Prometheus 2 just might become one of the most anticipated films of recent years, largely due to the fact fans want to see a perfect Alien prequel, rather than the first film which sadly couldn’t quite get it right.
Prometheus was a great film, but not a classic one, and while the first two thirds were amazing, the finale let it down. Too many endings, too many unanswered questions and a lack of focus on how to actually finish the film. It’s still an incredible piece of cinema, but it divided opinion, so naturally fans are expecting great things from the sequel.
Many also complained that writer Damon Lindelof had a big part to play in Ridley Scott’s first film, but he is not involved this time, and now Scott has confirmed that questions will begin to be answered.
Collider caught up with Scott at the Toronto International Film Festival, and asked him about Prometheus 2 and what his plans were. Scott replied:
“It starts off with a very grand idea—or a grand question, really. Who are they and why did they create such evil biology and bacteriology? And [in creating], to protect themselves from what? So the questions are answered there, or rather, beginning to be answered in Prometheus 2”
Naturally the “they” is the Engineers, so the big question is what was it that scared them? I think we all know the question to that, surely the Xenomorphs. The Engineers had murals of these creatures in the pod room in Prometheus, so it is possible that they wiped them out before, or at least contained them. However, as we saw at the end of Prometheus (SPOILERS!!!), a Xenomorph was born, and it was quite a cool scene.
Scott has already promised a brand new Xenomorph in Prometheus 2, so right now all is sounding very exciting. He also recently confirmed that Prometheus 2 WILL be his next film. Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace will be returning.
Plot details for Prometheus 2 are unknown at this time, but early reports suggest the film would see Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender’s head going to the Engineers planet, looking for revenge.
