Being a huge fan of the original, I was at a midnight screening of Prometheus, Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel, when it premiered in the UK last night.
You can find plot spoilers elsewhere online, but it’s not giving away too much to say that the effects and production design are the real stars of the show. (Those, and the silkily unnerving Michael Fassbender.)
If you want to whet your appetite, why not check out this three-minute ‘making of’ video, in which Scott and production designer Arthur Max discuss the design of the titular spaceship?
And if you’re planning your own trip to the see the movie, be warned that you’re probably not going to want to eat calamari right before you go in.
