Trailer Watch: Ridley Scott’s Prometheus

Yesterday, a trailer for Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel that doesn’t have the Aliens (a.k.a. Xenomorphs) in it hit the internet, and here it is. It’s a tease, to be sure, but the footage we see is pretty damned awesome. Consider my appetite whetted.

Interestingly, Charlize Theron is billed last here, not first, despite her prominence in the trailer. I’ll let others speculate as to why…

Prometheus was written by Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof and Jon Spaihts and stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green, and Charlize Theron — the YouTube page lists Ben Foster, as well — and it hits theaters on June 8, 2012.
