Roundup 12.8.11 – PROMETHEUS


For those who missed Damon Lindelof talking about the film earlier with MTV, Micheal Fassbender let loose a spoiler in his interview with the network– and they compounded the spoiler by putting it the headline.

Speaking of early images, Entertainment Weekly has new photos, and Den of Geek has hi-res copies.
