The director of Alien returns once more to the shadowy, spooky confines of a spaceship in an unknown world. Set in the late 21st century, the story focuses on the crew of the Prometheus as they follow a star map found repeatedly in the archaeological imagery of several otherwise unconnected civilisations. Captain Janek (Idris Elba), archaeologist Elizabeth (Noomi Rapace), botanist Milburn (Rafe Spall) and android David (Michael Fassbender) are led to a distant planet where they hope to find the origins of humanity. Instead they come across a hostile alien species and mysterious artefacts. As in the Alien films, the sinister Weyland Corporation is behind the mission, and has dispatched employee Meredith Vickers (Charlize Theron) to keep an eye on things. But do her objectives match those of the increasingly terrified crew?
