Prometheus: The Art Of The Film,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Prometheus: The Art of the Film (Film Tie in) (Hardcover)
With a film that has definitely polarised audiences, for the record I liked it, but after reading this movie art book from Titan Books, there is no doubt that a lot of detail was put into the making of Prometheus.
Presented in the usual hardback art format, the book is introduced by director Ridley Scott, and Production Designer Arthur Max, and is packed full of gorgeous conceptual art, sculptures, sketches, including a selection of storyboards by Ridley Scott himself, plus photos from behind the scenes and from the final film.
But, as is the way with these types of books, it is always recommended that you see the film before picking this up. With all the luscious design art documenting the making of the film from start to finish, there are a ton of spoilers, especially from the last act of the film. But if you have seen the film, it might also answer a few questions about the film that you might have after you come out of the cinema, or raise a few more.
Overall, if you like the film, love behind the scenes look at films, or love conceptual art then I would say get yourself a copy of this book. Money definitely well spent!
