Little is known about the characters in Ridley Scott’s return to the science fiction genre, ‘Prometheus’, and we won’t find out much until we’re actually sitting in the theater watching the movie, but today Comic Book Movie has provided a featurette that might help in getting to know one character in particular: Meridith Vickers.

Prior to the release of this video, all we knew of Miss Vickers was that she is played by Oscar-nominated actress Charlize Theron and that she works for the Weyland Corporation, the company that funded the Prometheus mission that is run by Guy Pearce’s character from the awesome viral TED Talk video, Peter Weyland.

Now, you can learn just a bit more about the character without getting into some spoilery territory by watching the minute and a half video below.

Here’s the official synopsis for Ridley Scott’s ‘Prometheus’:

“Ridley Scott, director of ‘Alien’ and ‘Blade Runner’, returns to the genre he helped define. With ‘Prometheus’, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.”

The film starring Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, and Idris Elba opens in 2D and 3D on June 8th, 2012.
