Prometheus trailer 2
“Big Things have small beginnings.”
That trailer kicked ass.
There is no doubt about it. This Prometheus movie is clearly a prequel to Alien. The “Space Jockey” is alive in this trailer. You actually see him getting stripped into the seat.
Also, This movie looks totally badass. While it isn’t a direct prequel, it clearly sets things up for the Alien franchise.
-We a shot of a space ship looming over a waterfall: I believe this is a flashback to the beginning of our race being genetically changed, because there is a shot of a “human” with shit going through his veins.
-There is a really cool shot of the deep sleep beds from the Alien franchise.
-Film school rejects points out one huge foreshadowing bit; Ridley Scott did say “Alien DNA” was in the film. Notice the sticky stuff? Hmm. From Wiki, ((Scott released a statement: "While Alien was indeed the jumping-off point for this project, out of the creative process evolved a new, grand mythology and universe in which this original story takes place. The keen fan will recognize strands of Alien's DNA, so to speak, but the ideas tackled in this film are unique, large and provocative."))
-Did the aliens leave bread crumbs for the human race to track them? The trailer gives you two answers.
-Are the evil Aliens mutations from the ones in this movie? I believe so.
-Now, we know that the Weyland Company was fully aware of the planet and someone from the company sent that message. And, The Company programmed Ash to protect the Alien. We now know why The Company knows about the Aliens and has tried to get a hold of them for nearly 200 plus years. Remember, they placed a colony on the same planet years later. (LV-426)
-Michael Fassbender is clearly an android. Look at his plastic skin tone and hair…his fake grin at the end of the trailer.
-Looking through the viral stuff connected to the upcoming movie, terraforming seems to be a huge element to the movie’s background. Keep in mind terraforming was also an element in Aliens.
-Idris Elba is in the movie too as the captain of the ship.
I can't wait for this movie now!
