Prometheus footage reveal report: details and reaction

We've seen 13 minutes, and it's awesome…

This morning saw the world's first screening of 3D footage from Prometheus at the Vue cinema in London's Leicester Square. We at Total Film were lucky enough to get a look at it, as well as attending a Q & A with both director and cast, and if possible, we're even more excited than we were before…

We were treated to approximately 13 minutes of footage comprised of a series of scenes setting up the film's premise. Naturally, if you don't want to know anything before going in, you should probably stop reading now.

First up was a sequence set on Scotland's Isle of Skye, in which research scientists Noomi Rapace and Logan Marshall-Green discover some peculiar markings on the wall of an old cave. Surmising that the etchings make reference to a race of extra-terrestrial beings, Rapace make the fateful proclamation that, "I think they want us to come and find them." Hmmm…

The next scene was set upon the good ship Prometheus in the year 2093, with Michael Fassbender's placid android, David, attending to a pushup-performing Charlize Theron. "Were there any casualties?" she asks him casually, as she completes her workout. David confirms that there were not.
