Fox responds to Prometheus rumors by releasing official synopsis

There's been a lot of buzz on the Intertubes lately about Ridley Scott's Prometheus as we all try to figure out if it's an Alien prequel or not, and whether the recently spotted synopsis is real. The studio's response? Release a synopsis of its own.

Here are the story details Fox put out to clear things up, while at the same time stating that recent reports have been "way off":

Visionary filmmaker Ridley Scott returns to the genre he helped define, creating an original science fiction epic set in the most dangerous corners of the universe. The film takes a team of scientists and explorers on a thrilling journey that will test their physical and mental limits and strand them on a distant world, where they will discover the answers to our most profound questions and to life's ultimate mystery.

Not much to go on ... and it doesn't really answer all our questions ... but at least it's official!

So what do you make of it?
