In the distant future, two superpowers control Earth and fight each other for all the solar system’s natural resources. When one side dispatches a team to a distant planet to terraform it for human colonization, the team discovers an indigenous race of bio-mechanoid killers.
Ridley Scott, director of ‘Alien’ and ‘Blade Runner,’ returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
Honestly this movie is just one giant grand epic and absolutely breathtakingly astonishing movie. Prometheus builds upon the previous two trailers that we have seen and adds to the vague details we’ve been getting so far. But vague is good in this case as it works for the marketing of the movie.
Directed by Ridley Scott, and written by Damon Lindelof & Jon Spaiths, Prometheus stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall, Logan Marshall-Green, Guy Pearce, and Patrick Wilson. The movie will hit theaters June 8, 2012.
Other-worldy horrors await a team of space explorers in the IMAX trailer for filmmaker Ridley Scott’s return to the ‘Alien’ universe, ‘Prometheus’.
20th Century Fox’s drip, drip, dropping of footage from Prometheus may be tedious to endure, but it’s proven pretty effective for generating lots of buzz around filmmaker Ridley Scott’s sci-fi flick. The studio has clearly recognized that, in this day and age, trailers for highly-anticipated film projects (like this) are events unto themselves – and have been (shrewdly?) exploiting fan interest in learning more about Scott’s return to the Alien universe.
Following the premiere of a trailer preview clip earlier this week, we now have the full-length IMAX trailer for Prometheus. Similar to the teaser trailer, the IMAX preview mixes shrieking flashes of violence and disturbing events with darkly sumptuous visuals of a gloomy extraterrestrial world – along with a solid outline of the plot that still avoids revealing all of the film’s secrets.
Prometheus stars such well-established thespians as Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, and Logan Marshall-Green (Devil) as futuristic astronauts who undertake “a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe,”in pursuit of clues which could explain humanity’s origins on Earth. Events thereafter take a turn for the worse when those space explorers discover things they were never meant to know (as foreshadowed by the film’s mythological title) and must fight to not only keep themselves alive, but to preserve the continued existence of humankind.
Get a better look at those troubling events in the above full Prometheus IMAX trailer.

While there’s a good chunk of imagery on display here that directly recalls Alien (such as Rapace in her underwear, battling an unknown threat aboard the eponymous ship), the cutting-edge CGI effects mixed with H.R. Giger-style practical sets – and the prominent mythological narrative themes teased here not only look and sound quite unique, but also pretty fantastic based solely on their own merits.
Similarly, there are some cool “money shots” that hint at the film’s connection to Alien – the most tantalizing of which is arguably the Space Jockey suit being mechanically peeled off its enigmatic (alien?) host. It’s no spoiler to say that Prometheus (in part) reveals the backstory of that creature – that’s been confirmed for a while now – though what exactly the “new monsters” glimpsed all too briefly here are, that remains a secret (for now).
Overall, Prometheus continues to look like a fantastic brew of sci-fi existential dread and visceral horror that could indeed (as primary screenwriter Damon Lindelof has put it) “scare the living shit out of you.” It won’t be the biggest blockbuster of the summer, no doubt, but it certainly has the potential to be one of the best.
Look for Prometheus to open in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D theaters around the U.S. on June 8th, 2012.
