First Clip from Prometheus Released
Posted 05.14.12 by Chris
Just days after we got our hands on a new featurette for Ridley Scott's Prometheus, we now have the first clip for the highly anticipated sci-fi movie.
The short clip shows Idris Elba's Janek and his team landing the ship on an alien planet. We already know that the passengers aboard Prometheus are scientists and explorers seeking to discover the origins of pictograms (aka alien "invitations") that were discovered at the sites of ancient civilizations on Earth. With the movie's June 8 release date closing in, we should expect more Prometheus marketing material to be released.
The movie has already had a successful viral campaign that included two clever videos — a commercial for Michael Fassbenger's android character, David, and Guy Pearce's character, Peter Weyland, giving a TEDTalk in the year 2030. While the viral campaign created buzz for the movie among fanboys, Fox has the challenge of marketing an R-rated sci-fi movie that isn't directly a franchise sequel to a general movie audience.
The movie also stars Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Sean Harris, Rafe Spall, and Logan Marshall-Green.
