Let it be Prometheus

BCer Claire has asked us to post this, as part of a mission she has been assigned by Secret Cinema. Ordinarily, we'd say no, but since we're also going to the same event, we're hoping that this will in some way pay off for us too:

Cinema lovers, scientists, science fictioners, researchers, osteo-archaelogists and anthropologists- Brave New Ventures are running a recruitment drive that is well worth your time. See www.bravenewventures.org for more information. Or #bravenewventures @Bravenewventure. Upmost discretion required. Tell no one.

It has to be the new Prometheus.

Nah secret Cinema do classics...

what you really mean is that you should hope it isn't Prometheus. Go see it at the Imax to get the full effect. Seeing it on some shonky projector in the middle of a warehouse/field will ruin it would be like drinking 1 part whiskey, two parts water. I have my tickets already..


sounds like Bladerunner?

Brockley Nick said...

Fair point. And as IMAX is one of my team's clients, I wholeheartedly agree. They have already done Bladerunner though (at Canary Wharf).

They have done Bladerunner and Ridley Scott turned up to introduce the movie once...so he knows of Secret Cinema and what they do. Prometheus comes out June 1st...as does this Secret Cinema. Blatantly Prometheus.

Prometheus (from what I've read and understand about the film) is one of those films that will deliver most when it's seen in the most immersive way possible. I saw Avatar at the IMAX and frankly the film is pretty guff. Yet I came out of there absolutely applauding Cameron for a game changing experience. I saw it again on Sky and it was predictably ordinary. I want Prometheus to be a great film so I wouldn't want to blow my first viewing on anything less than IMAX Waterloo. The best screen in London, probably the UK.

My partner also agrees, though I've been saying I think it is Prometheus for a couple of weeks, he has been saying "I hope it's not". There does seem to be a lot of links to it, though they also point in a similar way to Alien. Who knows.

I am more than a little excited. Nick is your meeting point at the statue?

Could it be 'Moon'? great film featuring corporations and space...

could be Alien.

Brockley Nick said...

Moon would be good as the copy at Sounds Around "only works on laptops" and thus I have never got around to seeing it.

I got an email from my Running Club (Who've been asked by SC to do a mass running event as part of this) that said that this is going to be "A new Hollywood Blockbuster". I wouldn't normally post about the Secret Film but given I'm going to see Prometheus at the IMAX two days after I was going to go to SC that would have been a bit of a bummer. I'm sure the experience will be awesome but I'm psyched to see this at IMAX.

May well go and see the SC version after I've seen the IMAX one...

I went to buy my boiler suit from Brave New Ventures today, which is where the screening will take place. I don't think it will be a selection of small screens, it will be one big one, and, by the sounds of things, it will have a huge sound system.

Plus, it was staffed by doctors and scientists who were straight out of a Fedde Le Grand video.
