Less than an hour ago, the first trailer for Ridley Scott’s “not a prequel to Alien” “Prometheus” was finally released. And… Well… for a movie that isn’t a prequel to “Alien”… The trailer sure feels like a trailer for an “Alien” movie.
Look, I’m not complaining. Vague as it was, it did look pretty awesome. With Scott returning to sci-fi/ horror and a cast that includes Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, and Guy Pearce star, it is already a foregone conclusion that I’ll be handing over my ticket money when the movie is released on June 8, 2012.
Visionary filmmaker Ridley Scott returns to the genre he helped define, creating an original science fiction epic set in the most dangerous corners of the universe. The film takes a team of scientists and explorers on a thrilling journey that will test their physical and mental limits and strand them on a distant world, where they will discover the answers to our most profound questions and to life’s ultimate mystery.
