Well, the studio’s certainly made you wait for it long enough, so here it is, the first official teaser trailer for Ridley Scott’s return to the genre he helped defined … or so Fox keeps telling me. So, is it everything you hoped it would be? Was all the mysterious set images and the mind-boggling question of “is it or isn’t it” an “Alien” prequel finally answered? Well, that probably depends entirely on your expectations, I suppose. I thought it would be an interesting sci-fi movie, but I never really bought into the hype that “Prometheus” would somehow re-define the genre — again. In any case, judge for yourself by viewing the trailer below.
The plot of “Prometheus” finds a team of scientists and explorers are on a thrilling journey that will test their physical and mental limits and strand them on a distant world, where they will discover the answers to our most profound questions and to life’s ultimate mystery. Yeah, not all that ambitious whatsoever, just that whole meaning of life stuff, heh.
The impressive cast includes Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce, Ben Foster, Logan Marshall-Green, Kate Dickie, and Sean Harris.
Launching June 8, 2012.
