As more trailers and interviews trickle out, the layers are starting to peel slowly back on Ridley Scott's (Alien, Blade Runner) super-mysterious Alien prequel Prometheus. The latest featurette goes even deeper and talks about Scott's vision of the origin of life, and how it's not really what we expected.

The more we learn about Prometheus, the more it seems like it could be one of the most ambitious, gutsy sci-fi movies in recent years.

"This story kind of walks around the truth of what there may be out there," Scott teases. "The planet where they go is called Zeta 2 Reticuli, and what they find there is an establishment that is not what they expected it to be... It presents some big questions."

Check out the new featurette below. The film is slated to open June 8.
