While this may look like yet another Prometheus post, I can assure you it is not. This is a Charlize Theron post.
See, if I had it my way– I would be posting stuff about Charlize Theron on Inveterate Media Junkies every single day (ask Ian about her sometime)… But even with at least one of us having a personal connection, a daily post called “Charlize! 365 Days a Year!” would probably get really weird, really fast. So instead, I attempt to write columns about Ms. Theron under the guise of something that might seem sorta geek related, like say, Snow White and the Huntsman or Ridley Scott’s Prometheus.
So, in truth, this post is not about Prometheus at all… But will instead be about showcasing a cool Charlize Theron film featurette– that is from Prometheus.
I also added a Coors Light beer commercial purely as a smoke screen. The fact that the ad has nothing to do with Charlize Theron is just to throw you off my true intent (and lessen the weirdo factor). Plus, both of these things just happen to involve Scott’s new movie– so I’m in the clear, right?
I’m not really going to talk about how awesome the featurette is. Since Theron is in it, awesomeness should be a given.
I will, however, note how this Coors Light beer commercial is one of the more ridiculous cross-promotions I’ve seen in a while for a film I genuinely am looking forward to… A film that should really be above this sort of nonsense. I mean, c’mon. If Prometheus was going to align itself with a beer– wouldn’t Guinness or Heineken have been a better choice… Not some terrible American beer that tastes like piss?
If this is a sign of things to come, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised when Axe Body Spray and Carl’s Jr. cross-promotions start popping up in Ridley’s upcoming Blade Runner sequel.
Man. Writing that last line made me almost vomit.
Prometheus will be released on June 8th in the US.
