New featurette for Prometheus: watch now

Focusing on the good ship herself

Prometheus has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette in which Ridley Scott’s cast and crew discuss the creation of the ship from which the movie takes its name.

Production Designer Arthur Max has clearly worked extremely hard to avoid the clichés usually associated with the conventional big-screen spaceship, and from the looks of things, he’s succeeded in spectacular style.

As Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender say themselves, the interior of the Prometheus looks to be an utterly immersive environment, and just about as far removed from the scruffy old Nostromo as you could wish for.

Take a look at the new featurette, below...

Part of Ridley Scott’s decision to return to sci-fi rested upon whether or not it was possible to do something new within a distinctly well-worn genre, and clearly that perspective has informed every element of the production, from the storyline right down to the nuts and bolts of the ship.

Prometheus opens in the UK on 1 June 2012. That’s this Friday. Let the countdown begin!
