Greatest Living Irishman and newly ordained fave Fluffrick Podcaster Chris Hewitt has seen 12 minutes (and change) of “Prometheus“ footage and was kind enough to gab about it over at the Empire Online blog.
You’ll be stunned to learn that it looks fricking awesome, is definitely deeply redolent of “Alien“ down to planetary names, has scares up the wazoo (possibly literally, Hewitt didn’t let on…) and single-handedly makes a case for 3D being used by talented film-makers who can get the most out of it.
And, most happily of all, director Ridley Scott is still a massive curmudgeon and thinks that the MPAA should get their act together. Well, the BBFC managed it, after a fashion, so I suppose that anything is possible.
“Prometheus” opens in the UK on June 1st. Coincidentally, this blog will probably be receiving few, if any, updates on that day due to your writer gibbering and clucking like a maniacal chicken as he awaits his IMAX 3D viewing…
Lovely image, isn’t it?
