Prometheus (I) (2012)
Noomi Rapace: Elizabeth Shaw
Elizabeth Shaw : Final report of the vessel Prometheus. The ship and her entire crew are gone. If you're receiving this transmission, make no attempt to come to its point of origin. There is only death here now, and I'm leaving it behind. It is New Year's Day, the year of our Lord, 2094. My name is Elisabeth Shaw, last survivor of the Prometheus. And I am still searching.
David : A superior species, no doubt. The hypersleep chambers will impress, I trust.
Elizabeth Shaw : So they were traveling somewhere?
David : I've managed to work out the broad strips, it's fairly evident they were in the process of leaving, before things went to pot.
Elizabeth Shaw : Leaving to go where?
David : Earth.
Elizabeth Shaw : Why?
David : Sometimes to create, one must first destroy.
Charlie Holloway : These are images of archaeological digs from all over the earth.
[pointing to different images]
Charlie Holloway : That's Egyptian, Mayan, Sumerian, Babylonian. That's Hawaiian at the end there and Mesopotamian. Now this one here is our most recent discovery, it's a thirty five thousand year old cave painting from the Isle of Skye in Scotland. These are ancient civilizations, they were separated by centuries, they shared no contact with one another, and yet...
[he gathers the hologram images to line up and he goes through each one]
Charlie Holloway : The same pictogram, showing men worshipping giant beings pointing to the stars was discovered at every last one of them. The only galactic system that matched, was so far from Earth, that there's no way that these primitive ancient civilizations could have possibly known about it. But it just so happens, that system has a sun, a lot like ours. And based on our long range scans, there seemed to be a planet. Just one planet with the moon, capable of sustaining life, and we arrived there this morning.
Fifield : So you're saying we're here because of a map you two kids found in a cave, is that right?
Elizabeth Shaw : No.
Charlie Holloway : Yeah. Um...
Elizabeth Shaw : No. Not a map. An invitation.
Fifield : From whom?
Elizabeth Shaw : We call them Engineers.
Fifield : Engineers? Do you mind, um, telling us what they engineered?
Elizabeth Shaw : They engineered us.
Fifield : Bullshit.
Elizabeth Shaw : [to the Engineer] Why do you hate us?
Elizabeth Shaw : But you don't understand. You don't know. This place isn't what we thought it was. They aren't what we thought they were. I was wrong. We were so wrong. Charlie, Dr. Holloway's dead. We must leave.
Peter Weyland : And what would Charlie do now that we're so close to answering the most meaningful questions ever asked by mankind? Hm? How can you leave without knowing what they are? Or have you lost your faith, Shaw?
Janek : Where the hell you going, doc? You know what this place is? Those Engineers, this ain't their home. It's an installation. Maybe even military. They put it out here in the middle of nowhere because they're not stupid enough to make weapons of mass destruction on their own doorstep. That's what all that shit is in those vases. They made it here. It got out, turned on them. The end. It's time for us to go home.
Elizabeth Shaw : One of them is still alive. Don't you want to know what they have to say?
Janek : I don't care.
Elizabeth Shaw : Right. All you do is fly the ship.
Janek : That's right.
Elizabeth Shaw : But you must care about something, captain. If you didn't, why are you here?
Janek : How about this? No matter what happens down there, I can't bring none of that shit back home with us. Can't let it happen. And I'll do whatever I have to to see that it doesn't.
Elizabeth Shaw : Make sure you do, captain.
Elizabeth Shaw : Get Charlie.
Elizabeth Shaw : I think they want us to come and find them.
