Well Dark Knight rises was shot a lot on location, the production tried at first to prevent the leaks then they did not bother anymore. How can you stop people from taking pictures with their smart phones when you're shooting a brawl in Wall Street with hundreds of actors?
As for the story same as Prometheus, nobody knows just guesses...
PROMETHEUS has been shot mostly in closed sound stages or at isolated locations.
A lot of movies get the same treatment and are hush hush (the next Neil Blombkamp for exemple ELYSIUM).
Previous Scott's movies too...
So PROMETHEUS has nothing special going on for that matter.
We are just focused on this movie in particular.
As for the new Batman movies.
It would be a mistake to put them in the same wave of the comic book movie wave
The thing with the Dark Knight movies is that it's more a drama action thriller set in some sort of alternate real world than comic book fantasy. Nolan followed every rules that Scott used for ALIEN or BLADE RUNNER and applied them to the super hero genre.
If Scott did a Batman (or any superhero) movie i have no doubt it would look like Nolan's.
Just a hunch....in the leaked trailer it looks like what's firing down on the crew aren't rockets or bombs but whatever is in those urns?
Consensus of opinion was that it's more likely just random debris raining down from the crashing ship.
Many assumed it was an Engineer ship, but it could just as easily have been a human craft.
It's both i think.
I have no doubt that the exploding ship is the derelict class Engineer's ship.
Then you have the debris and piece of landing gear from the shoot in Iceland?
Do the math. A human ship crashing into the Engineers ship to prevent him from reaching Earth.
Janek last stand
And debris are flying all around, Shaw and Theron running for their lives.
