See a Few Seconds of New ‘Prometheus’ Footage

I can’t realistically complain about the increasing practice of releasing trailers for trailers in the exact same post in which we’re showing you a trailer for a trailer. Instead I’ll take this moment to note that Fox seems to be very aware of a high level of interest in Prometheus, and is prepared to exploit every aspect of it.

The full trailer for Ridley Scott‘s new film will be released on Saturday, March 17, during an event parallel to this year’s Anaheim incarnation of WonderCon. Fox says:

On Saturday, March 17th at 4 p.m. PST/ 7 p.m. EST, legendary director Ridley Scott will premiere the first full trailer for one of 2012’s most anticipated films, PROMETHEUS, at the AMC Downtown Disney in Anaheim, CA. This invite-only premiere will follow a 30 minutes Q&A session with the iconic director conducted by Prometheus writer/producer Damon Lindelof.

That even will be presented online via Livestream, but in the meantime you can see a bit of the new trailer below. Read More »

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 »

High-Res Images From Ridley Scott’s ‘Prometheus’

Just over a week ago we saw the first real batch of photos from Ridley Scott‘s Alien prequel, Prometheus. I’m anxiously awaiting the first real trailer for the film, having seen the Comic Con footage and a glimpse of the bad trailer bootleg that also surfaced last week. (It’s not worth watching, so don’t bother to seek out the bootleg if you haven’t already seen it — seriously, just wait for the real thing.) I don’t know if this film is going to be any good, but I think it is going to be a joy to look at, if nothing else.

To tide us over until the trailer hits, here are the same images that were released not long ago, but in very nice high-res quality. Now you can check out all the little details. From these few images the ‘Alien DNA’ that Ridley Scott mentioned when announcing the movie is so very apparent. And, as I’m sure others have remarked, doesn’t that giant head look more than a bit like original Alien conceptual artist and effects designer H.R. Giger? Alien DNA, indeed.

Damon Lindelof Teases a Few Secrets of ‘Prometheus’

Here’s the warning up front: if you prefer to learn some of the character and story points of Ridley Scott‘s sorta-Alien prequel Prometheus only through the eventual trailer and film release, beware of what follows. There aren’t big super-serious spoilers below, but there might be a tidbit or two you don’t want to know yet.

Damon Lindelof, brought on to the project by Ridley Scott and who ended up rewriting the Alien prequel script that Jon Spaihts had penned, is well versed in keeping secrets. But in a recent chat he gives up a few details about Prometheus that add to the recently-released synopsis and might answer a few questions you’ve had about the movie. Read More »

Though Fantastic Fest still has three days left packed with movies, the best of the best have been revealed. Monday night, the awards for the best films, actors, writers and directors of the festival were announced in several different categories. Some of the winners are films I’ve already reviewed and loved. The Audience Award went to A Boy and His Samurai by Yoshihiro Nakamura, the AMD Dell Next Wave Spotlight Competition winner was Bullhead directed by Michael R. Roskam (review coming soon) and You’re Next by Adam Wingard swept nearly all the horror awards. Read all the winners after the jump. Read More »

Details about Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus have been kept under such tight wraps that after years of reporting on the project, we still don’t have a whole lot of specifics on what it’s actually about. Even the official synopsis posted by Fox a few months back gave away next to nothing in terms of plot; it confirmed only that the film would be a “science fiction epic” about a group of characters taking some kind of journey to an unspecified world.

So we’re very intrigued to see that a new synopsis has been unveiled, which gives away just a little bit more about the storyline and may confirm an earlier rumor. Read more after the jump.

It’s good to have a little actual news to report about Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus after a week of rumors about whether or not we’ll see certain elements from Alien showing up in the film. The latest word is that three cast members have been added to work alongside Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender: Idris Elba, Sean Harris and Kate Dickie are all onboard. Read More »
