The official synopsis of Ridley Scott's mysterious 'Prometheus'

This still photo from "Prometheus" doesn't give anything away, does it?
Two of the epic sci fi film franchises - "Blade Runner" and "Alien" - were brought to life by director Ridley Scott.

We're calling "Blade Runner" a franchise because it's been released in more versions than we care to count. Plus, Scott is making either a prequel or sequel to the film that originally starred Harrison Ford.

But first, Scott will be releasing "Prometheus." It, too, is shrouded in mystery. It's been connected to the "Alien" series. And disconnected.

Here's the synopsis from the official Prometheus Facebook page:
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.
Not exactly enlightening.

Still, Scott has the track record to back him up. Stay tuned.
