3 New Prometheus Trailers (US, Imax, UK)18.03.12 # Trailers # 7 Comments
There’s a new Prometheus trailer. Three, actually. Similar to each other, but very different to the first. And containing enough spoilers to piece together a significant part of the movie.
US trailer 2 -
Now the IMAX trailer -
And the UK version of trailer 2 -
It looks like they land on the planet seen in the original Alien (where John Hurt gets facehugged), discover a chamber of spores that turn them into the Space Jockeys glimpsed in the first movie. The Space Jockeys, we’re now told, wear a suit, which (sort of) explains the size and face-trunk of the creature glimpsed in the first movie.
Did the story really have to use the old aliens-were-on-earth-and-left-us-cave-paintings idea again? Alien vs. Predator told us the Predators were doing that, and the Transformers did too. Why does everything that happens in the universe have to be so human-centric, what happened to the creepy random encounters of the first Alien? No species on earth is that bothered about us, apart from dogs, so why would species from space care?
Anyway, terrific tension on display here and these are great trailers, especially the US one. Performances, music, and visuals are all top notch. I like how Michael Fassbender is doing an Ian Holm vocal impression. Can’t wait to watch the movie on 1st June in the UK (it’s out a week later in the US). If you haven’t seen the first Alien recently it’s worth doing so before this comes out, as Prometheus is very much based around what you witness in the first thirty minutes.
P.S. That thing below sure looks familiar.
Oh, and there’s a new viral too -
What do you think? Does this make you more or less interested in Ridley Scott’s return to sci-fi?
