They say: A team of explorers discovers a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe.
We say: Some say it’s an Alien prequel. Some say it isn’t. Why not just focus on the fact that master director Ridley Scott is at the controls and enjoy the ride?
Close up: Scott has draped a heavy veil of secrecy over the project, with little known about the finer details of the plot, even at this late stage.
Wide shot: One aspect that Scott has confirmed is that Prometheus ‘‘ won’t be as creature- driven as the earlier films. It’s been done to death’’.
