Ridley Scott Unveils Prometheus At Comic-Con

It is one of next year's most highly anticipated films, the first science fiction feature from Ridley Scott since Blade Runner more than 25 years ago, but until yesterday no one had seen so much as a second of footage.

Tens of thousands of fans got an early glimpse of Prometheus at San Diego's annual Comic-Con event yesterday during a special presentation which featured appearances from star Charlize Theron and screenwriter Damon Lindelof as well as a satellite linkup to Scott himself on location in a remote part of Iceland.
