The Movie Club: Prometheus


After 33 years, director Ridley Scott is returning to outer space and the Alien franchise that made an action heroine out of Sigourney Weaver (and, HR Giger’s creepy critter!). Fans have been gagging for Scott’s prequel, which he says shares the same ‘DNA’ as his Alien masterpiece – and indeed the entire film pivots on the truth behind the human double helix.  
Boasting stratospheric special effects and some seriously good scares, Prometheus is also stacked with a stellar cast, including Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender and the woman destined to fill Sigourney’s jumpsuit: Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). But can Prometheus ever live up to the original (let alone the hype?) 

Join me, Rolling Stone Editor-in-Chief Matt Coyte and the host of The Sci-Fi ShowOscar Hillerstrom as we ponder the existence of prequels, the devolution of attention spans, and the cinematic DNA of Prometheus
