Yeah, maybe we only see her bare back or something, hence the lack of a warning.

Sigh.

Re: Prometheus: Ridley Scott returns to Sci-Fi

Is this fear of R ratings a recent thing? I don't remember Hollywood people having such a problem with R ratings before the last 5 years or so. Does it really hurt a movie's box office that badly if it's R?

So hot that i'm surprised that the movie screen doesn't ignite. The movie looks awesome!

I love the space suit designs. The gloves and wrist sections look a bit power ranger, but overall a very nice streamlined look.

Confirmed as R rated in the US, and 15 uncut in the UK, BTW.

Re: Prometheus: Ridley Scott returns to Sci-Fi

Prometheus is basically one of two franchise films I was really looking forward to this year (the other being The Hobbit, and a certain franchise occupied the third tier before it was moved to 2013) and these pictures and the trailers I've half-caught certainly do not disappoint. It's very Alien, and that's my favourite of the Alien movies anyhow as well as one of my favourite sci-fi films generally.

Yeah, maybe it's just me but they're almost a little retro looking IMO. I don't think they would be totally out of place in a sci-fi movie from the 50s or 60s. And to me that's a good thing.

I don't think those suits look much like we could have seen in the '50s or '60s. Nice design though.

It's more that sci-fi films, in addition to being comparatively expensive, are already a niche market segment (there's a reason the ads have been playing up that Scott is the director of Blade Runner and Gladiator, not Alien), and R-rated films, generally speaking, don't make nearly as much bank as their lesser-rated counterparts. Of the top twenty grossing films in 2011, only two -- The Hangover Part II and Bridesmaids -- were R-rated, and those were comedies with broad audience appeal. An R-rated science fiction / body horror film is considered less likely to be a box-office success.
