A Long Awaited Sci-fi Adventure

Posted on | June 5, 2012 | Add Comments

This week Ridely Scott’s Prometheus, a sci-fi horror epic, will be released. Scott has been working on the film for ten (yes ten) years, and now, finally, it will be released this Friday, June 8th. The film stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, and Guy Pearce. It is certainly one of the most anticipated films of the summer, but how has the film reached this level of excitement? Well, you’ll just have to scroll down the page… and read on.

In a featurette for trailers.apple.com/trailers, Ridely Scott said that Prometheus is “all about everything.” What does he mean by that? Well you might have to spend $10 to find out (don’t ask me, I haven’t seen the film). That’s exciting news for Scott fans, but why so many Scott fans? Why are so many people awaiting in bated breath the release of his new film? Sci-fi has always been a popular genre and Scott has made hits like Blade Runner and Alien, so why shouldn’t the fans rush out? They should (or at least that’s what  they think). There are so many fans of Scott’s previous work that Prometheus is bound to be a box-office smash.

Judging from the trailer, the film will serve up plenty of action with some of the coolest looking sets this year and effects ready to blow your mind. There’s also a star-studded cast that includes Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green, and more. The third dimension of 3-D will be explored for the first time in a Scott film and that should give the film an extra million bucks or more. The film has already received some critic reviews and its current rottentomatoes.com percentage is 79%. (I expect its final percentage will be 77%.)

So many stars! In 3-D! Ridely Scott as director! (Doesn’t this sound like an ad?) It seems destined for success, and come June 8th we’ll know the answer to that. You’ve only got to wait three more days to find out. And in the three more days… nobody can hear you scream… in excitement.
