By examining and comparing many ancient civilizations, scientists Elizabeth shaw (Noomi Rapace) and Charles holloway (Logan marshall-green) have discovered that humans may have been created by aliens from a distant galaxy.

The film serves as a prequel to Scott’s earlier film “Alien” (1979) and explores the origins of the mysterious Space Jockey creature seen in that film.

Along the way, they discover a strange structure that contains a dangerous secret. As they explore the structure, they encounter a series of deadly threats and must fight for their survival.

“Prometheus” received mixed reviews from critics, with some praising its ambitious scope and stunning visuals, while others criticized its convoluted plot and lack of character development. Nevertheless, the film was a commercial success, grossing over $400 million worldwide. A sequel, “Alien: Covenant”, was released in 2017, continuing the story of the “Alien” franchise.
