Fox

Over the course of Ridley Scott's frustratingly ambiguous space epic "Prometheus" the only thing we really learn about the oddball android David (Michael Fassbender) or his motivations is that the dude liked to touch everything. A lot.

One of the biggest mysteries was *SPOILER* what exactly David uttered in unsubtitled Proto-Indo-European to the giant engineer douche who then goes on a pointless killing spree, but Stu Holmes over at The Bioscopist got the skinny directly from Dr. Anil Biltoo of the SOAS Language Centre in London.

Ridley Scott defined sci-fi terror with 1979's "Alien," so it's only fitting that the director would redefine the genre with "Prometheus," a prequel that takes many detours into rabbit holes of philosophical pondering.

What are they pondering, exactly? Only the nature and purpose of mankind's origin, that's all. No biggie. Oh, and there's monsters! This epic stars Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba and the amazing Michael Fassbender as a robot to be reckoned with.

Is director Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" a full-on prequel to his 1979 sci-fi horror masterpiece "Alien" or not?

That's the question movie fans have been asking for months and we're going to answer it for you, once and for all. The answer, friends, is yes ... basically.

Scott has been adamant that while "Prometheus" "carries the DNA" of "Alien," it is an original piece of science fiction that delves into everything from biotechnology to artificial intelligence to the origins (and possible destruction) of mankind itself. Get More »

Cameron Diaz might be best-known for her work in comedies like "There's Something About Mary," "Shrek" and, most recently, "Bad Teacher," but one would be remiss to forget she's held her own with edgier material too, including "Vanilla Sky" and "Any Given Sunday."

Diaz, according to Deadline, will be getting a great new shot at proving her muster in the serious film biz, as she's just been attached to Ridley Scott's impressive cast for "The Counselor."

The film will be based upon author Cormac McCarthy's script and will feature Scott's "Prometheus" star Michael Fassbender in the lead as an attorney who muddies up his clean reputation and endangers his formerly respectable life by involving himself with cocaine trade. Get More »

Michael Fassbender's Android Makes a Sales Pitch For 'Prometheus'

Fox

The latest piece of the "Prometheus" puzzle has arrived online, and it's a must-see.

The new clip, "Happy Birthday David," is the sort of thing companies play internally to school employees on the dangers of sexual harassment; in this case, Michael Fassbender's android David explains who he is, what he does and why he's the perfect employee in what's likely a promo video for Weyland Corporation.

David blends in perfectly, he assures us, despite the fact that he's wearing the face of one of the sexiest men alive. He can also play chess with himself, he enjoys the delights of fresh flowers, and he can do things that humans "might find… distressing or unethical." Tell us more! Get More »

But unlike a lot of highly anticipated mystery flicks, the more we learn about "Prometheus," the more we can't wait for June 8 to finally get here.

Take a look at a master filmmaker's brave new world.
