New image for Prometheus

Another look at that giant head

The steady drip-feed of Prometheus promotional material continues apace, with a new still of that mysterious stone head surfacing online.

The new image tells us little more than the original batch of pictures did, but it does afford us a look at the giant statue from a different perspective. What are those little pods surrounding it? And what does the statue represent?

Ridley Scott is keeping all such details closely under-wraps, but that hasn’t stopped our anticipation growing by the week. Whereas the constant stream of Dark Knight Rises images continually threatened spoilers, the new Prometheus pics are cryptic enough to excite discussion without giving anything away.

The film will star Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba and Charlize Theron as a crew of intergalactic explorers who encounter more than they had bargained for when attempting to learn more about the history of the Earth.

Prometheus will open in the UK on 1 June 2012. We’ve got it marked on the calendar alongside The Dark Knight Rises and The Hobbit as one of the three most exciting films of the year…

What do you think the head represents? Share your theories, below.

      Agreed that this, along with Dark Knight Rises and Hobbit are the 3 most anticipated films of the year. But odds are that at least one will disappoint, especially with anticipation levels running at 200%. My money is on this being the one, especially with Sir Ridders recent rocky form. I do hope Im wrong though.

      @RaveyDaveyGravy I'd like to hope that none of them suck, but if one did, my money would be on The Hobbit. Lord of the Rings was lightning in a bottle for Peter Jackson, and we all know lightning rarely strikes twice...

      It was the wake-up call of G.I. Jane that led to the noughties resurgence in his career, starting with Gladiator. Sir Ridley's 'recent rocky form' may actually be another reason to be excited about this; he'll be hungry again, with something to prove.

      Really looking forward to this one, cant stop watching the trailer! Really good to see Fassbender making a really well selected, eclectic body of movies, long may it continue.
