Showcasing the most eagerly awaited film of 2012, the latest book from Titan Books and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products, PROMETHEUS: THE ART OF THE FILM, has created such a demand from fans that the book is already being re-printed for a third run prior to its publication date on June 12th [UK: June 8 2012]. As the only book to directly tie in to the film, this lavish title serves as an exclusive guide to never-before-seen content, including newly revealed production art, exclusive interviews, extraordinary behind-the-scenes material and an introduction by legendary director Ridley Scott.

Written by Mark Salisbury, PROMETHEUS: THE ART OF THE FILM, offers fans the opportunity to delve deeper into this epic science-fiction production. Ridley Scott, director of Alien and Blade Runner, returns to the genre he helped define. With Prometheus, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race. The film releases from Twentieth Century Fox in 3D in theaters June 8th and stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green, and Charlize Theron.

“While Alien was indeed the jumping off point for this project, out of the creative process evolved a new, grand mythology and universe in which this original story takes place,” Scott explains. “The keen fan will recognize strands of Alien’s DNA, so to speak, but the ideas tackled in this film are unique, large and provocative. I couldn’t be more pleased to have found the singular tale I’d been searching for, and finally return to this genre that’s so close to my heart.”
