RE-UPDATE!! Is This The First PROMETHEUS Poster?? [Apparently So - Now There's High-Res!!]

 

Merrick again, again...

Higher rezzier versions of the same image are now making the rounds.  This sharper/clearer image comes from AlienPrequelNews!! 

 

 

 

-------------------

 

 

 

 

Merrick again...

We've received independent confirmation that the poster below is real, as well as news that (unsurprisingly) Marc Streitenfeld will be the film's composer.  Streitenfeld composed previous Ridley Scott movies A GOOD YEAR, AMERICAN GANGSTER, BODY OF LIES, and ROBIN HOOD.  

 

-------------------

 

Merrick here...

 

A "trustworthy source" over at AlienPrequelNews has submitted what purports to be our first look at an official poster for Ridley Scott's upcoming ALIENverse saga PROMETHEUS.  

The site says we should have a formal release of the same image in the next couple of days...obviously we'll let you know if that, indeed, pans out.  

Wish I could see if there's a "Music" credit on this poster...really curious to learn who Sir Ridley has selected for said extremely critical task...

Here's the (slightly EMBIGGENABLE) poster in question.  Looks about right to me...hopefully we'll see it more clearly soon.

  • Shave a chimpanzee and see what colour the skin is underneath. Mankind's earliest ancestors would have been fair-skinned beneath their fur long before they adapted to their new surroundings and developed darker skin to protect their progressively less-hairy bodies from the sun.

    looks okay but . . .

    by Rob Jenson

    a big head isn't where I was hoping this movie was going. Maybe a big stone ALIEN head, but human? (or our progenitors, more likely?) Not excited. I'll be there opening weekened, don't get me wrong, but unless they put out something else more enthuse-worthy I'll do so on autopilot only and will only see it once. Really, you make a big sci-fi movie, a genre known for aliens, robots and clones, and you think a human head is going to get people's interest? C'mon, guys. Show me something cool.

    A giant human head? We already know the plot then.

    by John C. Croker

    Humans find giant human head statue on a planet, figure out they're our ancestors, and were made extinct by the creatures of Alien. Fairly standard/boring storyline at this point. Especially in video games where Halo ripped off Aliens and add in the extra sci-fi plot of an ancestral race getting wiped out by a monstrous species.

    by AsimovLives

    -you know what would be cool badass? If Ridpley Scott reused the Jerry Goldsmith score of ALIEN for Prometheus. Just like Martin scorsese did for his remake of CAPE FEAR. And thenuse some unused tracks that never made to the final cut of the movie. Wouldn't that be cool?

  • Dec. 14, 2011, 4:51 p.m. CST

    Good

    by Jeff

    Honestly, I like the look of this poster. I wasn't expecting to, necessarily, but that is one creepy fucking image. Bizarre and otherworldly in a very disturbing way. Almost like anything could happen at any moment. Which is the first time I've felt anything like this since "Alien 3." And the best thing is, I have absolutely no idea what happens in the film. None whatsoever. It seems like we'll see aliens again, but in what context? Exploration? The spoils of an ending war? Scientific need? Corporate power-mongering? I have no idea. And this ominous poster alludes to, yet thankfully doesn't give away, anything. Please make this movie R-rated. Because as a fan of hard science fiction, I'm starting to get a good feeling about it.

  • It would also mean that mankind had a badass as a forefather. Makes us feel proud.

  • My only hope is that his script was heavily re-writen to the point that nothing else but some isolated lines of dialogue remained but because of arbritation he still gets single writing credit (kind aliek what happeend with Cronenberg's THE FLY, only even more extreme). But with some luck, somebody actually competent actually wrote the final script version they used to film the movie, and they are pimping Lidenof just for the same of exploiting his name in favour of the movie's advertizement. Lindenof is a studio whore bitch enough to go with that deception. As long it pays.

    Would you people get over the PG-13/R horseshit?

    by Mugato5150

    They get away with everything violence-wise nowadays with the PG-13 rating. The Alien movies, Terminator movies, the first 2 Predators, all have what is now considered PG-13 violence. The chest bursting scene? I've seen gorier shit than that on Supernatural. If it is a PG-13 the only thing you won't be seeing are tits (which they wouldn't show anyway) and the EFF WORD more than once. And no one will be smoking. But the violence will be plentiful. So lose your hard ons about the fucking rating.

  • Dec. 14, 2011, 5:51 p.m. CST

    @mattman No, there is no confirmation of PG-13 yet

    by AlienFanatic

    It's not in the trades nor has the MPAA officially rated it yet. They're just speculating that such a huge picture won't get the final approval from FOX until it gets the PG-13. Nevermind that Fox Searchlight is pushing the NC-17 flick Shame and they're standing firmly behind it. If Ridley really believes it needs an R, I think FOX will let him have it, especially if a film like Dragon Tatoo (coming up) does solid business. But if it's PG-13, I expect it'll also push the limits of violence. You just might not get to see Theron's T&A as much.

    Reserve judgment on Streitenfeld

    by AlienFanatic

    I read some stuff about movie composition lately, and you have to realize that composers often do what the director wants. If you recall, Goldsmith had fits over how Ridley and his editor used comp music to fill in parts of the original Alien and they ended up using parts of Goldsmith's score that he didn't intend to use. They also threw out a lot of Goldsmith's work, especially for the overture at the end, that he was quite satisfied with. In other words, the Director and editor have as much say or more over how the actual film score turns out as the composer. Ridley will demand that the score sound a specific way, whether it's experimental like Goldenthal and Goldsmith's work, or whether it's more pedestrian and subdued. If a someone's composing for film, I expect that they're a capable musician and they can be just as likely to write something memorable as mundane. SIDE NOTE: Anyone wonder why there's so few, if any, female film composers? I can't think of a single one.

    MAYBE the scene where the T-1000 stabs the security guy in the eye and MAYBE when the guy gets stabbed through the milk carton. Maybe. And of course the profanity. I think without the cursing they could squeak by with a PG-13 even with the two violent scenes. Even in 1984 when they were even harder on violence look what they got away with in Temple of Doom. That was a PG (that was sort of a nebulous period where it could have been a PG or PG-13 but still).

    TDKR prologue is already forgettable

    by performingmonkey

    TDK worked ONLY because of Heath Ledger and (to a lesser extent) Aaron Eckhart's performances as those classic characters. The movie itself was an overlong borefest around those central turns. Also, the IMAX sequences did look amazing, the prologue in that instance was exciting to see. Who cares about this new one? With the build-up to TDK anything seemed possible. But now...elements of TDK and pretty much the whole of Inception have put me into a state of...*meh* at the prospect of a new Nolan movie. Whereas, after BB and The Prestige I could not wait to sample more of his delights! The Emperor's New Clothes was the working title of Inception, dint ya know it??

    by L. Ron Bumquist

    Whilst I'm at it, the colour grading of Bladerunner:The Final Cut is horrible, Scott reduced the warm noirish tones and played up the teal to make it look more like a modern generic action film. The contrast is pumped up so instead of details fading off into the murk, everything is unnaturally defined. Bad Ridley, bad.

  • Dec. 15, 2011, 3:52 a.m. CST

    The problem with the tagline is that it reveals

    by KilliK

    that the movie will involve time-travel.Which means that the leaked plot summary,although it was fake,it does have some shades of truth in it.

    by Shady Drifter

    Ridley Scott is one of the few directors who really grabs my attention every time, even in his more recent output. Even in his lesser successful movies does he so often have something interesting to say. He's had the guts to tackle the Middle East in Kingdom of Heaven (the Director's Cut is a masterpiece) and Body of Lies and not give a simplistic view of the 'other'. I love Black Hawk Down - especially the Eric Bana character. Even Robin Hood had the the courage to go political with notions relevant today, when people were looking forward to men in tights and having fun. Whatever Prometheus will be, I am quite sure that it will be very interesting - hopefully it will be much much more than that (i.e. a masterpiece which we know Ridley is capable of).

    re: "Finding a human face statue on alien planet in another solar system would truly be pants-shitting. Nothing banal at all about that!" My "massive bummer" comment wasn't suggesting that it was banal, more that it was just so... disappointingly humanocentric-sounding. Mankind goes into deep space and finds... oh, itself. Really? I was hoping for something a little more interesting and, well, **alien**, than another bunch of ape-people or its super-awesome space-god progenitors, you know? We've got the whole vastness of space to play with and the storytellers give us... us. I don't find that pants-shitting at all. To me, it makes the universe seem just a little bit smaller and duller. In storytelling, of course. In reality, finding a gigantic human face on another planet would, naturally, be brown-pants time.

Now, if we could get Cameron to revisit the Terminator universe and give us a flick that is set in the future ... wow, my life would be complete. Fuck the Avatar movies!

I re-watched the DC Universe opening cinematic yesterday and holy shit, could we get something like that on the big screen?

    no the actors (top-notch!) or the special effects (every FX house in the world fought to be on this picture, the competition will bring out the best). Ridley has been none to start a picture with no script, and improvise scenes (look into the making of Gladiator), so the key feature must be that we humans have a child-like faith and wonder in the Space Jockeys, and only at the very end do we understand their soulless monstrosity. None of the Aliens can be good guys for this to work, so...no buddying-up with Predators, of any ilk. At the end, the only thing you should admire about the Space Jockeys is their purity of intent.

    Re: "Looks like a B -movie"

    by I am_NOTREAL

    Alien WAS a B-movie. Elevated to classic status by a fantastic marriage of production design, direction, acting, and score. I'm very cautiously hopeful about this. Alien3 and Alien Resurrection (the AvPs don't even exist to me) trampled the hell out of the Alien franchise. And I know it's not *REALLY* an Alien movie, but hey, it might be close enough. Reading the Alien Vault book, it's clear how much of a role that Scott played in that first film's enduring greatness, from pushing for that eerie minimalist score to the lived-in look of the Nostromo to choosing the alien's look from Giger's Necronom IV to small, idiosyncratic touches like the drop of moisture flowing upward on the outside of the egg...he was involved in every detail of that film. If this script engages him the same way, the final product could be great.

    Female composers.

    by Henri Pouper

    Shirley Walker is another one (e.g. Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, and the first three Final Destination movies). None of them are all that good, of course. The world has been waiting for centuries for a great female composer of orchestral music to come along; no reason for us to expect her to show up now, when even the guys suck. (When the brilliant Jerry Goldmisth died, that left just the Johns, then Barry died earlier this year and now all we have is Williams, who hasn't done anything noteworthy since his work on Harry Potter. Maybe his War Horse score will had some meat in it, but I'm not holding my breath.)

Even i could kick his ass. what he would do, cry to jarjarabrams? a nd notice that the advertizement of the movie is hailing Lindenof as if he's the sole writer of the movie. If he's going to get the kudos, he will also get the ass-kicking. it's only fair.

    Knowing was scary? I would rather say laughable.

    by AsimovLives

    As for THE GRUNGE, well, the original japanese movies were scary. the american remake, not so much.

    Female composers, cont'd.

    by Henri Pouper

    Actually, we do have Howard Shore, who has demonstrated that he can write some impressive cues from time to time. So Williams isn't our lone hope for some decent film scoring. EVERYONE else is yuck, though. Horner, Giacchino, Zimmer, Elfman, etc. ... after the 70s and 80s and a smidget of the 90s, where Goldsmith and Williams were on fire and writing stuff that would make Mozart and Stravinsky bawl like babies, and John Barry occasionally slapped down some gold himself, this current pack of also-rans is kid stuff.

    Alien started with a B-movie budget. but it was Ridley Scott's imagination, which he trajsposed into storyboards he himself drew (which were called Ridleygrams) that convinced the studio to fork up more money to the production. I fact, thanks to Ridley Scott, the budget doubled. The movie then became a A-movie picture and one of 20th Century Fox's flag ship movie of the year.

  • and seems so much of the best scores of today are in the electronica genre. TRON LEGACY, INCEPTION, THE SOCIAL NETWORK and DRIVE are pur or heavy electronica scores, and those are the best of this two years. It's orquestral scores who are on a real lowdown.

    Streitenfeld's Robin Hood score was awesome

    by kwisatzhaderach

    Very old-school. Looking forward to seeing what he does with Prometheus.

  • 3D movies costs way to much money thus they have to recoupe their costs by allowing in as many people as possible so it will sadly be rated PG-13. I'll still go see it but I won't see it (or any other movie for that matters) in 3D.

    Well, you're right, but there's more to the story. The core idea is B-movie level - "haunted house in space," as it has often be summarized over the years. Ridley Scott did make it into so much more, but he's not the only the reason that the budget increased, the success of a small film known as Star Wars helped as well. No Star Wars - and Ridley Scott could've done all the Ridleygrams he wanted, it wouldn't get more than the original $4.2M it was budgeted for. The fact that Alien was never intended to be another Star Wars is not relevant. At that point studio execs equated SF with dollar signs.

    What happened to TDKR shaky trailer?

    by ImperialMarchFace

    It's listed on the side as a top commented story, but has since been unpublished. Who has the footage?

    Sorry, but this will be rubbish...

    by fitzcarraldo2

    and in your heart, you know that. Scott used to be a superb film-maker of subtlety and restraint. Now he's a dreadful old hack. His out put over the last ten years has been a series of glossy turds, with the semi-exception of American Gangster, which was merely ok.

    Drive had an excellent soundtrack

    by Adam Moore

    As did Tron Legacy. I can't relate to you AT ALL.

  • There was much gnashing of teeth and questions of "Professionalism" (laugh...I did) between the AICN command structure last night both here and publicly on twitter...said TDKR trailer was quickly removed. Success breeds not only contempt, but obedience as well.

    It's funny

    by WINONA_RYDERS_PUSSY_JUICE

    That tagline exactly describes that fake plot that was recently posted here. I think this poster sucks. As someone mentioned, it reminds you of movies like Chronicles of Riddick, which was a commercial failure. I'd like to see this movie succeed but so far the marketing has been underwhelming. It's too dark. The statue is underlit and not at the best angle. It looks more interesting and creepy when you look at it head-on.

    Weres that Darth Kong bloke

    by ihatetalkbacks

    gone? Has he been sectioned yet? I wanted to know what Masonic symbolism was in this poster and the composers name... He will be gutted if he is not on day release when this is in cinemas.

    Is this an Easter ( Island ) premiere date?

    by MurderMostFowl

    I have so far avoided all spoilers for this movie, but if anyone ends up a replicant in the end, I'm going to burn something.

    Yoko Kanno composed Cowboy Bebop

    by Charles Calthrop

    And her scores have quite a range, from classical for Escaflowne, to world beat/techno for Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. When tallying up female composers, Kanno should count as at least three.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjM2w5FOPQw Go for it. Do it. Why your reffering to ass kicking as credentials for his writing ability and your impression of Lost and it's ending I don't know, but hell get in touch with his agent and - tell him, your a serious respectful critic/cineast who would like to engage in critical discourse, through a shady connection of facts as you interpret them, but most importantly, through an actual phhsical encounter full of ass kicking!
