Director: Ridley Scott
Cast: Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce
Synopsis: Preceding the events of Scott’s Alien, this film certainly inhabits the same world, but in every other way is a very different film. It explores classic themes such as the origins of humanity, and examines the motivations that drive us to answer these questions. It is less a prequel than it is another stand-alone story in the same world, that does manage to answer some questions from the original film whilst raising many more of its own.
