In the year 2154, the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth. A man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds.
One of the few remaining drone repairmen assigned to Earth, its surface devastated after decades of war with the alien Scavs, discovers a crashed spacecraft with contents that bring into question everything he believed about the war, and may even put the fate of mankind in his hands.Written by
Jack and Victoria symbolically represent the male and female aspects of nature. The two columns on the portico of King Solomon's temple were the masculine Doric column named Jachin, and the feminine Ionic column named Boaz. Jack "Jachin" symbolizes the male aggression principle (strength, generative force, the blade), and Victoria "Victory" the sacred feminine goddess of nature, like Boaz the Rose (love, beauty, the chalice). Just like Jack and Rose from James Cameron's Titanic. This is why the Tet, a feminine entity associated with Luna the moon, is shaped like an inverted triangle, symbolizing the chalice, the cup, the womb, or the Holy Grail. See more »
Vika's desk display shows Jack tapping out the word "Paradise" in Morse code to communicate with her, but the actual Morse code letters we hear are "a-d-i-s-t-r-a-e-e". See more »
Earth, before the war. New York, before I was born. A place I've only seen pictures of. I know you... But we've never met. I'm with you... But I don't know your name. I know I'm dreaming. But it feels like more than that. It feels like a memory. How can that be?

The Universal logo in this film is a representation of the Earth in the year 2077 in the film, and the text of the word "Universal" is rusted. See more »
The film's IMAX release presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.90:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame than in normal theaters and on home video. See more »
GREAT FOR THE SCIENCE FICTION FAN! And maybe everyone!
They don't make many science fiction films these days. This was a pleasant surprise all throughout the film. Man did I like this film.
And in my opinion. Tom Cruise really likes what he does, and works at his craft as an actor very seriously. In my opinion 95% of Cruises movies in the last 10 years have been good choices. And I'm sick of what the media says about his personal life.
I am one who went and saw Prometheus with an open mind. And listened to what the director said about it NOT being an Aliens movie. And LOVED IT. Good Sci-fi. Such as this film.
It definitely turned out to be something I wasn't expecting.
Excellent Job by Everyone involved. Nice work Cruise!
