This is a must buy for any fan of the movie or the Alien saga.

It really helps to understand why the movie looks how it looks, and how Prometheus is basically an Alien Reboot.

The similarities in the designs, the cut scenes (the Fifield alien really makes you remember the cut scene of the Alien walking towards Lambert, walking with its legs on front and his hands on the background).

For some of the "confused" viewers it will clear up lots of doubts (for example, the whole Ritual at the beginning with the sacrifice being sketched entirely), or why Fifield looks how it looks, why the Facehugger/Squid...etc.

The book itself is visually stunning. After the release of the Bluray with the documentaries, I would like they release a second part of the book with more details about the practical effects, which were MANY!
Some people think most was CGI, but for example, even the self-surgery had practical effects!!

Well, lets be honest, the story of Prometheus wasn't all that great. A bit of a mish-mash, wasn't it? No doubt the result of the mid-stream change in direction from an Alien-prequel to a, well, Alien-universe movie, it was all a bit confused and confusing. It seems though that through all the plot shifts, rewrites and changes of writing staff, the art direction at least stayed on one course. Ridley Scott definitely knew what he wanted the film to look like.

Prometheus: The Art of the Film then shows off the best bits of the film - its production art and design - and does it really well.

It would probably be better entitled Prometheus: the Design of the Film because this is not just a collection of concept art. No, framed in a nice hardback jacket that suggests coffee table residency, this book contains alternate designs, Ridleygrams (the director's doodled storyboards), still photos (both from the movie and 'backstage) and matte paintings alongside descriptions of all these pieces from the production crew themselves. Its not quite a full on 'making of', but there's as much to read and digest as there is to simply ogle. There are some great insights into inspirations for some of the designs seen in the movie as well as clues to Easter eggs and the answers to some of the film's more vexing questions.

Promtheus is not the first 'Alien' movie to suffer in the writing department. But it is also true that all four Alien movies still have very definite visual identities. Prometheus continues, sadly, both these traditions, but 'The Art of the Film' is still well worth getting hold of, both for those who loved the movie and for those who were perhaps a little less satisfied with Ridley Scott's latest flick.
