Fox Releases Official Prometheus Story Details
In response to the leaked "synopsis" we shared yesterday, Fox have issued the official logline for the film:
Visionary filmmaker Ridley Scott returns to the genre he helped define, creating an original science fiction epic set in the most dangerous corners of the universe. The film takes a team of scientists and explorers on a thrilling journey that will test their physical and mental limits and strand them on a distant world, where they will discover the answers to our most profound questions and to life's ultimate mystery.
So, it doesn't necessarily clash. None the less, Fox have formally said that the leaked storyline is "way off".
Just like they keep saying that the film isn't an Alien prequel…
The real mystery here is the strange marketing. I don't know why they won't embrace the fans, and their willingness to see Scott return to the Alien series.
