Ridley Scott, the director of the upcoming sci-fi motion-picture event of the year has revealed a new role in his upcoming film Prometheus led by Guy Pearce at a Hungarian news outlet and here is what he said: “When the first Alien movie and Blade Runner were made, I thought that in the near future the world will be owned by large companies. This is why we have the Tyrell Corporation in Blade Runner, and Weyland-Yutani in Alien. They sent the Nostromo spaceship. The Prometheus is owned by an entrepreneur called Peter Weyland, and is played by Guy Pearce. That’s the connection between the two films, and nothing more. Prometheus is a new film, a new world, and is full of new ideas. And of course new monsters as well.”
The film stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green and Charlize Theron, and is about a team of explorers who discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race. Prometheus opens in cinemas across Lebanon on June 7.
