This Week’s Prometheus News Roundup – June 2, 2012

A whole lotta Prometheus news happened this week as the Ridley Scott directed scifi film began its run in cinemas in selected countries such as France, Netherlands, Russia, and the UK. Sad to say that Prometheus isn’t the “masterpiece” that many of us were expecting and, as a whole, critics’ reviews were merely above-average. And as far as I can tell, user reviews are pretty much in line with the critics.

In any event, here’s a recap of the notable stories that emerged this week that didn’t make it as an article here on PrometheusNews.
