According to this story in Variety, the new Scott movie "Prometheus" is a sci-fi horror movie that looks a lot like Alien, looks a lot like Alien, and looks a lot like Alien. That link includes an interview with Scott, where he basically concedes there are no more action or science fiction ideas left.
Unlike Alien, there is no sign of an actual alien jumping out of a dude's stomach. At least not yet. And Prometheus does not include Yaphet Kotta shooting a flame thrower at aliens.
The hook of this movie is: "A team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race."
The movie is scheduled for a June 8 release. It stars Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce, Michael Fassbender and a bunch of other good looking people.
