If you even remotely follow sci-fi movie news, then you've no doubt heard several times by now that Ridley Scott's new sci-fi movie, Prometheus, is not an Alien movie and will "absolutely not" have the iconic black xenomorphs, yada yada yada. Well, call us crazy, but the new trailer for Prometheus looks exactly like an Alien movie, except without, you know, any Aliens in it. Need some proof? Well, one fan has edited a new teaser trailer for Alien in the style of Prometheus that makes a pretty convincing case for the two movies sharing more than simply "DNA."
Here's the teaser trailer for Alien edited by heresjohnny1991:
And, here's the new trailer for Prometheus so that you can compare the two:
Prometheus was written by Damon Lindelof (Cowboys and Aliens) from a script originally written by Jon Spaihts (The Darkest Hour). The cast includes Michael Fassbender as David, Charlize Theron as Meredith Vickers, Noomi Rapace as Elizabeth Shaw, Idris Elba as Captain Janek, Guy Pearce as Stannison and Rafe Spall as Milburn, with Logan Marshall-Green and Patrick Wilson in as-yet-unspecified roles.
