The full featured trailer for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus has finally arrived. It’s actually pretty revealing if you watch it closely. The ending bit has a ton of flashing video, so I’ve broken the video down to show you some of the key shots. (Hopefully they load for you while you watch the video.)
First, here is the full trailer in full:
Alright, now that you’re all ‘hot and bothered’, Let’s take a look at some things.
First off, let’s get to the big question, will there be Xenomorphs (Aliens) in Prometheus?
I’m thinking the answer to that question is no. Ridley has previously hinted that H.R. Giger’s beasts would not be making an appearance in this new film. So, while I do not believe we will see a full size Alien in Prometheus, I believe there is a possibility of the appearance of a “Facehugger” creature, which is the second step in the evolutionary process of the Xenomorph.
In the following portion of the trailer, we can see a struggling human (male or female, it’s difficult to tell). Above the head, there is with no doubt a flailing creature of some sort. To me, it looks more like a squid than anything else, but it is in prime ‘face hugging’ position. Do note that the creature is most definitely being suspended by a set of grips of some sort. Why? Only those directly associated with the film know for certain.
Here is an interesting clip. This is not the first time we’ve seen this figure quickly reaching for a smoking helmet. Now, the question is here would be this: Is that acid eating through is glass dome, or simply a bunch of smoke preventing him from properly breathing? Again, we don’t know. If it is acid, then it’s possible that Xenomorphs will, in fact, make an appearance. Or maybe that acid has somehow been harnessed by…
This little squatter seems to be a flight assistant of some sort as you’ll see in a later clip.
So who are these guys? It’s apparent that they are the protagonists of the film, but what roll do they play? Why are they interested in Earth and why are they raising such nasty little pets? SO. MANY. QUESTIONS.
Look, the squatter again! The above clip seems to be our grey-skinned friend activating the ‘Space Jockey’ station. He, however, is not the Space Jockey because….
Ok, maybe it’s the same guy with some pretty hardcore seat-belts. Either way, it’s about time we see this chap alive and breathing.
I’ll leave you with this…
Noomi Rapace looks just like Alien era Sigourney Weaver, am I right?
