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?
