An international trailer for Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus arrived today, and at first I decided not to post it because there isn’t a single frame of new footage in it, as far as I can tell.
In fact, there’s less here, because this version of the trailer features no text to obscure the images. But watching it again in HD I realized that might be a good thing for some viewers — this is the same great trailer, same footage, same edit, same audio, but without the title slowly appearing on the screen, and with no tagline-filled cards between the edits.
Damon Lindelof and Jon Spaihts wrote Prometheus; it stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall, Logan Marshall-Green, Guy Pearce, and Patrick Wilson. The film will hit theaters June 8, 2012.
Ridley Scott, director of “Alien” and “Blade Runner,” returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
