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

Cinematographer Dariusz Wolski convinced Ridley Scott that it would be possible to shoot the film in 3D with the same ease and efficiency of typical filming. 3D company 3ality Technica provided some of the rigs and equipment to facilitate 3D filming, and trained the film's crew in their proper operation. Since 3D films need high lighting levels on set, the traditional dark shadowy atmosphere of the Alien films was added in post-production through grading processes, while the 3D equipment was based on post-Avatar (2009) technology.

Just before Dr Holloway points out the area to land, he unstraps himself from his chair. While leaving the chair he bumps it and you can clearly see the chair is loose on the floor. See more »
With a fancy title and the noble intent to explore how life on earth was created, I was hoping for an intelligent summer movie. Unfortunately, this film is filled with plot and story holes, uninteresting wooden characters, average special effects and a story that has the simplicity worthy of only about ten minutes of screen time.
It is a shame that Hollywood continues to insult the intelligence of its audience. It reminds me of American car companies and how they thought that their cars would continue to sell even though Detroit quality fell behind the rest of the world.
While the filmmakers are laughing their way to the bank, they should be ashamed to have spent so much money on a film that is an embarrassment to their reputation. I want my time and money back.
