Prometheus Trailer: Ridley Scott’s 2012 Space Odyssey


In space, no one can hear you scream, but here on Earth, everyone can hear you BRAMMM! And so it is that the new trailer for Ridley Scott's heavily anticipated pseudo-prequel to Alien makes use of those heavy horns that have become so pervasive in movie advertising since Inception, but when the briskly edited sci-fi material here is so compelling, who can argue with the sell? Scott teases the spaceships and caves filled with ominously gridded egg placement that you might expect from a movie that "shares DNA" with the Alien series, but there's also waterfalls, dust storms, and a very intriguing plot hint: This team of spacemen (which includes Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, and Idris Elba) goes looking for the beginning of life itself, and instead finds something epic that will probably pick them off one by one, if the other movies are any indication. Place your bets on the death order below!
