Prometheus is a 2012 science fiction film that set in the late 21st century that tells the story of the crew on-board a spaceship with the same name of the movie title — Prometheus (derived from Greek mythology, Prometheus is one of the Titan who introduced fire to mankind). This film according to its director named Ridley Scott, shares “strands of Alien’s DNA, so to speak”, and takes place in the same universe, yet Prometheus explores its own mythology and ideas.
This movie had a production budget between $120 – $130 million, yet grossed nearly 4 times by $403.4 million. It runs in 124 minutes, and was first released on April 11, 2012 at Paris, France. Thus, they made a sequel for this movie that was just released this May 2017 — the Alien Covenant.
A movie cast by two of my known renowned Hollywood’s promising actors, namely South African actress Charlize Theron and German born actor Michael Fassbender. Michael Fassbender (Erik Lehnsherr aka Magneto of X-Men film reboot series / Cal Lynch and Aguilar of Assassin’s Creed / Stelios of 300) played the role of David, a super-advanced android that acts as the ship’s butler and maintenance man.

This is one of the best sci-fi movies ever produced these years, with some few dramas and terrifying scenes that will surely rush your adrenaline up. It’s a movie that plots one of the most desired and most sought truth for conspiracy about aliens and other foreign beings from space that we longingly wanted to encounter. A must-see movie for all alien fanatics out there. I’m sure Sigourney Weaver had watched this one too. Remarkably astounding with intergalactic visual experience. This one deserves 5-star rating!
