R | | Adventure, Mystery, Sci-Fi
Following clues to the origin of mankind, a team finds a structure on a distant moon, but they soon realize they are not alone.
While Ridley Scott suggested that the cast could have slept and effectively "lived" on the Prometheus interior set during initial filming, this didn't happen due to health and safety precautions.
When Charlie is describing the civilizations that provided the clues and star maps leading them to the distant moon, he explains that these civilizations were all separated by centuries and had no contact. In this list he includes Sumerians, Babylonians, and Egyptians (among others). The Babylonian Empire rose out of the city-states of the Sumerians, borrowing heavily from their language, culture, and religions. It is also well known that the people of Sumer/Babylon had much contact with the ancient Egyptians via trade and war.
There is a statement at the end of the closing credits: "Previous Footage Property of Weyland Corp. Building Better Worlds Since 10.11.12. weylandindustries.com/timeline"
