New Prometheus pics go live

Prometheus, which explores its own mythology and is not directly linked to Alien, hits theaters on June 8, 2012 via 20th Century Fox. 

The film – probably one of the most anticipated genre events of the year – is directed by sci-fi veteran Ridley Scott and written by Jon Spaihts, along with Damon Lindelof.

Prometheus also boasts a star-studded cast, including the sexy Noomi Rapace (from the original Swedish version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Logan Marshall-Green and Idris Elba.

Although June is still a few months away, Scott has done his best to keep fans happy by releasing a slew of teasers, trailers and images. While there is certainly no substitute for actually watching Prometheus on the big screen in a theater, I’ll certainly take what I can get in the meantime.

Luckily, 20th Century Fox seems more than happy to satisfy growing geek demand by posting a number of new Prometheus pictures for us to gape at.
