Ridley Scott’s Highly Anticipated ‘Prometheus’ Trailer Is Up — and Terrifying
Published: December 22, 2011 @ 10:08 am

The first trailer for “Prometheus” is out — and it’s terrifying.
The much-anticipated trailer — which was teased with three previews earlier this week — features people screaming, bodies flying, and spacecraft exploding. Of course, there are gooey alien creatures, too.
“I’m so sorry,” a voice gasps at the beginning of the trailer.
At the end, the following appears: “They went looking for our beginning. What they found could be our end.”
“Prometheus” marks a return to the sci-fi genre for Ridley Scott, who directed the first “Alien” 33 years ago. Originally intended as an “Alien” prequel, the film takes place 30 years before that landmark film but stands on its own, featuring a completely different cast of characters and storyline.

Starring Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Patrick Wilson, Idris Elba and Guy Pearce, it revolves around a team of space explorers investigating an alien species responsible for the origin of mankind.
The movie’s tagline is “The search for our beginning could lead to our end.”
The “Prometheus” trailer was the third in a trio of much-anticipated trailers released this week. The second “The Dark Knight Rises” trailer came out Monday, followed by the first trailer for “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” on Tuesday.
The wait for the trailer was as excruciating as an alien bursting through John Hurt’s chest. In the buildup to its release, Scott released three 30-second teasers — on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. In each, Scott talks about returning “to the genre he redefined” as glimpses of “Prometheus” — and the making of the movie — are shown.
In one of the clips, he says “Prometheus” will be “all about everything. I come from the All About Everything School.”
“Some good thinking, some great narrative, good dialogue and therefore, terrific actors,” Scott says.
“Prometheus” was written by Damon Lindelof, co-creator and executive producer of “Lost,” and Jon Spaihts (“The Darkest Hour”). From Scott Free (owned by Scott and his brother, director Tony Scott) and Brandywine Productions, it is distributed by 20th Century Fox.
Here are the three teasers that led up to the official trailer:December 22, 2011 at 12:31 pm #47246

I saw ALIEN in the balcony of one of those old hangar-sized Times Square theatres, with my then-boyfriend, a Puerto Rican porn star. We almost didn’t make it to the movie — we stopped before the show to smoke a joint and the cops almost hauled us off to jail! Ah, to be young, gay and carefree!
ALIEN remains to this day one of my all-time favorite movies.December 22, 2011 at 12:40 pm #47247
I’m excited. Between this, DKR and The Hobbit trailer, seems like I’m getting my geek on this week lolDecember 22, 2011 at 11:02 pm #47248
I am so ready for this film.Riley (the normal one, not the one who won the predictions contest)ParticipantDecember 23, 2011 at 4:33 am #47249
Come on, Damon Lindelof, I hope that this is a good one.December 23, 2011 at 7:49 am #47250
Charlize apparently plays a villain, not the heroineDecember 31, 2011 at 11:03 am #47251
Do you guys think this will be like Alien which was more sy-fy or Aliens which was more action?????????????????
And btw, Charlize look so hot in the trailer I can just….. lol
I wonder how come I am hearing more about Charlize then Rapace.December 31, 2011 at 11:24 am #47252
Well, there are some very athletic actors in the cast. I just hope Scott stays true to his own vision, and that of the original writers. Hes not trying to readapt Philip K Dick again, for which I feel he did a great job at doing.
