Prometheus sequel confirmed

Jan 28, 2020 by William Lewis.

While not everybody fell under the spell of Ridley Scott's oddball return to the Alien franchise, Prometheus did respectable if not a stellar business. Made for $130 million, it more than doubled its money internationally, though the former figure doesn't account for what must have been a huge marketing budget; viral videos featuring Michael Fassbender painting model kits and sniffing flowers can't be made cheaply. Prometheus, it seems, has made enough cash to warrant a sequel, since Fox has confirmed to Hollywood Reporter that it's pushing Prometheus 2 (as we'll tentatively call it) forwards for a release in two or three years' time. "Ridley is incredibly excited about the movie, but we have to get it right," Fox's Emma Watts told HR. "We can't rush it."
