‘Prometheus’ Trailer Out

'Prometheus' Trailer Out‘Prometheus’ Trailer Out, Monday was all about The Dark Knight Rises and Tuesday was the day for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, but today the only movie that we can think about is Prometheus. 20th Century Fox released the first trailer for Ridley Scott’s science-fiction epic this morning and none of us can stop thinking about it (seriously, it’s that amazing).

But what does the trailer tell us about the movie itself? Thus far very little information about the new film has gotten out and this is the first time that we’ve seen actual footage from the movie (not counting those silly trailer previews that started coming out earlier this week). After watching the first look at Prometheus for the thousandth time, I decided to make a list of things that it teaches us about the film. So without further ado, here we go:

Prometheus was born as a prequel to Ridley Scott’s classic 1979 film Alien, but somewhere along the line there was a major shift and it was said that the project was actually going to be an entirely original film separate from the xenomorph universe – but we’ve had our doubts. Leaks from the set have suggested that there will be some connection, but Scott has denied them all. But this trailer has Alien DNA all over it. For starters, the way that the title is revealed is a perfect mimic of both the opening of Alien as well as that film’s first trailer. Speaking of that trailer, Prometheus even goes as far as to use the same music. Oh, and have I mentioned that we clearly see the space jockey seat at the 44 second mark? Watch the first Alien trailer below to see what we mean.

When you hear about a movie focusing on a group of explorers (including hotties like Swedish Girl With the Dragon Tattoo star Noomi Rapace and Charlize Theron) journeying to the ends of the universe in hopes of finding out the origins of mankind, only to then have the responsibility of saving the human race slammed on their shoulders, you get super pumped to find out what happens, right?

Well, the trailer for the June 2012 flick has been released and after watching it, we learned…

Not much.

We do get a number of quick snapshots of scenes in outer space, with some running, yelling, pleading and explosions. It’s intercut with the tagline text, “They went looking for our beginning. What they found, could be our end.”

Oh, and about a split second of Idris Elba’s face.

Well, you succeeded, teaser trailer: We want more! Not just of Elba’s face, but of Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Patrick Wilson, and maybe a confirmation that this is indeed a prequel to Alien?
