The first real trailer for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, dropped today, and it’s like a checklist of cool stuff: people yelling, people screaming, some space ships, explosions, and Charlize Theron in a towel. There are a bunch of ominous looking locales (never trust a giant head made out of stone), as well as the most foreboding tagline of all time: "They went looking for our beginning. What they found could be our end." Shivers!
By the way, it’s absolutely an Alien prequel. Scott and the producers have been coy about it, but there’s some tell-tale evidence sprinkled throughout the trailer. Some clues: There’s a split second shot of the famous "space jockey" chair from Alien at the :39 mark. The lettering on "Prometheus" slowly fades in line by line, just like the lettering did in Alien. So, mystery solved.
