Movie Trailer Of The Day: Prometheus

Sort of an Alien prequel, sort of not. Wikipedia explains:

"Prometheus is an upcoming science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott and written by Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof. The film stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green and Charlize Theron. The plot follows the crew of the spaceship Prometheus in the year 2085, as they explore an advanced alien civilization in search of the origins of humanity.

Conceived as a prequel to Scott's 1979 science fiction horror film Alien, rewrites of Spaihts's script by Lindelof developed a separate story that precedes the events of Alien, but which is not directly connected to the films in the Alien franchise. According to Scott, though the film shares 'strands of Alien's DNA, so to speak,' and takes place in the same universe, Prometheus will explore its own mythology and ideas.

Principal photography began in March 2011, with filming taking place in Canada, England, Iceland, and Spain. Prometheus is scheduled for release between May 30 and June 8, 2012 in various territories through 20th Century Fox."

Whatever it is, it looks intense. I'm sure Pat Collins will love it.


  1. Looks like one that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

  2. Alien is the only film that scared the life out of me. Most horror films are amusing and bad, not scary. If this even comes close ... . I'll pass.

  3. Fassbender, Idris Elba and Charlize?? I'm hot for all three of them! I might have to see this..

  4. The funny thing about prequels made twenty or thirty years after the original is that the people in the prequel, presumably an earlier time than the original film, have better kick-ass technology than the people who presumably lived later.

    Am I making sense here? Think Star Trek and Star Wars.

    Anyway, I'm of the age where I saw Aliens before I saw Alien. Aliens was scary but (intentionally) funny. Alien was just plain scary-creepy. I'm glad I didn't see it as a little kid.

    I didn't like Aliens 3 because (spoiler alert) in the prologue they killed off almost all the people whose survival the audience was invested in in Aliens.

  5. Every time I get a really bad stomachache I worry that an alien baby is going to pop right out. I do like Charlize so I may have to see this one. But I'm bringing my woobie just in case.

  6. I'm withholding judgement until I see what Pat has to say. She's set the bar pretty high. Now I'm off to watch "Shrek 3 " the best Shrek yet.
