Okay, this is awesome. In Paris, the long-abandoned Saint-Martin subway stop was given a Prometheus-themed makeover to promote the film. If there are any TR readers in the City of Lights, do me a favor and ride this for me, okay? It’s an inspired bit of marketing that will briefly revitalize a long dormant structure — and probably creep out commuters in the process. All I know is that I’m going to be deeply disappointed if R?mi Gaillard doesn’t buy himself one of these Alien suits and have some fun with this. (Via i09)
