Ridley Scott’s Prometheus is and isn’t a sequel/prequel to his 1979 film Alien. And though it may not feature Alien creatures as we know them from the previous installments, from the latest images to come from the film it’s going to have the same look and feel that’s for sure. The film is due out June, 8 2012, but the first wave of publicity is starting to hit, with new images below. Check out the gallery.

First of all, let me say I like the identifications on these because it makes them look like old school lobby cards. And were these images weathered down, some might look like they came from the first movie.

This is our first good look at the cast, and it will be interesting to see how much the film mimics the structure of the first film. Likely the majority of the cast won’t make it until the end, so it’s quite possible Idris Elba, Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace or Charlize Theron are there to provide the shock of an early exit. But my guess is they’ll try to keep such surprises close to the vest. A bootleg trailer leaked over the weekend, which means that a full trailer should be attached to one of the bigger Holiday movies. Since it’s Fox, the best guess is that it will be on Alvin and the Chipmunks 3: Chipwrecked.

Do you think Michael Fassbender just looks weird in the still, or does it feel like he’s a android?
