PROMETHEUS

(20th Century Fox) Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green, Rafe Spall, Patrick Wilson, Benedict Wong. Directed by Ridley Scott

A team of scientists discovers a particular glyph common to most of the ancient cultures of the world and interpret it as an invitation to join a higher intelligence among the stars. An expedition is put together to find out perhaps clues to the origins of life on Earth – and run into beings that might just put an end to life on Earth. While this is set in the same universe as Alien it is not a direct precursor to it.
