Late Night Trailers: Prometheus

There's no speaking in the trailer for Ridley Scott's Prometheus, but sometimes all we really need are pure visuals.  This is Scott's return to science fiction, a genre he hasn't touched since 1982's Blade Runner (one of my faves).  Of course, Prometheus has more in common with Alien (another one of my faves), as it follows a group of scientist types traveling to a distant planet to investigate man's origins.  Deep space travel? Giger aesthetics?  Bad things will happen.  There's been a significant amount of speculation as to whether or not the film is a prequel, sequel, or firmly rooted to the Alien series at all, as Scott stated awhile back that Prometheus will not use the original xenomorph monster.  Still, the title fade in here (recognize it?) has me incredibly excited. Prometheus has a great cast lined up for all its horrors.  Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Patrick Wilson, and Idris Elba are all on board; you can bet I am as well.  As soon as this pops into theaters next June, I will be there and I will probably be way more high energy than I should be.

  1. YESSS. I knew nothing of this movie except Ridley Scott and somehow Alien-related. Now it's the movie I look forward to most.

  2. The play is both moving and upsetting, when you think of those unfortunate boys and adolescent men being needlessly gassed and maim in the trenches.
