien,” claims Fassbender before adding, “There’s creatures in it that you’ll recognize.”

Get more EW: Subscribe to the magazine for only 39¢ an issue!

But other cast members, like Theron, are playing coy. Says the actress, “I think people should really let go of the idea that it’s an Alien film.”

So are the two films related at all? Truthfully, it may be a while before we know whether the $100 million Fox production is, in fact, directly related to Alien, but we do know one thing for sure: People will be very eager to see the finished product.

For more on Prometheus’ connection to Alien, as well as some additional production photos, check out the current issue of Entertainment Weekly, on stands now!

Possible Detailed Synopsis For Ridley Scott's Prometheus
This is either fake and the result of someone with a great imagination and too much time on their hands, or real and Prometheus is going to be INSANE! Possible HUGE SPOILERS ahead..
The following detailed breakdown of the entire plot of Prometheus comes from Boxofficebuz.com and is said to be the real deal but we can't confirm that. One thing is for sure, it sounds so damn crazy it might just be on the level. One way or another be warned, because if this does turn out to be real you will have spoiled the whole movie for yourself. For those that don't mind or don't think it's legit, read on..



CAST
Elizabeth Shaw...Noomi Rapace
Rayden Holloway...Logan Marshall-Green
Meredith Vickers...Charlize Theron
David 4.0...Michael Fassbender
Jeremiah Janek...Idris Elba
Theo Zedmore...Guy Pearce
Logan...Ben Foster
Ravel...Benedict Wong
Chance...Emun Elliot
Mudow...Kate Dickie
Yuri...Rafe Spall
Aldrich...Frank Kelly
Francis...Sean Harris
Siena...Tal Berkovich
Lettap...James Payton
Tembrook...Tuppence Middleton


"Earth. The beginnings of our world. In an opening montage, we watch as our primordial planet is terraformed and bioformed by seemingly all-powerful, Godlike alien entities…the ENGINEERS. The seeds of life are introduced to Earth for the first time by these fantastic extra-terrestrials, who have the power to create and manipulate both mechanical and biological matter at will. The montage ends as the earliest genetic recipe for life is sent forth from the Engineers’ massive, towering CITADEL in the dark desert.

The desolate desert of Africa: 2085. The prehistoric ruins of the Engineers’ Citadel is discovered by a corporate construction team tasked with building a nuclear-powered comm-array in the wilderness. Amidst the ancient remains are found highly advanced, biomechanical relics with are determined to be of extra-terrestrial origin. This catches the attention of the mega-conglomerate WEYLAND-YUTANI CORPOTATION, who finances a massive archaeological excavation of the citadel in the hopes of reverse-engineering the alien biotech for financial gain. Running the operation is MEREDITH VICKERS, a cold, calculating corporate executive, who recruits intelligent and independent astrophysicist DR. ELIZABETH SHAW to head up the research team. Assisting Dr. Shaw are xenoarchaeologist DR. THEO ZEDMORE and her fellow astrophysicist DR. LOGAN. Shaw uncovers the secret of the citadel when she discovers a chamber of star charts, which seem to lead the way to the home planet of the Engineers. Also uncovered is evidence suggesting that the Engineers had a database of all life on Earth, and may even have been responsible for its creation including Man.

In a partially-submerged MANHATTAN, Vickers meets with Dr. Shaw and an OPO, (Off-Planet-Officer), CAPTAIN JERAMIAH JANEK, and plans a space mission following the discovered star charts in an effort to find and make first contact with the Engineers. For the scientists and explorers onboard, it will be a journey of discovery, but for Vickers, it’s merely a way of obtaining new technology so that Weyland-Yutani may retain the lead in the competitive race to establish colonies off-world.

The depths of space: 2090. A highly-advanced, top-of-the-line ISRV (Interstellar Research Vessel) PROMETHEUS decelerates as it reaches its target solar system. The vessel’s crew emerges from their cryo-chambers. Along with Elizabeth Shaw, Theo Zedmore, Logan, Meredith Vickers, and Captain Janek, the crew of the Prometheus is comprised of: First Officer MUDOW, Security Officer RAYDEN HOLLOWAY, Navigator CHANCE, Helm Officer RAVEL, Operations Android DAVID 4.0, Political Officer ALDRICH, Medical Officer FRANCIS, Engineer YURI, and Technical Officers SIENA, LETTUP, and TEMBROOK. The crew gets acclimated to their removal from cryo-sleep, their muscles in atrophy from five years without use. Holloway assists Shaw in her physical therapy exercises.

The crew prepares for arrival at the home planet of the Engineers. Shaw and Holloway are instantly attracted to each other, initiating a romantic relationship. However, as they enter the Zeta 2 Reticuli star system, Prometheus encounters a massive disturbance which hadn’t appeared on scanners, one even more powerful than a black hole: a wormhole in space. Prometheus is sucked into the wormhole, and after a harrowing ride, emerges on the other end. The ship crashes on a barren planet, which the damaged computer system identifies as the mission’s final destination.

The crew sets about attempting to repair the Prometheus, while Elizabeth Shaw leads a recon expedition to investigate nearby structures, which turn out to be a cavernous Engineer temple. Inside the temple, Shaw’s team encounters a bizarre BIO-BRAIN, a biomechanical humanoid face set within a towering pillar, as well as thousands of seemingly primitive URNS. David takes several of the urns back to the vessel for analysis.

Investigating the urns, David discovers that they contain the genetic material for thousands of species within a viscous liquid called BIOFORMER which can rewrite any living organism on a cellular level. Basically, possession of the substance gives its owner the power to create life. Vickers interacts with David and seemingly innocently leads to the Bioformer infecting David through a cut in his finger.

Within the depths of the Temple, we find several living Engineers who discover the transgression of the Humans, and remotely rewrite the stolen Bioformer to make it into a weapon. The Engineers capture Holloway and run a number of horrific experiments on him, injecting him with the Bioformer and allowing him to return to the vessel.

Subsequently, the crew of the Prometheus begins to fall victim to the now weaponized substance, as the “carrier” Holloway injects Ravel, Zedmore, Francis, Siena, Lettup, and Tembrook. The victims begin to lose their humanity and slowly transform, experiencing nightmarish visions and hallucinations and making pilgrimages to the depths of the Temple to receive instructions from the Bio-Brain. Holloway, in particular, is resistant to the transformation, fighting against the alien influence with his feelings for Shaw and his responsibilities as security officer. Meanwhile, David finds that the Bioformer is making him into a biological being…making him Human. The crew also finds that their trip through the wormhole took them back hundreds of millions of years and they are actually stranded on primordial Earth, having moved through space and time.

Eventually, as alien influence and the continued lurking presence of the Engineers becomes clear, the crew of the Prometheus turns on each other as the infected human victims fully mutate into PROTOFORMS: vicious, skeletal alien monstrosities which proceed to assault the unaffected Human crew through the halls of the Prometheus.

Mudow, Logan, Chance, Aldrich, Yuri, and Janek end up being destroyed by the Protoforms. In a strange, erotic ceremony, the Protoforms seemingly mate with the Bio-Brain and each other to create thousands of EGGS, the first of a new generation of the monsters. Meredith Vickers is revealed to be a sleeper CONSTRUCT of the Engineers, who are still active in their far future and Shaw’s present due to the time-travelling abilities of the wormhole. Vickers was grown in an Engineer lab but escaped, fleeing to Earth while always wanting to her find creators and take their power. The Engineers activate Vickers’ secondary GENE PROGRAMMING, and she transforms into an ALPHA PROTOFORM: the STAR BEAST.

At last, the two remaining crew members, Elizabeth Shaw and David, seek to confront the Engineers in the Temple. The Godlike entities prove to be utterly evil, and David sacrifices himself as he’s dissolved in the LIFE SEED BIOFORMER which is the basic genetic recipe for MAN: the former android David, it turns out, is the basis for all Mankind. Shaw is captured by Holloway, but he regains enough of his humanity to remotely activate an Engineer vessel for Shaw’s escape, then holds the other Protoforms and Engineers at bay. As Shaw escapes, she finds herself in the midst of the initial Engineer terraforming of Earth which we had witnessed in the opening montage, chased by the former Meredith Vickers who is now the gigantic, horrific Star Beast.

Shaw makes to her escape vessel which blasts off for the wormhole, Holloway fighting the Star Beast with both falling into the wormhole and disappearing. An Engineer PILOT detaches from the Temple in a FAMILIAR VESSEL and follows Shaw, but is lost in the wormhole. Shaw emerges above the Earth of her present day; however, she’s deemed insane and responsible for the loss of her expedition and confined to a psychiatric hospital by the Company. It’s implied that there are at least some of those who believe Shaw’s tale, but have silenced her as part of a cover-up.

In the final scene, we see the vessel of the Engineer that was chasing Elizabeth Shaw emerge from the wormhole in the Zeta 2 Reticuli star system, still in the prehistoric past, and crash on a nearby planetoid, the Engineer Pilot helplessly lost and the EGGS in the ship’s cargo hold stirring as something alive moves from within…

The Beginning"

Ok. I didn't even read through all of that just in case but from what I did see, and this does turn out to be real, emmm, I don't really know what to think. The basic plot does gel with some other hints and rumors we have previously heard but of course that really doesn't mean much. I think it sounds batshit crazy myself to be honest. What about you guys?
