The Associated Press, Thursday, May 31, 2012, 3:57am (PDT)

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.
