Video Games, Film
The eagerly anticipated full-length trailer for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus — y’know, the trailer that rated its own teaser — has at last arrived online, and it’s every bit as good as you imagined, laying out the film’s premise while still keeping that shroud of mystery that has thinking that June 8 can’t come soon enough.
In the distant future, two superpowers control Earth and fight each other for all the solar system’s natural resources. When one side dispatches a team to a distant planet to terraform it for human colonization, the team discovers an indigenous race of bio-mechanoid killers.
Ridley Scott, director of Alien and Blade Runner, returns to the genre he helped define. With Prometheus, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
Written by Damon Lindelof and Jon Spaihts, the highly anticipated sci-fi epic stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron,Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall, Logan Marshall-Green, Guy Pearce and Patrick Wilson.
