Tons of new shots from Prometheus plus more Ridley Scott talk

Well ladies and gents Ridley Scott's highly anticipated sci-fi romp PROMETHEUS is inching closer and closer to release and we're just going to keep getting ready for this one with new goods! Why the hell not, right?

Today not only do we have a ton of new stills from the flick courtesy of Kino Gallery but we've also got the director himself Ridley Scott talking shop once again. Now I've gone and tossed a few of the new stills up above and below but you can go ahead and click through on any shot to take a look at the full gallery. As far as the interview goes, here's a little snippet:

"It is, and I’ve got to check [for spoilers] very carefully here, but it is about the beginning of life and ’what if’. It’s a giant ’what if'. Has this ball that we’re sitting on right now been around here for three billion years or one billion? Either way, it’s a long f---ing time. It’s only our kind of arrogance that says ”We’re the first ones.”"

"Are we the first hominids? I really, really, really doubt it. In recent memory or legend we keep talking about wonderful, weird things such as Atlantis – what is that? Where does that come from? Is that real, was it real, is it a memory, did it exist? And if that did exist, did it exist three quarters of a billion years ago? There’d be nothing left now. How was that created and who was it?"

In the distant future, two superpowers control Earth and fight each other for all the solar system's natural resources. When one side dispatches a team to a distant planet to terraform it for human colonization, the team discovers an indigenous race of bio-mechanoid killers. Ridley Scott, director of 'Alien' and 'Blade Runner,' returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

PROMETHEUS lands in theaters on June 8th with a stellar cast that includes Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Logan Marshall-Green, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Patrick Wilson and Charlize Theron (below). I'm sure this isn't the last we see from the flick so be sure to check back real soon for more goods as they come our way.
