Rapace, who worked on the Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, played the role of scientist Elizabeth Shaw in the new Sci-Fi movie. Still, in the new film, his character is seen in a dark tunnel that looks like two alien suits that look like the space jokes of Scott's former film alien. Prometheus was initially produced as a prequel to the director's classic 1979 film, but Scott has stated that no reference would be made to Allen in the film, though it has been suggested in the new film. As a result, a group of explorers are searching for clues about the origins of mankind on earth - not surprisingly, things don't go as planned and they get more value because of them. They deal with it. Screenwriter Damien Lindelof recently told the LA Times: 'The film is definitely epic in its scope. One of the films we talked to most about redundancy was David Lean, who directed Lawrence of Arabia. 'We want the film to feel bigger because the character is smaller in larger places. 'It was linked to the big themes that we were talking about as we roamed our little planet.' Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba and Charlize Theron are among the star-studded cast.
