Hmm.. It’s just.. Not as inspired as any of the other marketing and kinda makes it look like a generic space disaster. It’s also dangerously close to bad photoshop territory, Charlize Theron for instance doesn’t really look like she’s in a hurry to get anywhere at all. The color palate is very nice though, just to say something positive.
The interesting thing, though, is that what it depicts, the Space Jokey Ship crashing into LV-246 (supposedly), should by all accounts be a huge plot spoiler. So we have two possibilities: 1) They’re desperately trying to lure people in with the promise of big explosions, to counteract the R-rating box office drop, or 2) Things will take some sort of huge turn that makes this seem like a Sunday morning stroll in the park.
With rumors going around, take this with a copious amount of salt, that At The Mountains of Madness will never be made in part due to Prometheus striking similar thematic chords and having a twist ending, we’re leaning towards the latter. Or at least hoping for it.
Prometheus opens on June 1st in the UK, June 6th Internationally and June 8th in the US.
