The anticipation is building for Ridley Scott's epic Prometheus, and a few new set pics have been released for your viewing pleasure. The shots offer a few new looks at the film's aesthetic, and one thing really kind of stands out—everyone looks very, very serious.

The film, a semi-prequel to Scott's sci-fi classic Alien, stars Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba and Logan Marshall-Green. The team is on a mission to solve the mysteries of the universe, and they find a lot more than they bargained for.

Check out the gallery below, and marvel at everyone's pensive faces (well, except for one behind-the-scenes grin being flashed by Noomi Rapace).

Prometheus opens on June 8.
