New Prometheus image features a colorful Noomi Rapace and a couple of hard-to-see Space Jockeys!
The latest image from Ridley Scott's hotly anticipated PROMETHEUS confirms two things: 1) the humans' space suits seem really colorful, and 2) the Space Jockey's skeletal look is actually that of an alien wearing a space suit of its own.
Last month, Filmophilia ran an interview with Scott about the ALIEN prequel that has since been taken down, though this interesting excerpt has still been floating around:
"I think one of the reasons why I've never gone back to science-fiction, even though I've often noodled around, thought about it, looked for story, looked for material, is that there's a nice purity to the original Alien. It's fairly pure. And [PROMETHEUS] does actually raise all kinds of other questions, because if someone could, a being, could be as monstrously clever to create something like we experienced in the very first one -- I always figured it's a weapon, and I always figured that [the ship in the first ALIEN] was a carrier of weapons. Therefore, who is that, inside that suit? That wasn't a skeleton, that was a suit. And if you open up the suit, what do you get inside it? And why were they going, where were they going?"

PROMETHEUS opens June 8th.
Synopsis: 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.
