Prometheus

(R) ★★★☆☆

Ridley Scott returns to the big screen in this sort-of Alien prequel, and the result is a little bit of everything. Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) is an archaelogist leading a space mission in search of a link between human and alien DNA. What she finds is trouble. With Charlize Theron on board as a tougher-than-Ripley type, Idris Elba as the ship’s captain and Michael Fassbender as an excellently off-putting android, the film works as elegant and stately sci-fi. The writing’s not the best, but Scott’s a pro.

Big River Revival

Those talented kids at the Las Vegas Academy of International Studies, Performing and Visual Arts are at it again. The magnet high school’s Theatre Department will be taking its sixth production to the International Thespian Society’s annual festival in Lincoln, Neb., June 25-30. Big River: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn originally ran in November, and was chosen as a Mainstage Selection for the festival. But before they go, the approximately 100 students involved need a helping hand from the community.
