Prometheus is no Pirahna 3D! Michelle’s Review!

Prometheus Movie Review

Director Ridley Scott‘s name instantly inspires awe and wonder in many filmgoers’ minds. I had the amazing experience of meeting the man and watching him direct an episode of his hit TV Show Numbers. With that said, I think I must have been the only one who wasn’t particularly excited when he announced that he was returning to the world that he made his bones on – Aliens.  Maybe its because, I know its blasphemous to admit it, but I have never been a big fan of the Alien franchise.

Ridley Scott’s Prometheus Has Its Android!

michael-fassbender-2 noomi_rapace_01

Michael Fassbender has signed on to play an android character in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus – the film that has arisen from the ashes of Scott’s aborted Alien prequel – for which Fassbender was being considered.

The 20th Century Fox project also stars Noomi Rapace – who gave Lizbeth Salander life in the trilogy based on Stieg Larssen’s Millenium books.

So, if Fassbender is playing an alien, does that make Rapace the next Ripley? She’s got the chops – and the presence – to pull it off. Suddenly I’m very interested in Prometheus.
