“Prometheus has landed.” Not to be a spoiler, but even though we have not yet completed and published our list of the most anticipated summer movies, there’s no way we’re leaving Ridley Scott’s Prometheus off the list. The prequel/non-prequel to the Alien franchise hasn’t shown us much yet in the way of footage, but what it has revealed has been utterly spectacular. This little early look at what we’re told will be another trailer debut tomorrow, found thanks to The Film Stage, is yet another road marker toward the film’s June 8th release. And yet again, Ridley Scott is hinting at a massive sci-fi epic that will challenge the best of what Summer 2012 has to offer.
See for yourself.
Watch the new trailer for Prometheus:
A team of explorers find a clue to the origins of man on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe… There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
Directed by Ridley Scott and starring Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce and Patrick Wilson, Prometheus hits theaters on June 8, 2012.
