How's this for a Father's Day conversation piece: an Alien reboot with Daddy issues?
In the film Prometheus, questioning where humans come from, scientists Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green) board the spaceship Prometheus bound for a planet far from Earth that's depicted in cave drawings. The crew includes amiable Capt. Janek (Idris Elba), corporate suit Vickers (Charlize Theron) and android David (Michael Fassbender, courtly and fiendish in equal doses).
Thanks to director Ridley Scott's 1979 Alien, we know not to trust the droid. In fact, once the film's first hour puts the pieces in place, it's obvious how the second will unfold. Having taught us the Alien vocabulary of squidlike predators that infest humans, then burst out as even more horrific monsters, Scott can hardly be surprised that we know what's coming.

When it comes to romance, Michael Fassbender doesn't necessarily mix work and play – even if his current girlfriend is his former costar.
"Nothing happened while we were filming," he tells GQ magazine in its June issue, confirming his relationship with Shame actress Nicole Beharie, 27. "We started talking more on the promotion thing. So, yeah, it just sort of unfolded like that."
The two first garnered buzz after they were photographed in New York City.
