Ridley Scott directs this smart sci-fi thriller that serves as a (sort of) prequel to his classic "Alien." In the late 21st century, a star map found in the ruins of a number of unrelated ancient Earth cultures sends the science vessel Prometheus to a distant moon in search of humanity’s origins. Instead, the crew encounters a deadly alien race that threatens mankind itself. Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green, and Charlize Theron star. 124 min.
