While I’m looking forward to PROMETHEUS as much as the next boil ‘n ghoul, the ship concept and design and, thus, the name of the film, is a complete rip-off of Joss Whedon’s masterful SERENITY. For a while now I’ve been wondering why the ship felt familiar. IT’S BECAUSE IT LOOKS LIKE A FIREFLY CLASS VESSEL from the show FIREFLY and the film version of said show, Serenity. While Prometheus obviously has a completely different storyline, there could be some legal issues at work here if anyone’s actually paying attention. This featurette is specifically about the ship Prometheus and all it’s innards ‘n outtards. Give it a look. If you know anything about Firefly or Serenity, I think you may see more than a few similarities.
The film, Directed by Ridley Scott, opens June 8, 2012 in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters, and stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Guy Pearce, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall, Logan Marshall-Green, Benedict Wong, Emun Elliott, Ben Foster, and Patrick Wilson.
