After the disappointment felt by most on the release of the long awaited Alien Prequel Prometheus, waiting for the next instalment proved to be a nerve-wracking affair.

"Being in this is totally a different deal, respect wise, for my parents - to them this is the first real movie I've been in".

I guess there's always the next "Alien" movie.
