After the official release of the Prometheus trailer yesterday, we have even more questions than answers (which isn't a bad thing). However, for those who are looking for more details on the characters in the film, Charlize Theron offered more details about her character's role in the film:

**Spoiler Warning** In answer to whether or not here character was similar to Ripley, she confirms that she's taking more of a villain role in the film: “No, I actually don’t play the heroine in it; that’s Noomi Rapace. I play somewhat of a villain in it.... She’s not believer, she’s not a scientist, she is the red tape that everyone has to go through.... She’s working with the company that’s sponsoring this whole thing and you can feel she definitely has an agenda, which we pick up in the third act. She’s more quiet thunder.”

And just to tease us a little bit more, here was her answer when asked by Total Film if Prometheus would have the equivalent of a chest bursting scene in it: “Maybe! I mean if you’re a Ridley Scott fan and you love the genre, then you’re going to be happy. You’re going to be very, very happy.”
