By now the Prometheus ‘Ampule Room’ should be burned into your brains. It seems like two out of every three images released from the upcoming Ridley Scott sci-fi thriller feature a new angle on the cavernous room with the giant human head.
Now here comes another look at the ‘Ampule Room’ as scanned from the pages of Total Film magazine. It features two of the Prometheus ship explorers, one shining their flashlight right up the giant human head statue’s nose. Hopefully for their sake there’s not something slimy hiding up there.
Speaking of slimy, the article in Total Film accompanying the image (see below, and give it a click for a high-res look) offers up some new character details about the film. Specifically, it confirms that Charlize Theron’s Meredith Vickers character is, as rumors have suggested, a representative of corporate entity Weyland-Yutani.
Damon Lindelof of Lost fame, who did a reworking of the original Jon Spaihts’ script to supposedly make it less of an Alien prequel and more of a standalone story set in the same universe, told Total Film that Vickers will be less “slimy” than Burke from Aliens. Theron brought her own ideas to the character that will make Vickers “not the suit we are used to.” Your guess is as good as mine.
Prometheus stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Patrick Wilson and Guy Pearce. Look for it in theaters starting on June 8, 2012.
