Prometheus Official Synopsis Released

And there’s no mention of the words “alien” or “prequel”

“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. The film takes a team of scientists and explorers on a thrilling journey that will test their physical and mental limits and strand them on a distant world, where they will discover the answers to our most profound questions and to life’s ultimate mystery.”

So there you go. That clears everything up. Happy now?

So, what is life’s untimate mystery? When is a prequel not a prequel?

Prometheus stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie and Logan Marshall-Green and is written by Damon Lindelof, Jon Spaihts and Ridley Scott. It’s scheduled for a June 8, 2012 release.
