The last plot synopsis we received for Ridley Scott's Prometheus was as generic as you could possibly imagine. Only 70 words long, the description informed us that Ridley Scott is an awesome sci-fi director and that the events will test the characters' "physical and mental limits." It didn't mention any of the cast and failed to even establish a setting. Now a new plot synopsis has made its way online and while it's still vague, it is a bit more informative.

Discovered on the movie's official Facebook page (via APN), the new logline is as follows:
Ridley Scott, director of “Alien” and “Blade Runner,” returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

Like I said, it's still quite simple, but it does have one interesting part: the discovery of mankind's origins. To anyone that's been following the project's development, this would seem to confirm the alien terraformers, though it's obviously still unclear if there's a connection to the Alien franchise or the fabled Space Jockey. It's still unclear what the major threat is or why the human race is in danger.Is it a surprise to anyone that this script was written by Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof?

Set to hit theaters on June 8, 2012, Prometheus stars Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce, Ben Foster, and Logan Marshall-Green. While we have yet to see a trailer for the new movie, the first still was released during the San Diego Comic Con in July. For more about the movie, be sure to head over to our Blend Film Database.
