I'm sure some of you want to go into PROMETHEUS with very few details. However, you're probably also ready to see the film already.

Some lucky S.O.B.'s got to see the first 12-minutes of the film this morning and then got treated to a Q&A with director Ridley Scott, Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender. Empire hosted this event and offered a list of 19 things they learned from the footage.

There are spoilers ahead, although I've only listed 5 of the 19. If you want the rest, head on over to Empire.

SPOILERS AHEAD. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

1. Prometheus is an Alien prequel. Make no bones about it – Scott has frequently said that there are direct connections in the last eight minutes of the film, but for Alien fans, Prometheus will have Easter eggs galore. For example, we learned that the planet on which much of the action takes place is designated LV-223. Just a stone’s throw, astronomically speaking, from LV-426, home of Alien and Aliens.

2. Another connection comes in the subtitles informing us about the Prometheus, as Scott did with the Nostromo. It has a crew of 17 (ten more than the Nostromo), it is very, very far from Earth (if we recall correctly, 32x1014 km from Earth, which is approximately 32 HUNDRED TRILLION kilometres from our home planet. Quite a way to go.). It is December 21, 2091. Its destination is unknown.

3. But we start in 2089, on the Isle of Skye in Scotland, as Noomi Rapace’s Elizabeth Shaw and her scientific partner (in more ways than one, fnar fnar), Charlie Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green) uncover evidence of an ancient civilization that worshipped giant beings. A cave painting shows one of the giant figures pointing to five balls hanging in the sky…

4. Which, as it turns out, represent the exact configuration of a solar system a long way from Earth (about 32 hundred trillion kilometres, as it turns out). Holloway and Shaw have been studying similar cave paintings from different civilisations, none of which could have known each other, and have discovered that they are, in fact, a map to the aforementioned solar system, which has a sun much like ours, and a moon orbiting a gas giant that is capable of sustaining life. So, with some heavy-hitting financial backing, away they go.

5. In 2089, camping equipment and clothing hasn’t changed that much. Holloway and Shaw still look like they’ve just shopped at Millets.

SAME IN PARIS TODAY (11th)

POSSIBLE SPOILERS

The same event occurred today, April 11th in Paris and I was lucky enough to be there...
The native 3D is astonishing and Sir Ridley confirmed that the connection with Alien will happen during the last minutes of the film (did you notice the Space Jockey doesn't have his chest hole in Prometheus?)...
Not much to ad to what Empire wrote without revealing too much... I guess the whole world as the same questions about the film!!
As far as movie anticipation goes, after

As far as movie anticipation goes, after those 15'... Let's just say that, even though it's rude to have an erection in movie theatre (except if it's a porn one, obviously), sometimes, you simply can't help it !!

I think reading only the first sentence from the first Spoiler won't really hurt anyone; I am glad I did it :)

I read the first spoiler and was happy to hear it! There probably won't be very many comments to this article as most people would rather be surprised, but cool story anyway!
