New ‘Prometheus’ Photos Are Super Sci-Fi (Updated)

It’s been a while since we’ve reported on anything new from Ridley Scott’s upcoming film ‘Prometheus’. There hasn’t been any new TV spots or viral marketing for a few weeks now. The last huge thing was the premiere of the first trailer, which had a bunch of hype surrounding it since Scott and writer Damon Lindelof participated in a Q&A after debuting it. The lack of clips, stills, and spots is probably a good thing though since the world is being bombarded by advertising for Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’. Everything else is basically getting drowned out due to the… I don’t want to say “excessive” since I’m enjoying all the coverage… We’ll go with “abundance” of promotional material that Joss Whedon’s newest film is generating.

Today, to tide over the fans of the ‘Alien’ prequel, some new images have been released via Collider. A couple of the pictures appear to be the ship that Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, and company take their journey to the ends of the universe for their mission. The other pictures depict what I’m guessing is sort of structure on the alien planet. They look similar to the giant head seen on some promotional material. See all the photos below.

‘Prometheus’ opens in 3D and 2D on June 8, 2012, and stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, and Idris Elba.

Update: Just after this story posted, we came across this new image featuring a diagram of the Prometheus ship. Enjoy!
