Charlize Theron talks <em>Prometheus</em> It certainly has been a Prometheus-filled week, with the first trailer debuting yesterday, in anticipation of its June 8 release. Actress Charlize Theron recently spoke about her character in Ridley Scott's sci-fi tale, revealing that she plays one of the villains.

"No, I actually don't play the heroine in it, that's Noomi Rapace. I play somewhat of a villain in it. She's not a believer, she's not a scientist, she is the red tape that everyone has to go through. She's working with the company that's sponsoring this whole thing and you can feel she definitely has an agenda, which we pick up in the third act. She's more quiet thunder."

When asked if there will be a chest-bursting scene like in Ridley Scott's 1979 sci-fi classic Alien, the actress dropped a subtle hint.

"Maybe! I mean if you're a Ridley Scott fan and you love the genre, then you're going to be happy. You're going to be very, very happy."
