Prometheus is a prequel to Ridley Scott’s Alien movie from 1979. In this film, with ancient archaeological maps the Weyland corporation enlists the USCSS Prometheus to the planet LV-223 to discover their human origins. Once on the mysterious planet they soon find more than they bargained for. Instead they discover something that will threaten the existence of their kind.
In an effort not to reveal any spoilers I’m just going to say that Prometheus is a solid sci-fi movie that explains some of the questions from the original Alien movie, but it leaves more questions than it answers.
