New Prometheus Image: Space Jockey!

January 16, 2012

The LA Times has posted a fresh pic from Ridley Scott‘s “Prometheus” giving you a slightly better look at “Space Jockey”–first seen as a corpse in 1979’s Alien–than the teaser trailer did:

Who is that, inside that suit?,” asked Scott. “That wasn’t a skeleton, that was a suit. And if you open up the suit, what do you get inside it?

You can not tell much from the photo about the Jockey–save for that it’s about to run into Noomi Rapace–The rest of the image is rather dark–but things look very HR Giger-esque.

Writer Damon Lindelof:

The movie is definitely epic in its scope. One of the filmmakers that we ended up talking about to a fair degree of redundancy was David Lean. We wanted to make the movie feel big by having the characters be small in big spaces. That connected to the larger themes we were talking about: that we’re all just these little gnats crawling around on our little planet.
Michael Fassbender Charlize Theron Idris Elba Rafe Spall, Sean Harris, Logan Marshall-Green Ben Foster Kate Dickie star. With Emun Elliott Patrick Wilson and Benedict Wong also in the cast as well.

Lindelof worked with director Scott on the script, which was originally written by Jon Spaihts.

The pic has a June 8th, 2012 release date.
