New photos from Ridley Scott's highly anticipated Prometheus have surfaced, offering a closer look at what is set to be the sci-fi event of the summer.
A team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind 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.
You probably heard that the latest Prometheus trailer was released over the last two weeks, causing a lot of hype for fans of Ridley Scott’s return to the Alien franchise, but that wasn’t the only highly anticipated film to get a new promo video. This week we also look at the latest trailer for Snow White And The Huntsman, a number of first trailers for films including Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2, Cosmopolis, and House At The End Of The Street, and also a handful of films that have recently made their debuts at a number of film festivals over the past couple of months. You’re sure in for a treat.
This is traditionally a week in which the film world suffers a hangover of sorts from the sheer excesses of publicity that constitutes the Academy Awards and surrounding hoopla. No rest for the wicked though, with Ridley Scott the wicked individual in this case, as Prometheus kick started its viral marketing campaign with innovative flair.
As sci-fi aficionados strain their ears and scour the web for any tasty morsels of additional info on Ridley Scott's upcoming space thriller Prometheus, the more determined/fanatical amongst them have transcended the language barrier to gain more insight into the relatively secretive project. When the English director was interviewed on Hungarian television, the zealous fans were ready and willing to translate what was said.
In a mad, mad week just before Christmas last year, the world lost their collective shit over trailers for The Hobbit, The Dark Knight Rises and Prometheus. Fanboys obliterated the twittersphere with 'debate' about Bane's nonsensical mumblings, admiration for a dwarf chorus and a whole lot of second guessing about a Space Jockey mask.
But it was Ridley Scott's Alien prequel teaser that wiped the floor with that of the chiropteran man and the vertically challenged inhabitants of The Shire.
Thankfully (read: tediously and unnecessarily) the web was soon awash with frame by frame deconstructions of Ridley's teaser, effectively defeating the entire purpose of the deliberately ambiguous rapid fire trailer. Since then, every time a new Prometheus image surfaces online, the latest of which can be seen here, we are treated to more speculation about what it all means.
In a couple of days time the first trailer for Ridley Scott's highly anticipated return to sci-fi will be unleashed.
In the mean time, Scott has stoked up the anticipation for Prometheus with the release of an interview with Filmophilia.
With his constant teases of it having the DNA of the Alien films, without actually being an Alien film, the director has had the interweb all afroth. But now he's expanded on that somewhat.
The first poster for Ridley Scott's latest, Prometheus, has arrived and I can safely say that that is one giant head. Promotion for the film is starting to increase with the pictures that arrived last month so hopefully a trailer won't be far away.
Following their exclusive first look at the cast of Prometheus, including one damn impressive set, EW have a few simultaneously revealing and evasive interviews with the key players.
2012 is a big year for movie fans, we get the final Christopher Nolan Batman movie, the first ever superhero crossover with The Avengers, Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained and Peter Jackson's return to Middle-Earth with The Hobbit.
For me, however, the one title that has me most intrigued and excited is Ridley Scott's return to science fiction with his "Alien prequel", Prometheus.
