If you’re literally salivating over the prospect of this Junes’ opening of ‘Prometheus’ and equally enjoy a good old viral campaign then you are going to literally wet your already damp pants over the prospect of the two ideas coupling up together. Heading on over to ProjectPrometheus.com/eridu takes you to a special passworded page. If you enter the password ‘tell abu shahrain’ to gain access you are presented with a large new hi-res still shot of the ‘Prometheus’ ship. The new ‘Eridu’ viral site, which obviously ties in together with the previous Weyland Corp campaign launched last month, appears to be referencing an ancient Sumerian city of the same name which is now known as Tell Abu Shahrain! ‘Prometheus’ stars Michael Fassbender (‘X-Men: First Class’), Charlize Theron (‘The Devil’s Advocate’), Noomi Rapace (‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’), Idris Elba (‘The Losers’), Logan Marshall-Green (‘Devil’), Sean Harris (‘Creep’), Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall (‘Shaun of the Dead’) and Guy Pearce (‘The Hurt Locker’). Check out the new stills below and head on over to ProjectPrometheus at the link.
“A team of scientists and explorers on a thrilling journey that will test their physical and mental limits and strand them on a distant world, where they will discover the answers to our most profound questions and to life’s ultimate mystery.”
‘Prometheus’ opens in the US from 8 June and here in the UK from 1 June.
