Awesomesauce | Fan Creates ‘Prometheus’ Trailer with Paper

The early reviews have already begun rolling in, and it appears that Prometheus is a movie sci-fi fans should totally check out.

I had already planned on seeing it whether it got good reviews or not (but come on, it’s Ridley Scott, so I doubt it would be bad.) The film is on my list of must-see summer films, and I’m anxious to see it tomorrow. I get the general idea of the film, but apparently there might be some twists, a lot of suspense, and those moments where you can’t help but jump and/or scream. And if you’ve seen the trailers for the film, then you’ve heard that creepy music and know that something must be lurking around the corner.

Speaking of the trailer for the film, have y’all seen the fan-made trailer made out of paper? Like remember when you were a kid and you perhaps played with paper dolls or knew the girl next door had a collection of paper dolls….well, it’s sort of like that. The trailer is made completely out of paper and it’s even getting recognition by the studio behind Prometheus, 20th Century Fox.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Chris Petrikin (vice president of corporate communications) was quite impressed with the fan-made trailer. He said, “This is further proof that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and that talent is everywhere.

Talent surely is everywhere and it’s apparent from this video that you can truly do anything you put your mind to, even it it’s taking an expensive Hollywood movie trailer and recreating it with paper. Awesomesauce.

Awesome New International Launch Trailer for ‘Prometheus’

I haven’t quite gotten around to blogging about it, but another movie I’m really excited about is Prometheus.

I’m a huge fan of Ridley Scott and his work on Alien, Blade Runner, Hannibal, and Gladiator. He’s honestly such a great director, and I was hoping that the next film he would direct would take us back to outer space, and Prometheus is all about outer space.

At first we didn’t know much about the film, which is due to the limited information being released. All we know was it was going to be a film about outer space, some type of spaceship, and I think…aliens? But now that the June 8th release date is a month away, we are starting to get a better sense of what to expect. A crew goes searching for “our beginning” and they end up running across some type of alien lifeforms, which could possible be “our ending.”

I could try to sit here and sum up what this film is going to be about, but the New York Times did an excellent write-up of what this film is truly going to be about. To find out more on this film, you should totally read the article. Click to read more.

So, Prometheus is surely a film that is going to take place in outer space, and from the looks of the trailer, it looks like some type of alien encounter. But, I’m not quite sure what the aliens will do or how serious the action scenes are going to be. Will it be as intense as Aliens? Ridley Scott still isn’t releasing a lot of information surrounding the overall plot and what we should truly expect, so I guess that leaves fans to keep speculating and breaking the trailers down frame by frame.

At least the new international launch trailer gives us an idea of how the story will build up. Check it out below. Thoughts?
