Hero Complex has released this intriguing new image of Noomi Rapace (and some mysterious “Space Jockey” suits) in ‘Prometheus,’ Ridley Scott’s prequel to his 1979 classic sci-fi film, ‘Alien.’ The image accompanies comments from writer Damon Lindelof regarding the scope of the film: “The movie is definitely epic in its scope. One of the filmmakers that we ended up talking about to a fair degree of redundancy was David Lean, who directed ‘Lawrence of Arabia.’ We wanted to make the movie feel big by having the characters be small in big spaces, That connected to the larger themes we were talking about — that we’re all just these little gnats crawling around on our little planet.”

Alongside Noomie Rapace, ‘Prometheus’ features a stellar cast in Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Guy Pearce, Rafe Spall and Logan Marshall-Green. My excitement meter is officially set to ‘squeal like a Japanese schoolgirl’ for this film. ‘Prometheus’ is released in cinemas June 8th.

Ridley Scott, director of “Alien” and “Blade Runner,” returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
