New image for Prometheus

The steady drip-feed of Prometheus promotional material continues apace, with a new still of that mysterious stone head surfacing online.

The new image tells us little more than the original batch of pictures did, but it does afford us a look at the giant statue from a different perspective. What are those little pods surrounding it? And what does the statue represent?

Ridley Scott is keeping all such details closely under-wraps, but that hasn’t stopped our anticipation growing by the week. Whereas the constant stream of Dark Knight Rises images continually threatened spoilers, the new Prometheus pics are cryptic enough to excite discussion without giving anything away.

The film will star Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba and Charlize Theron as a crew of intergalactic explorers who encounter more than they had bargained for when attempting to learn more about the history of the Earth.

Prometheus will open in the UK on 1 June 2012. We’ve got it marked on the calendar alongside The Dark Knight Rises and The Hobbit as one of the three most exciting films of the year…
