Now that director Ridley Scott and co-writer Damon Lindelof have addressed vexing questions about Prometheus, the much-anticipated science-fiction adventure that shares more than a little DNA with Scott’s original Alien film, 20th Century Fox is eager to reveal the movie’s most horrifying secrets. In the newest international TV spot, the original film’s most grotesque scene — a vicious E.T. busting out of John Hurt’s chest — gets revisited in new and unsettling ways. “Get it out of me! GET IT OUT OF ME!” screams Noomi Rapace. Take a peek at the promo, and then watch some other recent clips that help fill in the blanks.
“Prometheus has landed.” The calm before the storm.
I love how the profound ambition of Scott’s vision is equally balanced by his real purpose: “Of course, what I want to do is scare the living sh-t out of you,” he says.
