First Official, Dark, and Shadowy Poster for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus

Prometheus (2012) Movie Image

After all the teasing and the usual lawyer-happy tactics Fox has been using to keep Ridley Scott’s “Prometheus” away from the online universe for as long as possible, here’s your first look at the movie’s official poster. Yes, it’s dark and shadowy and you can barely tell what’s happening, but I suppose that’s part of the studio’s whole “this movie is so good, so awesome, we don’t want to show you too much!” angle to selling the film. Let’s hope the finished product is worthy of all that hype.

With the poster now out, will the official trailer be far behind? One hopes so, especially with “The Dark Knight Rises” full trailer expected this Friday or thereabouts.

In the film, “a team of scientists and explorers are on a thrilling journey that will test their physical and mental limits and strand them on a distant world, where they will discover the answers to our most profound questions and to life’s ultimate mystery.”

Starring Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce, Ben Foster, Logan Marshall-Green, Kate Dickie, Sean Harris, and directed by Scott.

The film is due out next Summer.
