New Prometheus image surfaces online

The viral campaign continues

Prometheus has debuted an intriguing new image online via viral website, Weyland Industries, the same source that brought us Guy Pearce’s futuristic TED talk last week.

The new image is accessed by following the website’s registration process, eventually unlocking a special URL. You might recognise the shot from a brief glimpse in the original teaser trailer, but now you can see it in lovely hi-res detail.

Naturally, we’re not entirely sure of exactly what we’re looking at, although it’s interesting to note the scale of the human figure standing in the middle of the screen.

The room itself also looks familiar… is that giant chair the same one that was occupied by the Space Jockey? And if so, when exactly is this image supposed to be set?

As is always the way with Prometheus, the latest viral tidbit has left us with more questions than answers. All will eventually be revealed when the film opens in the UK on 1 June 2012.

How do you interpret the new image? Theories below, please.

      Really looking forward to this film, it looks visually stunning just hope they don't blow it with a lousy script

      I would guess that it is some kind of star chart/map room for the ship they're on. It definately looks like the same room with the Space Jockey, but if that ship crashed then wouldn't he(it?) be there now? - Everything i see of this film just makes me more intrigued. Cannot wait to watch it.

      @FBLBeattie I doubt Ridley Scott would allow this film to have a lousy script!

      I reckon it's the navigation room for the ship that crashed in the original film. I also think it's where they discover that it is headed for earth, and they (the humans) sabotage the ship so it crashes before the nasty aliens get to us. Cos the alien is designed to nothing but kill, right? And space ships don't crash by accident? gee maybe i have been thinking about this film too much....can't wait
