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

An innovative viral campaign was used to promote the film, consisting of several videos depicting the near future world from the film. The first was a fake TED Talk given by Peter Weyland (played by Guy Pearce), dated 2023. Later, two different versions of a commercial promoting the David 8 android (played by Michael Fassbender) were released. These viral videos were designed by Ridley Scott and Damon Lindelof themselves, and were directed by Scott's son, Luke Scott. See more »

First of all I have never been a huge fan of science as a subject, but I know for a fact that a Martian is from Mars. So a group full of scientist inside of a spaceship on a planet in a different galaxy should have been informed of this as well.
Secondly, Michael Fassbender should not be blamed for this role. His performance was good! Considering the writing was weak and the story had more messages about religion than the 700 club on a Sunday morning. As well as Idris Elba for being the only character with an actual story arc.
Thirdly, speaking of religion, if you are going to force it down our throats at least cast Kirk Cameron so we know what we are in store for. Then we know not to see go and waste our time.
fourthly, before you mess with a franchise that you helped create at least take the time to watch the movie that started it, and see what that movie had going for it (i.e. less is more, atmosphere, tension, (and most importantly) character development).
Fifthly, instead of killing not one, not two, BUT FOUR characters in some sort of martyred attempt to bring down the alien ship, why not stop and think "hey?" why don't we try out those cannons?"
I could continue to dissect the plot, but this movie has bored me to sleep and It's time for bed.
Don't waist your money on a desperate directors attempt to cash in on your past.
