New PROMETHEUS TV Spot *AND* Sir Ridley Scott Talks 3D!

Hey guys, check out the new TV spot for PROMETHEUS. There are a few new shots but not a whole lot more content. Still, this is PROMETHEUS so every little bit counts!

Here's the storyline for the movie:
Ridley Scott, director of “Alien” and “Blade Runner,” returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.


Total Film got a chance to ask Ridley Scott about 3D and here's his take:

How was it working in 3D?
I'm kind of naturally visual anyway, that's where I come from. And you're working off superb 3D screens, which are on the floor, and are really big. It was just wonderful. I was shooting on 3D, then seeing it on the floor. It was easy, I must say.

Do you push it in a way we haven't seen before?
Well, I mean, yeah. You only want to push it so far, before it becomes arrows popping out of the screen and stabbing you in the eye. You use it for visual effect.

Is it more immersive, giving depth?
Yes, yes. And you can do that afterwards, by the way. I'm actually decided right now how deep to make it on certain sequences. So you can literally, as it were, twiddle a knob, and the depth will increase. It's kind of bizarre, but there it is. Technologically it's absolutely staggering.

I was working with MPC in London, looking after almost 1,300 big FX shots, and every night they would pipe through shots to a big screen in my office in Lexington Street; I would sit there watching a sequence that had just been graded or refined in perfect 3D. Really amazing.

Great to here about his positive experience with 3D - it sure looks like he will be using it again in future projects! Thanks for the heads up Josh...
