Prometheus June 2012
December 23, 2011 by staff
Prometheus June 2012, Now that Fox has released the first trailer for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, we can get into the top five things once again. But rather do a like and dislike format, this article will be about the five things I learned about the Prometheus trailer. The film which is scheduled to be released June 8th, 2012, stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, and also Guy Pearce. But even though we didn’t get to see too much of our characters or any bit of the story itself, you couldn’t help but feel a spine tingling sensation run down your spine. So here are the five things I learned from the new Prometheus trailer.
5. Ridley Scott Returns To a Genre He Redefined.
Honestly, the lack of dialogue didn’t bother me one bit, but the sheer terror of weird noises followed by hallowing shrieks, terrified me. Watching the people suffering in agony and others run for their lives is another aspect I liked about this trailer. And the fact that it takes place in space, where no one hears you scream is another thing. But Prometheus marks the Ridley Scott’s return to a genre he refined. Sure h’s has had run ins with Robin Hood, and that was just a failure, then there was Body of Lies, which didn’t live up to anyone’s expectations, so its only fair for the director to go back to his roots. Crossing our fingers that he redefines sci-fi horror with Prometheus.
4. The Connections to Alien
Back to the “in space no one hears you scream” tagline, you notice that the Prometheus trailer plays very similar to the 1979 Alien trailer, almost beat for beat. That same cold opening followed by a couple of indescribable images with the title slowly coming to the screen is just the tip of the iceberg. That same cold shriek plays as well. Making the connection to the goop and the acid in the trailer would be a stretch, and I wouldn’t blame you if you used that as an example that Prometheus and Alien are the same. But if you need another example, you can look at the space jockey that is present in the movive trailer. As it stands, Ridley Scott will continue to say Prometheus only has strands of Alien DNA, and is not entirely connected to the Alien mythology.
3. Again, nothing about the story is revealed, and that is fine.
We hear someone apologize at the very beginning, but after that its just a montage of scenes of fear, exploration, screams, dissection, and running. The Prometheus trailer only ran for about a minute and ten seconds, which isn’t enough time to tell you too much about the story, except for the fact that their search for the beginning could bring our end.
2. If Ridley Scott could make Alien (1979) look good, just imagine what he could do with Prometheus.
Taking a look at Alien and the looking at just the teaser for Prometheus, I just can imagine what this film would look like, especially in 3D. The props the set pieces, all of it looks just as good if not better than what Ridley Scott had done for Alien in 1979. Visually Prometheus looks stunning, jaw dropping at best. Watching ships fly the deep vastness of space was such a wonder.
1. No Aliens, but something is threatening our explorers
Ridley Scott strongly denied that the xenomorph will appear in Prometheus, but upon closer inspection, there is acid on the face of one of the space explorers, followed by lots of running. Again there are a lot of connections between Aliens and Prometheus, so Ridley Scott can deny all he wants. We don’t know what is threatening the space crew, all we know that it is out there, and the fear of not knowing what it is perhaps just as scary as knowing what it is.
