A special feature on the UK Steelbook edition of Prometheus reveals that Weyland's mentor was Eldon Tyrell, creator of the replicants in Blade Runner. It makes about as much sense as anything else in Prometheus.
While the script has some problems, Prometheus more than makes up for them with brilliant acting, beautiful direction and extraordinarily tense and terrifying moments. Even the 3D worked perfectly and was never distracting or disorienting. As someone who is generally tired of 3D, it's nice to see a movie come along that does it well.
Will you see Prometheus this weekend? Or do you live in Europe and have already seen it? Either way, tell us what you think.
