Hollywood Reporter has posted up a short report of the Cine Europe expo that took place last night. There was no footage shown despite what was rumoured. Ridley Scott and the cast didn’t really say a whole lot, apparently. Here’s the main points:
- Prometheus occupies the same universe as Alien.
- The film is inspired by a desire to explore the Space Jockey creature seen in the first Alien.
- Prometheus is also the name of the spacecraft sent from Earth by a powerful corporation.
- The storyline and script is inspired by Swiss sci-fi writer Eric van Daniken.
- Michael Fassbender hinted that his character, David, is an android.
