Prometheus, Director Ridley Scott is still vague on the details of his latest film, Prometheus; the director gave a packed room H of his first look at San Diego Comic-Con. Prometheus marks the return of director Ridley Scott in the genre of science fiction and has been described as a sorta-somewhat-but not really a prequel to 1979 Scott’s masterpiece, “Alien”.
Courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox, the panel was moderated by Promethean writer Damon Lindelof, co-creator of “Lost” and writer / producer of the upcoming “Cowboys & Aliens.”
Lindelof began the panel with a story of how he became involved with the project and chose to write the final draft of the script. You may have heard this story before the Show Kevin Pollak Chat – if not, you can enjoy the full two hours and 40 minutes of the interview here:
Then the panel jumped right into the presentation of archival material. The presentation began with a montage of video from Scott’s previous work with the promise that the director who created such iconic works as “Blade Runner” and “Alien” is back to redefine gender.
Then came the video for “Prometheus.” Jason Dussault Geeks of Doom describes the rapid-fire sequence as “astronauts find the dark corridors of a ship before reaching a huge structure, antique look to the writings of foreigners in the walls and small, evenly spaced bumps the ground. ”
The film was accompanied by a voiceover, with Ridley Scott explains: “It is the DNA of the original ‘Alien’, but that is all that happens.” This seems like Scott attempt to minimize the influence of his own 1979 film, and keep things so mysterious and vague as possible. We know that the film explores the mystery of the “space jockey” -. “Alien” giant fossilized body seen in the first
As the shots go faster, attendees were treated to scenes of nkd Charlize Theron doing push-ups (do not know why, but I do not think anyone complains), Michael Fassbender playing a strange sticky substance (the famous gel-like secretion left abroad, perhaps?) and someone burned by a flamethrower.
Perhaps the most interesting piece taken from the panel of Prometheus is Ridley Scott’s comments on the use of 3D technology. As noted Slashfilm, Ridley Scott told the audience, “I’ll never work without 3D again, even for small dialogue scenes. I love the whole process. 3D opens the universe in a dialogue scene, even small, so I’ve been very impressed with that. ”
Prometheus is definitely one of my most anticipated movies of 2012 and here’s hoping that Scott makes a triumphant return to the genre of science fiction and at the same time, validates 3D as an artistic element and not just a tool to money used in the studies.
