Prometheus writer Damon Lindelof has been waxing lyrical to Entertainment Weekly about the universe of the film, and possible sequels.
Let's say I had nothing to do with this movie, and I was one of the people on the internet who was really curious about what it was, my feeling would be - and this is just me - to hear that it's a prequel, makes the movie less interesting to me than if I don't really have a clear sense of what it is," Lindelof told the trade paper. "I anticipated that, at a certain point, the fact that we weren't openly addressing that question - or being cagey about that question - would lead to a certain degree of frustration, because that's what I would be feeling as a fan." He continued: "That's when [director] Ridley [Scott] thought that it would be cool that in the teaser he'd have the word Prometheus reveal itself exactly the way the title 'Alien' revealed itself in the original trailer for Alien. He said finally, "This is him saying, 'I'm making this choice for a very specific reason. If you want to continue asking me what this movie's relationship is with Alien, why in God's name do you think I would do that?"
The film is released here in Ireland, and worldwide, on June 1st and I for one cannot wait.
