David Bowie is a total, unimpeachable legend, the kind of man who need not add anything else to his incredible legacy. But if, for whatever reason, you need something else to make him, oh, one of the best people to ever breathe (don’t even try and question that label), look toward some recent quotes from Michael Fassbender.
The Irish-German lothario told The Huffington Post that, when crafting his Prometheus character, David, he looked toward both The Thin White Duke and Olympic swimmer Greg Louganis — a man possibly immortalized with this painful moment. Glancing at the picture above makes some of that inspiration rather obvious — if on a purely aesthetic level — while Fassbender noted that Louganis had a “weird walk [that] made me laugh.” (Back at WonderCon, the “economy of movement” on his part was also cited as a start point.) Fun stuff, and I hope we can see those cues come through onscreen.
Meanwhile, HeyUGuys have posted a couple of new shots from the film — which, though not necessarily breaking the established mold of promotional images, are rather nice. None of them make me more or less excited, but these little peeks are nice in the meantime.
Take a look below:
Prometheus opens on June 8th.
