I would because I read books more often than I watch movies or TV. I just hope it isn't to soon before the movie. I think books are released a month or a couple weeks before a theatrical release sometimes.

i am the opposite (sadly), i can count how many books i've read in my adult life
on both hands, 3 of which have all been ALIEN related, but i will say that i have
read thousands and thousands of graphic books, so i am hoping there is
a balance in that regard
i read "Aliens" 24 hours before i saw the film, same with Alien3.
which i think lent itself to be being severely disappointed in both of those films
i think i will wait until after i've seen PROMETHEUS
to experience the novelization, i don't want to spoil it for myself

I read a ton, which is good and bad for something like this. I love to read, but years of reading recreationally has made it harder for me to read poorly written material.
I'd love to read a well-written version of this movie, but I doubt a talented science fiction writer, or fiction writer, would do it. Do great authors do stuff like this? I guess I'm not familiar with post-script novelizations. I know 2001 was written at the same time as the script, but that was Kubrick and Clarke.

yeah, 2001 isn't like modern novelizations. I read AVP before it came to the big screen and actually was excited because on paper the story is kind of cool but it just went horribly wrong somewhere. : (
I can't name an author that is well known that has written a movie novelization, but just because I can't remember one right now dosn't mean it hasn't happened.

i read very little
the last book i read was the da vinci code
but talking tape or audio books love them normally have one on the go
so if prometheus come out as an audio book it would deffenatly be on my buy list !

I still have my Dan O'bannon Alien novel! Read it after seeing the film,my first rated-R film.Scared the crap out of me.As a matter of fact,I remember my smart-ass blamed the film for why I got high after getting caught smoking weed a few years later.Mom and Dad didn't buy it.

In the Alien franchise, I've only read the first novelization and enjoyed it. Regarding Prometheus, it all depends on how much I enjoy the film and if I think a novel would help to clarify "foggy" (if any) aspects.

As I said in a similar post I did some weeks ago, I think
Alan Dean Foster would do a superb novelisation of Prometheus.
ShaneOvomorphMember0 XPApr-09-2012 8:34 PM
Timothy Zahn is ok for that stuff as well. He wrote the only "Star Wars" books worth even considering reading.
BubbaChubbsOvomorphMember0 XPApr-09-2012 8:38 PM
Has anyone heard any news of a Prometheus novelization? I scoured the internet and the only movie tie-in I found was the art of Prometheus book.
@Shane - Timothy Zahn's Star Wars books are fantastic!
RSANDOvomorphMember0 XPJun-09-2012 9:19 AM
Sure. I'll read it.

I would read the crap out of a Prometheus novelization. Saw the movie 3 times in the theater. I love dark Sci-fi, so this has turned into my new favorite movie, heh. I agree about Alan Dean Foster. I'm a big Riddick fan and he wrote the novelization for Chronicles and it's quite good. A novelization would be the perfect way to fill in the gaps for those of us who want to know more.

I'd read the novelisation now, as long as it was a three-book job.
2013 sci-fi horror novels 'Custodian' and 'Tandem' available from Amazon, B&N, iTunes etc...
