PROMETHEUS Viral Continues? Mysterious New Clip Featuring Idris Elba Surfaces

by     Posted: September 7th, 2012 at 10:03 am


Though debate over the merits/meanings/plot holes of Ridley Scott’s Prometheus will likely continue for some time, the film has been out of theaters for a while now.  The Blu-ray/DVD release is looming closer, and a mysterious new video has cropped up online that’s not dissimilar from the viral videos we saw in anticipation of the theatrical release.  Over thirty seconds of some sort of code or transmission stuff is followed by footage of Idris Elba in character as Captain Janek preparing for a mission.  I really have no idea what to make of this, but I’m sure some keen-eyed fan will uncover its secrets soon enough.

Hit the jump to check out the video.  Click here to check out the details on what special features will be included on the Prometheus Blu-ray when it hits shelves on October 11th.

Here’s the synopsis for Prometheus:

Ridley Scott, director of “Alien” and “Blade Runner,” returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

  1. Prometheus was one of the best films of the summer. The naysayers will eventually figure out most of their objections are answered in the movie (or more likely, they’ll find the answers online). And as time passes, Prometheus will take its rightful place as a scifi classic.

  2. Prometheus is a good movie. It has flaws, sure, but I’d take it over virtually everything else that came out so far this year (except two big-budget comic book movies). The hatred directed at it mostly feels like unreasonable audience expectations.
