Cinemart Online reports that photos of a prosthetic alien mask design have been leaked from the Prometheus set. There is an uncanny likeness between the leaked photos and the creature known as the “Space Jockey” in Ridley Scotts 1979 film, Alien.
The Prometheus mask design is not a total clone of Ridley Scotts original Alien character, but the similarities are plentiful. Very little is actually known about Scott’s film at this point, so the set photos come as a welcome surprise. What Cinemart say is very little CGI was used in the creation of the alien character in Prometheus and the mask is absolutely designed to be worn by an actor.
Pictures after the jump – avoid if you don’t want to be spoiled!
Prometheus opens in theaters June 8 and stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Logan Marshall-Green, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie and Guy Pearce.
