Let’s Play The Idris Elba “Prometheus” Guessing Game

Let's Play The Idris Elba "Prometheus" Guessing Game

First here’s the good news. Prometheus has offically gotten an R rating from the MPAA for “sci-fi violence and intense images.”

WHEW! That’s a relief! Everybody was thinking that they would tame the film to get a neutured,  family friendly PG-13, to get a more broader and scaredy-cat audience. Thank God they came to their senses. C’mon this is an Alien film which means we must have our blood and guts.

But to the bad news. You know it. I know it. Everyone knows it. Even though this is perhaps the most anticipated film this summer, you just know that our man Idris is going to bite the dust (and perhaps really horribly too) sometime during the film. He”s the only black guy in the movie. Need I say more?

So let’s play a guessing game. How far do you think Idris will make it in the film before he bites it? 35 minutes? 45 minutes? An hour? How about just after the opening credits? What’s your guess?

Might as well start thinking about it now so you won’t be all bummed out when it happens in the movie.
