Charlize Theron explains she is no heroine in Ridley Scott’s ‘Prometheus’

I am stuck between whether it is Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, or Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises which is topping my must-see lsit of 2012, so any news on either film will be covered. Whether it’s great big news or just a smidgen of information, it will be shared right here. Todays news is not all that big after the amount of teaser trailers and eventual trailer for Prometheus this week, but it does give an insight into Charlize Theron’s character, and the final sentence is very promising about how good the film will be (as if we didn’t already know how good this is going to be!)

“I actually don’t play the heroine in it; that’s Noomi Rapace,” she tells Total Film. “I play somewhat of a villain in it. She’s not a believer, she’s not a scientist, she is the red tape that everyone has to go through. She’s working with the company that’s sponsoring this whole thing, and you can feel she definitely has an agenda, which we pick up in the third act. She’s more quiet thunder.”

Then it gets much better in terms of what we can expect. Theron was asked if we can expect anything like the famous ‘Chestburster’ scene, and she replied:

“Maybe! I mean, if you’re a Ridley Scott fan and you love the genre, then you’re going to be happy. You’re going to be very, very happy.”

Oooh yes!!! Can I possibly get any more excited about this film, can I??? Usually now I would link to our previous stories where the trailer is, and I will link to all our previous stories, but dammit the trailer is so good I will include it at the bottom of this post! See our previous stories here

Prometheus, stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Patrick Wilson, Logan Marshall-Green, and Ben Foster, and will arrive in UK cinemas 1st June 2012.


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.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
