This film is set in 2093 and takes place in the same universe as the 'Alien' movies. A group of explorers, including some archaeologists, are on an "undisclosed" mission. They arrive at a planet millions of miles away from Earth. The team spot what they believe to be signs of civilization. They go to investigate and find more than just signs, they find conclusive evidence. But some of them have an ulterior motive for being there, including the Weyland Corporation. They believe that this is where the human race actually came from. Things soon turn from excitement to survival once inside their discovery. Written by

For the scene of the Prometheus' descent to the alien moon LV-223, VFX art director Steven Messing referenced NASA imagery and aerial photographs of locations in Iceland and Wadi Rum. Messing painted over these images and combined them with 3D set extensions to create a realistic altered landscape. See more »

Plot holes and scientific inaccuracy ruined this film
With all the money these film makers had to make this film one would think that they could hire a few graduate students at any local university for peanuts to check for scientific ignorance. This film is just sloppy. The list of things that made absolutely no sense would go on for pages: from placing themselves somewhere between Mars and Jupiter to not knowing the difference between abiogenesis and evolution. From performing archeology with the equivalent of a bulldozer to having a hodgepodge of symptoms from identical infections.
It was like spending two hours kissing someone with a halitosis. I suppose it would be an entertaining film for someone who isn't bothered by scientific ignorance and is willing to forgive gaping plot holes that make no sense.
