WATCH: New international trailer for Prometheus hits the web!

Posted by Max Lalanne on April 30, 2012


An international trailer has been released for the upcoming Prometheus, which only serves – in all of its nearly 3-minute-long glory –  to pump me up even more for the highly-anticipated sci-fi blockbuster, which will be released in the US, the UK, and other countries June 1st. We get to see some glimpses at aliens!

Ridley Scott’s newest project has been stirring up excitement for quite a while now, with many still wondering the connection this has to 1989’s Alien (which was also directed by Scott, of course) for with Prometheus shares extremely similar storylines, characters, and even visuals – though in this video, I also got an Avatar-esque vibe from all the massive spaceships descending and so forth.

In Prometheus, “a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darket corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.” Charlize Theron headlines an intriguing cast which includes Noomi Rapace (who played Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba, and Guy Pearce.

These are images of archaelogical digs all around the Earth. Ancient civilizations that shared no contact…and yet. The same pictogram in every last one.”

It’s a starmap.

No. Not a starmap. An imitation.”

From whom?”
