...calling your attention to a Telegraph article covering a special screening of a buncha footage from Ridley Scott's PROMETHEUS.
There are a number of interesting pseudo-spoilery plot points revealed in the piece...nothing too terribly revealing, but hints of minutiae which folks wanting to know nothing about the film might consider "SPOILERish." One detail appears to answer definitively which non-Earth world the picture happens on, pointing to one of PROMETHEUS' possible-to-probable connections to 1979's ALIEN. As for when this connection is established in the story?
For Scott the starting-point - how the big bone creature from Alien came to be there - became less and less important as the new movie took over, or, as he says, "adjusted itself into much larger questions". The origin story ended up "barely in its DNA" - the last seven minutes provide the link. He worked on it design-first, persuading Fox to spend some money blueprinting the entire visual scheme of the film before a script was green-lit. It's his first feature in 3D, but he bats away the idea that this posed any particular headaches. "It's not brain surgery. It's actually pretty straightforward."

PROMETHEUS opens 8 June.
