Following clues to the origin of mankind, a team finds a structure on a distant moon, but they soon realize they are not alone.
For the scene of the Prometheus' descent to the alien moon LV-223, Visual Effects Art Director Steven Messing referenced NASA imagery, and aerial photographs of locations in Iceland and Wadi Rum. Messing painted over these images, and combined them with 3-D set extensions, to create a realistic altered landscape.
When David and Elizabeth are discussing the DNA results, you can see Elizabeth from behind with her hand draped over her knee, but when it switches to her face, her hand is against her head.
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"
The film's 70mm and Digital IMAX 3D release was presented open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.90:1, meaning more information was in the frame for the entire film.
