Sweet (Teaser) Trailer…'Prometheus'

For the last three days we’ve been teased about the forthcoming teaser to Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. The so-called prequel to his first iconic sci-fi film Alien this takes place long before the Nostromo crew first touched down on LV-426. From the looks of it we can expect to learn a little more about the Space Jockey mythology fans have been waiting for and of course intense Scott-style action. If you look up epic in the dictionary you’ll see just two words; Ridley and Scott. The man was born to create larger than life adventures and is truly one of the very best directors of all time. So enough padding his ego, behold the teaser to Prometheus

When it was first reported that Ridely would be retuning to this universe it provoked both cheers and jitters from fans the world over. Most everyone on the planet would undoubtedly love to see the series righted after the recent disappointing and insulting installments. However, going back to the beginning is always worrisome because there’s a chance that, even with Ridely on board, you could end up with terrible book ends on either side of his 1979 masterpiece. Buuut if this trailer is any indication of the quality to be expected next year, then we really have nothing at all to worry about.

Starring an insanely impressive and talented cast which includes Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce, Noomi Rapace and Patrick Wilson, Fox has slated Prometheus for release this Summer on June 8th 2012. What say you space jockey fans?? Does this look good to you?? Anyone still hesitant??

  • This looks intriguing but that darn title that slowly forms in front of all the action is utterly distracting!! I hope they don’t do that with every single trailer, that’s just dumb.

    • Well it plays up the nostalgic feel of the original. Still with the gorgeous visuals, I agree it only gets in the way. I bet they cool it from here on in.

  • If it’s not 100% clear that this is an Alien prequel at this point, then, well, I don’t know how else Scott can convince anyone. Which is weird, since he’s been actively trying to veil just how significant the connection is between both films.

    Anyways. Looks awesome. This is an easy mark for me in 2012, though I have reservations about it nonetheless.

    • You and I are in complete agreement Andrew:P
