Following clues to the origin of mankind, a team finds a structure on a distant moon, but they soon realize they are not alone.
The first shot of the cave paintings at the beginning of the film, which showed a horse in motion, originate from the Chauvet Cave in the South of France, which was the subject of the Werner Herzog documentary Cave of Forgotten Dreams (2010), also shot in 3-D.
While watching "Lawrence of Arabia," David has white treatment in his hair. A few seconds later, his hair is clear of the treatment. After another few second the treatment is in hair. However, this sequence shows how David spent two years by himself aboard the ship while the rest of the crew were in cryosleep. The sequence is not necessarily linear, though it could also show David repeating certain activities several times during that two year period (in order to lighten hair, multiple treatments are often required).
The opening credits take place throughout the Engineers' scene on Earth.
