Finally, ..finally 20th Century Fox have decided to release something other than a f**king font for Ridley Scott's upcoming Alien prequel Prometheus. Clouded in secrecy & speculation for the past two years, leaked images & grainy trailer stills are all we had to get a sense of Prometheus. Now we feel its finally on its way. In this, the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly [Issue #1183] [the Thanksgiving edition, are they serious?] we find some totally amazing stills. The images reveal our first 'official' look at Noomi Rapace as Elizabeth Shaw, Logan Marshall-Green as Holloway, Kate Dickie inspecting one of the ampules, Michael Fassbender as David approaching the Giant Head, Charlize Theron as Meredith Vickers & Idris Elba as Captain Janek on the bridge of the Prometheus. Some of us are already familiar with the large room of cannisters we've previously seen in those leaked photos but this time we also get an amazing look at the Giant Head in the large room we have heard so much about & EW reveal Scott refers to this as "the Ampule room". An 'ampule' is a small glass vial used in a scientific laboratory to preserve a sample, usually of a liquid. With the release of the promo images things are starting to get serious & by that I mean a lot of marketing is headed our way including the first teaser trailer. Hit the jump to check out the images.
Synopsis: "Visionary filmmaker Ridley Scott returns to the genre he helped define, creating an original science fiction epic set in the most dangerous corners of the universe. The film takes a team of scientists and explorers on a thrilling journey that will test their physical and mental limits and strand them on a distant world, where they will discover the answers to our most profound questions and to life’s ultimate mystery."

Also its worth noting that this is the first official confirmation that 'Prometheus' is the name of the ship. No s**t Sherlock. Prometheus arrives in 3D on June 8th 2012.
