It is doubtful you will believe what I have to say next, but I am going to say it anyway! Just the other day I was having a chat at the pub with my wife about Prometheus, and how there hasn’t been very much insight into Charlize Theron’s character Meredith Vickers. Granted she has appeared briefly in the trailers, but she hasn’t really had the kind of coverage stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce or even Idris Elba have had. Then as if someone was listening to our conversation, a new viral went up online last night, and guess what, is focuses on Charlize Theron! What a crazy world we live in eh, and wonderful coincidence.
Anyway, the new clip has Charlize Theron discussing her role, and what is was like working with Ridley Scott. Her character, Meredith Vickers, is supposed to be a real hard ass who works for the Weyland Corporation, and her role in the film is overseeing the Prometheus mission for Weyland Industries. Check out the new viral video at the botom of this post.

In the distant future two superpowers control Earth and fight each other for all the solar system’s natural resources. When one side dispatches a team to a distant planet to terraform it for human colonization, the team members discover an indigenous race of bio-mechanoid killers.
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.
