‘Prometheus’ Is Nothing Like ‘Alien,’ Says Ridley Scott



Ridley Scott has strongly dismissed comparisons between Prometheus and Alien.

The director has said that the new movie series, which starts this summer with Prometheus is a much different animal than the classic Alien film that he made in 1979, but it doesn’t change the fact that the new films occupy the same general universe.

Speaking to Total Film, Scott said: “Are there parallels to be drawn? No. The dynamics are entirely different.”

There could well be a few similarities when it comes to characters. According to Naomie Repace her character shares a few similarities to Alien’s heroine Ripley (Sigourney Weaver).

Rapace said: “I’d say, yes, there are similarities, though I think my character is a bit more feminine, maybe.

“My character and Dr Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green) are the ones who discover something on Earth that gives us the last possible piece to go out on this journey.

“So, I’m carrying more on a personal level than [Ripley] did.”

Scott has recently said that he’s determined to make Prometheus every bit as successful as the previous films and may pursue a PG 13 rating for Prometheus.


Prometheus will open in the UK on June 1, and the US on June 8.
