TRAILER: Prometheus (2012)

Sunday, 18 March 2012

There's very little I can say without reducing myself to fanboy jibbering, but obviously this is the official trailer for this summer's biggest sci-fi ticket: Prometheus. It's from director Ridley Scott, back playing in the Alien universe he created in 1979 (this being a prequel without the famous xenomorphs, we've been led to believe), and it looks absolutely stunning.

Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba, Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron all star in this. Not excited about their presences? Just look at that phenomenal Giger-y production design, hear the pulse-quickening music, imagine how this story might knit itself into the mysteries of Alien that have gone unexplained for over 30 years (like the identity of that elephant-like "Space Jockey", or the origin of the horseshoe-shaped spaceship the Nostromo crew investigated).

If you're into sci-fi and still not excited, check your pulse.

PROMETHEUS premieres 1 June (UK), 7 June (AUS) & 8 June (US)
