Last week the first images from Ridley Scott's maybe-sorta Alien prequel Prometheus were released online very not particularly high res scans from an issue of Entertainment Weekly. They gave us our first look at blond Michael Fassbender and intense Charlize Theron in space, but to truly gauge how pumped we should be about our return to Scott's interstellar adventures, we needed the high-res. Thankfully 20th Century Fox has pulled through, and posted five high-res images online, including a closer look at the giant sculpture face thing that is probably going to haunt my dreams.

Click on any of the five images below to see them in even higher res in our Blend Film Database. And let us know if you think you see some of the "Alien DNA" that Scott has repeatedly promised will be part of the film, without ever explicitly saying it will tie into he's landmark sci-fi movie. We know from the film's official plot synopsis that our team of researchers find themselves discovering "a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth," which isn't quite like the vicious outer-space bugs who populated Alien and Aliens. But looking at the diverse and talented crew of actors Scott has assembled, I just think of the ragtag crew that was on board in Alien; even if the story itself doesn't tie into the mythology, Scott seems to be aiming to recreate the character dynamics and tension that defined his film.

Anyway, take a look at the images below, and join us in counting down to Prometheus's release date of June 8, 2012.
