Wow. Really excited now.
Incredible. More excited than ever about this film. Does anyone else sense a Steve Jobs allusion here?
I’m not sure I completely understand the ongoing confusion (up until this video came out) about whether or not Prometheus is directly connected to the Alien universe/films. It obviously is. The Space Jockey, seen in the first trailer, is straight out of Alien. The derelict ship is straight out Alien. How is this movie not connected to Alien?
In March of 2011 word broke that Alcon Entertainment and Warner Brothers had teamed up to return to the world of Ridley Scott’s classic scifi Blade Runner. In following weeks Scott himself would sign on to direct the project – it is widely expected to be Scott’s next project after Prometheus, though he’s got a number in the works so scheduling could always change – but the official line has always been that Scott would be the only returning alumni, that the plan was a completely fresh reboot.
I hadn’t heard Scott was making a sequel, but it’s great to see that he’s moving from the Alien universe directly into another science fiction film. Whether the new Blade Runner will be worth our while is another question entirely, however. The bigger news today is that Harrison Ford is rumored to be talking about returning as Rick Deckard:
Twitch has learned that Harrison Ford has entered into early talks to join the new Blade Runner. While this is still very early stages and it is quite possible that things won’t work out the obvious implication is that what we are looking at is nota reboot but a direct sequel to the original.
Easily one of the most anticipated science fiction movies of all time. And this, the first trailer, looks incredible. Ridley Scott has said since the beginning that the movie would involve the “space jockey” race from Alien, and the teaser doesn’t disappoint: the horseshoe-shaped spacecraft is the vessel from the beginning of the 1979 Scott film.
One thing I absolutely love is that Scott kept the look and feel of the original film: the production design manages to retain the late ’70s future noir of Alien, but in a way that seems totally modern.
Inception horn aside, this looks pretty awesome, even watching it taped off of a computer screen with barely discernible picture and audio:
“Trailer starts with a clip of Ripley from Alien and the words “What if the beginning” and then we see the mouth of the Xenomorph “Wasnt the beginning” or something like that. Then theres this shot of like a giant waterfall on some planet I don’t know what the planet was and a ship traveling to it.
Then we see like two cloaked people talking to eachother near the waterfall or something and theres a voice over from who I’m guessing is Noomi Rapace and she says something like: “A woman once told me a story of how man was created” then we see this giant human like creature thing (which im guessing is the Space Jockey thing from Alien but I’m not sure) Voiceover: “First there was the sun” and we see this giant oval alien ship covering the sky. Voice over ” And the sun said I’m alone and I have noone to shinedown on so it created man” and another shot of the giant space jockey thing. and then theres like shots of the crew on the space ship traveling to that planet
You see like a quick shot of Noomi Rapace and and the rest of the crew and a bunch of stuff is happening they’re all in their space suits running around with theyre flame throwers and stuff and theres this epic shot of this giant space station thing that looks like droid control ship from Star Wars Episdoe 1 falling down through the sky and the words
FROM THE DIRECTOR OF ALIEN come up and more shots of the crew in the ship running from explosions and stuff. Theres a shot of a green laser scanner thing running through a woman’s belly some more stuff then theres a quick shot of something bursting out from the space jockey thing.
And the last shot of the trailer is a close up Michal Fassbender in his space suit looking down at a kid face to face and he holds up a finger and he says “Big things have small beginnings” then the title comes up PROMETHEUS 6.8.12
I marked out at Fassbender that was a cool line, great teaser trailer it should be hitting theatres within the next month or so maybe I can’t wait”
