Official Synopsis for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, Plus Ben Foster Signs Up


Ridley Scott’s super-duper secret “Prometheus”, his not-“Alien” prequel movie that sure sounds and feels like an “Alien” prequel movie, continues to pack on the stellar cast, this time adding Ben Foster (“Pandorum”) to the fun. Plus, Joblo have gotten their hands on an official synopsis for the movie, and it goes something like this …

Visionary filmmaker Ridley Scott returns to the genre he helped define, creating an original science fiction epic set in the most dangerous corners of the universe. The film takes a team of scientists and explorers 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.

Watch out for the acid-spewing aliens, boys and girls.

Ben Foster has also joined a cast that already includes Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green and Michael Fassbender, who is determined to become the next Sam Worthington now that even Sam Worthington is tired of being Sam Worthington, and has stopped being attached to every movie coming out for the next ten years or so.

“Prometheus” is set for June 8, 2012.

    —The long ago promising Ridley Scott continues to pitch
    one ‘EUGENICS friendly’ DIS-traction op after another.

    He’s certainly a servant of the capstone, if not, indeed, a high degree,
    soldout member himself.

    Just a little REALITY CHECK on this —the once again ‘overlooked’ 61st
    Anniversary of the staggeringly relevant KOREAN WAR…
