Initial reports about 'Prometheus' indicated it would be a prequel to the original 'Alien' film. The story is said to precede the events that took place in 'Alien,' though 'Prometheus' seems to be more of a stand-alone film. In the movie, the crew of the spaceship Prometheus are sent on an expedition to try and find the origins of humanity. The explorers do make a startling discovery -- one that could threaten the very existence of the human race. In short: Things go very wrong in deep space!If you're looking for more blockbuster movie quotes, check out these lists for the best lines from 'Men in Black III,' 'Snow White and the Huntsman,' 'The Avengers,' 'Battleship,' 'The Cabin in the Woods,' 'Chernobyl Diaries,' 'Dark Shadows,' 'The Hunger Games,' 'Chronicle,' 'What to Expect When You're Expecting,' and 'The Dictator.'
We Were Wrong
When the crew of the Prometheus sets out, they believe they are investigating the origins of mankind. They think they know -- but they definitely don't.
Elizabeth Shaw: "My God, we were so wrong..."
Going to Die
Meredith Vickers knows more than she's saying, perhaps. No doubt she's well aware that the crew members are putting their lives at risk on this mission, but does she care? This warning suggests she does, despite the fact that she's a company rep.
Meredith Vickers: "If you go down there, you're going to die."
The discovery of a star map that may link together vastly different, ancient cultures on Earth, is the catalyst for the Prometheus mission. The crew will use this map to explore an alien race, in hopes of determining whether this race helped life evolve on Earth.
Charlie Holloway: "These are images of archaeological digs all over the Earth: ancient civilizations that shared no contact. And yet, the same pictogram on every last one of them."
Fifield: "It's a star map?"
Elizabeth Shaw: "No, not a map -- an invitation."
Fifield: "From whom?"
They Were Right
Elizabeth's images from the exploration of the life-sustaining moon are stunning. They also may be the key discovery: An alien civilization that was essentially the race that led to humanity.
Elizabeth Shaw: "Prometheus, are you seeing this?"
Meredith Vickers: "They were right..."
Janek: "You wanted them to be wrong?"
