Not that it will make a world of difference, but for some reason, "Prometheus" has been given the MPAA's "R" rating. Historically, a PG-13 the perfect box-office rating - just raw enough without legislating out too big an audience. Nevertheless, an R isn't a death sentence. Considerations on paper aside, movies have overcome the restriction and came out smelling like a rose.
There has been a good deal of mystery surrounding "Prometheus," Ridley Scott's latest sci-fi epic and prequel to "Alien." But now the reviews are out, and we can learn a bit more. So, what are the critics saying?
Yeah, Michael Fassbender. You seem nice and everything, but we're still just going to go over to this side of the room, now. Half the fun of summer blockbusters is had in watching the marketing. With the exception of the straight-forward manipulation of the hype and speculation surrounding "The Dark Knight Rises", few campaigns have been as intriguing as the one heralding Ridley Scott's sci-fi thriller "Prometheus".
One could've forgiven anybody who'd previously lost "Prometheus" among the summer-movie shuffle presently dominated by "The Dark Knight Rises" and "The Avengers." One well-received teaser-for-the-teaser and a rave-reviewed teaser trailer later, the Ridley Scott space romp looks more and more like a must-see. With the film hitting theaters June 8, it's about time the TV campaign began.
