LONDON (AP) -- "Prometheus" is landing in London.
The world premiere of Sir Ridley Scott's new sci-fi thriller takes place in Leicester Square on Thursday night.
Stars Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender and Guy Pearce will join the director by touching down on a special blue carpet to meet fans.
"Prometheus" takes its title from the spaceship in the story. The vessel goes on a mission to explore signs of alien life and the origins of mankind.
The film is much anticipated because it marks Scott's return to the sci-fi genre after classics such as "Alien" and "Blade Runner."
"Prometheus" opens in the U.K. on Friday and in the United States on June 8.
