Following a faint trail of clues, the accomplished archaeologist, Doctor Elizabeth Shaw, and her partner, Charlie Holloway, along with a seventeen-man crew, embark on an ambitious, deep-space scientific expedition. Aboard the revolutionary space-exploration starship, USCSS Prometheus, the team sets foot on the rocky terrain of the desolate exomoon, LV-223, in 2093, to investigate the existence of the superior extraterrestrial species known as the "Engineers". But, there, inside a mysterious, complex structure of cavernous dark chambers and an intricate underground system of tunnels, more enigmas await. Now, a terrifying discovery threatens not only the outcome of the bold outer-space mission but also the very future of humankind. Is the world prepared for the answers to the fundamental questions of human existence?Written by
During production, Ridley Scott kept the use of computer-generated imagery as low as possible, using CGI mainly in space scenes; Scott recalled advice visual effects supervisor Douglas Trumbull gave him on the set of Blade Runner (1982): "If you can do it live, do it live", and also claimed that practical visual effects were more cost-effective than digital visual effects.

(at around 54 mins) When Fifield and Milburn are examining the pile of dead alien bodies, one of the alien hands (in the right part of the screen) wiggles slightly as if made of rubber. See more »
So first i watched it in the cinema and i've never seen a movie from the Alien franschise before, and after the movie ended as felt abit "meh, special effects nothing more" Then a friend told me i at least should watch the 2 first Alien movies and so i did and now i re watched Prometheus and it is SOO much better if you've seen at least the 2 first ones. It comes of as a new franchise but to be honest, a lot of the things explained and seen in Prometheus were something you wondered about from the 2 first films.
So in the end, watch at least the 2 first ones (both really good, the others are not so) before you watch Prometheus
