Official Full-Length Second Trailer for Ridley Scott's Prometheus
03.17.12 by BrentJS
If you are even remotely a fan of director Ridley Scott, the Alien franchise or sci-fi in general, then you're going to want to grab a snack, get comfortable and set aside the next twenty minutes or so to watch the new trailer for Prometheus...over and over and over again. The trailer, clocking in at over two minutes, has been hyped all week, with first a teaser of the trailer being released, and then a second, IMAX teaser, and finally with two trailer introduction videos, one by Michael Fassbender and the other by Charlize Theron (watch them below).
With 20th Century Fox making such a big push for the trailer's release, we half-expected to be somewhat let down by it. We were wrong. The new trailer not only contains tons of stunning new footage of alien landscapes, spaceships, and high-tech gadgetry, but it also reveals quite a bit about the plot of the movie, post-touchdown on the alien planet. Oh, and forget what Scott said last year about this movie not really being an Alien movie, because we get a pretty good glimpse at what can only be described as a classic black xenomorph and something similarly Giger-esque, but more...human in appearance.
Here's Fassbender's introduction video:
And, here's Theron's introduction video:
Okay, okay, enough with the introductions. Here's the new stunning new trailer:
Prometheus was written by Damon Lindelof (Cowboys and Aliens) from a script originally written by Jon Spaihts (The Darkest Hour). The cast includes Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall, Logan Marshall-Green and Patrick Wilson.
