The teaser trailer for Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus — his return to the narrative landscape of his 1979 film Alien — was one of the best teasers we’ve seen in a long time. We have no idea if the script, heavily revised by Damon Lindelof from John Spaihts‘ original draft, is any good, or if the picture will hold a candle to Alien. But damn, it looks beautiful.
Here’s something that will give you a slightly better idea of what’s going on in Prometheus, however. It isn’t a trailer, and it isn’t footage from the film. Rather, it is something that plays right into the rumor that surfaced yesterday about the character played by Guy Pearce. What we’ve got is a TED Talk… from 2023. Check it out below. Read More »

We’ve seen the poster, the set photos, the hi-res stills, and no fewer than three separate trailers for the trailer — and now, at long last, the first trailer for Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus has arrived. Starring Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, the sci-fi horror film serves as a kind of prequel to 1979′s Alien, though the filmmakers and cast have been careful to emphasize that it works as a standalone film as well.
And indeed, while fans of the series will undoubtedly be thrilled to see the nods to previous installments, there’s enough good stuff here to interest even those who haven’t thought about the franchise in fifteen years. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Fox is pushing this a little far at this point, but with the release of the third tease for the trailer for Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus, we at least get many glimpses of behind the scenes footage. The two teases we’ve seen so far got us ready for the trailer release, which is scheduled for tomorrow, but we’ll take the third, just because things are slowing down as we approach Christmas.
As a bonus, we’ve also got a new still image from the movie. If you’ve been hungry to see Michael Fassbender wielding a flashlight, this is the one for you. Read More »
Well, this is a trailer for a trailer, but it still has some of the first footage most of you will see from Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus. This is some of the same video that was shown in Hall H at Comic Con this summer, with Ridley Scott sitting on a set that looks like it came right out of Alien. (And he is still trying to say that this movie is only barely connected to Alien!) There isn’t much here, but I imagine it will be more than enough to get you excited about what we’ll see when Prometheus really makes its grand debut when the trailer drops this Thursday. Hit the jump for the preview.
Update: There is a second preview video that seems like it was meant to arrive tomorrow, but which has been found online early. Read More »

Every year during awards season, The Hollywood Reporter somehow organizes the schedules of basically every single actor, actress, writer and director of the year’s best films to sit down and discuss them. This, in itself, is pretty spectacular. What’s even better is they release the videos of the full conversations so we can watch. For the 2011 Actress’ Roundtable, they’ve brought together Glenn Close of Albert Nobbs, Charlize Theron of Young Adult, Carey Mulligan of Shame, Michelle Williams of My Week With Marilyn and Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer of The Help to discuss their own, and each others’, performances, all of which have a good shot at multiple award nominations. Check out the video after the jump. Read More »
