So if you haven't seen this trailer by now, you should probably just get off the internet forever.
Prometheus is the HIGHLY anticipated prequel to Alien. The cast is stellar; Noomi Rapace, Aussie Guy Pearce, Charlize Theron and the incriedible Michael Fassbender (mmm... Fassy...) and Ridley Scott is helming the project, so you know it's going to be good.
Now, I'm not gonna lie I haven't seen Alien (I know, the shame) but this movie is everywhere. Literally everywhere and everyone is talking about it. However success is not a stranger to Sydney based VFX studio Fuel VFX.
Born in 2000 Fuel boasts a client list of Baz Luhrmann's Australia, Cowboys & Alien, Mission Impossible and have clearly found dedicated clients in the Marvel universe, working on the whole Avengers crew; Iron Man 2, Captain America, Thor and of course this year's blockbuster The Avengers.
So what have we learnt? Two things specifically. The first, if you need VFX these guys should probably be your first port of call. Remember that the next time you and your friend thumbtack a sheet to your garage wall in lieu of a green screen, I'm sure they do pro-bono work.
The second, safe to say if they weren't already dominating, Fuel is definitely making paper thus bringing more and more of the entertainment industry to our humble country and for this I thank them.
Now discuss, Alien SEQUEL, dnw or...? I wonder if little Fassy will make a sophomore appearance?
