PROMETHEUS Sequel Recap: What We Know About the Possible Follow-Up So Far

"The real question to me is – the more mankind discovers in science the more clear and helpful everything becomes, yet we’re very bad at managing ourselves. And one of the biggest problems in the world is what we call religion, it causes more problems than anything in the goddamn universe. Think about what’s happening now, all based on the very simple idea that a Muslim can’t live alongside a Catholic, or a Catholic can’t live alongside a Protestant…"

In Company Men, Hollywood Gives Hope to Main St. -
Mr. Jones, as the fictional Gene McClary, and Mr. Cooper, as his longtime right-hand man, Phil Woodward, are a couple of suddenly unemployed shipbuilding executives who have been drinking, philandering and otherwise acting out their rage and confusion at having lost jobs in the current economic troubles.
They’re too old to get new jobs, and too proud to stop trying. Along with Ben Affleck, who plays Bobby Walker, a sidelined fellow executive from a rapidly downsizing conglomerate, the company men McClary and Woodward are trying to jump-start new lives, while kicking some life into America’s dreary economy.
They have been quick enough to spot Wall Street gone awry. This year, “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,” directed by Oliver Stone, and a pair of documentaries, “Inside Job,” directed by Charles Ferguson, and “Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer,” directed by Alex Gibney, all chronicle in one way or another the sins of a financial industry that lost its moorings.
