Avast! Trailer For Prometheus.

Here it is, your first official look at Ridley Scott’s much anticipated new movie Prometheus.

A director who pretty much changed modern sci-fi films with Alien returns to the genre which made him famous with a film which was originally intended to be a direct sequel to the 1979 cult classic. Not very much is known about Prometheus except that it stars the always watchable Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba and Guy Pierce and won’t precede any of the previously established characters or story lines from the Alien franchise.

The plot rattles along like so:

The film will focus on a mythology within the Alien universe. Set in the late-21st century, Prometheus will explore the advanced civilization of an extraterrestrial race responsible for the origins of modern humans on Earth, as well as the background of the Alien creature which made its first appearance in the 1979 film.

So, crew of future science geeks in discovery of large alien humanoids shocker. Count us in.
