This sci-fi adventure and horror mystery, directed by Ridley Scott,  tells a story of how humanity may have come to be, and who or what we really are.  It is also a shocking prequel to the Alien movies dating back to 1979.  The adventure begins when humans arrive at a strange planet far from Earth, seemingly at the invitation of an advanced race of aliens.  But things are not as friendly as we were expecting when one shocking discovery leads to another in a story that asks more questions than it answers.   Are we simply the product of evolution, or was there help?  From whom?  What if they changed their minds?  Why?  With  Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green. Rated R (124 min.) mike laib 2012.

Classroom Tips:

1. Preview both the movie and its lesson. Lesson and movie are in the same sequence.
2. Within the lesson, decide which quotes, questions, and vocabulary to focus on. Highlight or cut-and-paste content you plan to use.
3. Estimate how you'll use available time for both watching and discussing the movie.
4. Remember: Most questions on the lesson are easy for a native speaker of English to answer, so the movie itself is the answer key.
5. Assessments are at http://www.moviesgrowenglish.com/Assessments.html.
