Prometheus Trailer Drops
The day I have been waiting for is finally here, I present to you the teaser trailer for Prometheus:
I have no doubt that this film can but disappoint, the expectation is almost too high to be fulfilled by even the most accomplished movie. As a concept, Prometheus ticks so many boxes in what I would consider to be my perfect film; thoughtful sci-fi, the origin of man, sacry ass aliens, xenomorphs even, cool looking spaceships, twisting of an established mythology and thrilling revelations.
So what did we see that may point us in the right direction of what to expect for this, surely Scott’s magnum opus:
- For once in a prequel the tech looks right, the ships and transports look like they’re from the same universe as Alien and even Aliens, just a little more low tech and new.
- Is that a Space Jockey head in the medical scanner? Sure does look like one to me.
- I have some feelings that in some way, we may be responsible for the traditional Alien we know from Scott’s original film. I know that is not the story that has been doing the rounds, more that the Space Jockeys created us and the Aliens but I’m not so sure. There is a lot of labwork going on in this trailer which could hint to us being the creators of our own downfall…and it would give the whole series a nice bit of ironic symmetry.
- ‘They went looking for our beginning, what they found could be our end’…that’s all I’m saying
Roll on 8th June 2012.
