Prometheus: An epic reboot to the Alien franchise


By: Da'Mon Guy

     There are some characters that have become a pillar in film making. These characters have gained iconic status and have been so interwoven into the fabric of movie making that the mere mention of their name conjures flashbacks of the “classic” films and scenes that have seared them into the hearts of movie lovers. In the last 40 years, characters like The Terminator, Indiana Jones, and “The Alien (Xenomorph)” are some of those character. The newest film to utilize this timeless character recently premiered in theaters.

     Prometheus is an engaging, contemplative continuance that finally creates a long overdue definitive origin to one of the most revered characters in modern movie making. This film is a creative reinvention of one of the more recognized characters in sci-if as the dreaded Xenomorph also known as Intermecivus Raptus (the Latin name for Murderous Thief) makes a return to the silver screen after a six year absence.
     The sci-fi thriller, Prometheus, is the long awaited reintroduction of the character that first terrorized audiences more than 30 yrs ago and has been terrorizing the big screen ever since. The character has appeared in eight films, starring in seven. This new addition to the Alien franchise is directed by Ridley Scott who directed the original 1979 film, Alien. The movie is comprised of an extremely talented cast such as Noomi Rapace (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class), Idris Elba (Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengence), Guy Pierce (Lockout), and Charlize Theron (Snow White and the Huntsman).
