EXCLUSIVE: ‘Prometheus’ Spine Tingling Trailer [VIDEO]
A chilling childhood lullaby makes the hair on the back of your neck tingle and skin crawl in the new trailer for “Prometheus.”
Directed by king of sci-fi, Ridley Scott, this film is a prequel to 1979 classic science fiction horror masterpiece, “Alien.” He realized that there was something in his first science fiction film that “no one ever asked questions about.” He made the unanswered questions come to light as the centerpiece of the “Prometheus” plot.
But fans will not feel as though they are watching the same movie. He said that “the DNA” of “Alien” is in the film, but “everything else is original.”
Scott says that in the last few scenes of this 124 minute flick, “you’ll understand what we’re talking about.”
The film follows an archeologist couple and crew as they board vessel Prometheus to travel to the distant moon LV-223. They find a map of otherwise unconnected ancient cultures and interpret it as evidence of humanity’s forerunners. The mission is to answer the what created mankind, and instead, the group of explorers find a horrific secret that will threaten the future of humanity.
Actress Charlize Theron plays Meredith Vickers, a company executive for the Weyland space company funding the mission, and told SPACE.com,”I want to work with filmmakers who inspire me, and (Ridley) is one of those filmmakers. I like his films, I like what he does, and I feel so lucky to be at a place in my career that I can hold out to work with people like that.”
The star-studded cast Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, and Michael Fassbender lit up the red carpet at the film’s premiere in London June 1.
The context for “Prometheus” was originally conceived in early 2000s but became sidelined in 2003 when the “Alien vs. Predator” franchise came out. Scott brought on Jon Spaihts to write the script for the prequel in 2009, and brought on Damn Lindelhof to help rewrite and create a separate story based off of the “Alien” universe.
Fans have been waiting three years since the first script began and will get to experience the intensity in U.S. theaters June 8.
