Charles S. Dutton,
Ellen Ripley is rescued by a deep salvage team after being in hypersleep for 57 years. The moon that the Nostromo visited has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, colonial marines have impressive firepower, but will that be enough?
200 years after her death, Ellen Ripley is revived as a powerful human/alien hybrid clone. Along with a crew of space pirates, she must again battle the deadly aliens and stop them from reaching Earth.
After a space merchant vessel perceives an unknown transmission as a distress call, its landing on the source moon finds one of the crew attacked by a mysterious lifeform, and they soon realize that its life cycle has merely begun.
During an archaeological expedition on Bouvetøya Island in Antarctica, a team of archaeologists and other scientists find themselves caught up in a battle between the two legends. Soon, the team realize that only one species can win.
A seemingly indestructible android is sent from 2029 to 1984 to assassinate a waitress, whose unborn son will lead humanity in a war against the machines, while a soldier from that war is sent to protect her at all costs.

"Prometheus" is lucky I'm being so generous. The Film seems to have divided people into two groups. Those that thought it was brilliant. And those who thought it was awful. And sadly I find myself swinging more toward the later. Though I can appreciate it for what it really is.
I Was always wary off a flick which started out as a prequel, then changed its mind, and started to describe itself as something altogether "new." What's the point off connecting it with "Alien" if it's not about "Alien" then? Like, really? If its something new then saying its set before "Alien" is just a cheap marketing ploy. Too help get noticed what is an otherwise pretty standard science fiction movie.
Now I wasn't expecting another "Alien" movie like some were. As it was explained ages ago that it wasn't going to be one. But the way it keeps changing its mind about how it is even connected is just irritating. I Will admit too actually kind off enjoying it too a point. But when they manage to get the one part everyone wants too see wrong (The Ending that explains the connection) then the whole thing seems rather pointless.
I Will applaud the always great Michael Fassbender in this, admit too it having an altogether unique take on the "chest burster" scene, and admit too it overall killing boredom for a couple off hours. But it is no work off genius.
Just because its slow and mysterious, doesn't make it the next "2001." Sorry!
