Prometheus images appear online

The first images of Ridley Scott’s Prometheus have arrived online, with Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace and Idris Elba suited-up and ready for action.

Entertainment Weekly has been granted an inside look at the upcoming sci-fi thriller, and some decent-quality scans have made their way online courtesy of Shocktillyoudrop .

The pictures give us a look at Scott’s impressive cast sporting some rather snazzy space suits as they explore a mysterious planet, alongside a giant statue of a human head and what very may well be a variant of the eggs seen in Alien .

Scott recently confirmed that the last section of the film will, “evolve into a pretty good DNA of the Alien one,” supporting the theory that Prometheus is a prequel of sorts. The film arrives in the UK on 1 June 2012.
