A new trailer for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus is now online. It displays additional footage; along with shining a light on the plot of the movie.
Oh, what’s that? You want to read the official premise as well?
In the distant future, two superpowers control Earth and fight each other for all the solar system’s natural resources. When one side dispatches a team to a distant planet to terraform it for human colonization, the team discovers an indigenous race of bio-mechanoid killers.
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.
The film is looking visually stunning. This is after all directed by the man behind Blade Runner and Alien. From the look of things, Scott hasn’t lost his touch with science fiction. In fact, he appears to have regained his love for sci-fi and has recently said at WonderCon that he wants to film another sci-fi movie as soon as possible. And why shouldn’t he? He clearly excels at the genre.
