After watching the trailer very much looking forward to see this one next year as it got an Alien like haunting-sci fi look all over. But I think with all those press releases so far they are creating too much hype for this movie, IMO.

Yeah, I think it looks bloody brilliant.

But you're right - I hope that the hype isn't too much (don't want my hopes to be let down)...

Whatever, my Geek Senses are tingling... LOVE IT.

After the official release and the hype surrounding the "Prometheus" trailer, TotalFilm caught up with Charlize Theron to find out whether or not her character will be similar to Sigourney Weaver's iconic Ripley role.

"No, I actually don't play the heroine in it; that's Noomi Rapace (Sherlock Holmes 2). I play somewhat of a villain in it," she replied. "She's not a believer, she's not a scientist, she is the red tape that everyone has to go through."

Theron continued: "She's working with the company that's sponsoring this whole thing and you can feel she definitely has an agenda, which we pick up in the third act. She's more quiet thunder."

It sounds like her role will be similar to Paul Reiser's Carter Burke character in "Aliens."

"I was always amazed that no one asked who the hell the Space Jockey was. He wasn’t even called the Space Jockey. During the film they started to call it the Space Jockey. I don’t know who started that one off. I always thought it was amazing that no one ever asked who he was, and why was he there? What was all that about? I sat thinking about this for a while and thought, well, there’s a story! And the other four [films] missed it! So, here it is.

And this one does actually raise all kinds of other questions, because if someone could, a being, could be as monstrously clever to create something like we experienced in the very first one – I always figured it’s a weapon, and I always figured that [the ship in the first Alien] was a carrier of weapons. Therefore, who is that, inside that suit? That wasn’t a skeleton, that was a suit. And if you open up the suit, what do you get inside it? And why were they going, where were they going?"
- Ridley Scott.

New international trailer. Feast your eyes!


A new trailer has been released to promote Ridley Scott’s sci-fi horror Prometheus, and it seems as though the director’s Comic-Con promise to “scare the shit” out of audiences wasn’t an empty one.

The new international teaser doesn’t contain reams of new footage, but it does give us a better look at our crew of interplanetary explorers, as well as plenty of skin-melting unpleasantness.

Anyone hoping for more concrete plot details will surely be disappointed, but in terms of creating an atmosphere of palpable dread, we’d say the new trailer does the job rather nicely.

We still don’t know what it is the human crew uncover in the outer regions of the universe, but whatever it is seems likely to be none too thrilled at being found.

We’ll be watching through our fingers when the film opens in the UK on 1 June 2012.

The plot of Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus' has been kept fairly secret since it's appeared on our radar like a looming planet in the sky.

Is it a sequel to the seminal sci-fi film 'Alien'?
Is it a prequel?
Is it just in the same universe?

Scott's spilled a bean or two recently, and while it's only a small detail, we're sucking it up like a hungry face-hugger. The first link between the two movies is Guy Pearce's character, a businessman who owns the ship Prometheus.

Total Film ferreted out the following information Scott quote from fansite AVPGalaxy:

Quote:
"When the first 'Alien' movie and 'Blade Runner' were made, I thought that in the near future the world will be owned by large companies. This is why we have the Tyrell Corporation in 'Blade Runner', and Weyland-Yutani in 'Alien'. They sent the Nostromo spaceship.

"The Prometheus is owned by an entrepreneur called Peter Weyland, and is played by Guy Pearce. That's the connection between the two films, and nothing more. 'Prometheus' is a new film, a new world, and is full of new ideas. And of course new monsters as well."
Assuming this quote is real, it possibly falls into a bit into conflict with Scott’s early statement where he said that the last eight minutes of Prometheus would evolve into “a pretty good DNA of the Alien one.” Then again, he could be saying that Weyland doesn’t have any connection beyond being on the ship rather than having a direct influence on the Weyland-Yutani’s acts in the future movies, and he could be part of those final eight minutes.

Although, it would provide a bit of a nice tie-in to why the Nostromo would go to the Space Jockey planet, especially since Ash (Ian Holm) says that he was ordered to bring the creature back to the corporation.

Finally, to provide a “canon” time-line, Alien vs. Predator, which introduces Charles Bishop Weyland (Lance Henriksen), takes place in 2004. Prometheus takes place in the 21st century (considering the technological advancements, probably late in the 21st century), and Alien is in 2122.

The film also stars Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba, and Michael Fassbender.

Prometheus opens in 3D on June 8th.
