The trailer for Ridley Scott’s PROMETHEUS broke last week. Here it is. It’s rather good.
Bleeding Cool have already exhaustedly dissected it in relation to ALIEN, of which it is clearly antecedent.
What the trailer confirms is that the connection goes further than the fact of the two films being situated in the same sprawling storyverse. Even with the poster released a couple of weeks ago (see below) it seemed evident that what’s being sold here is a reboot, albeit one with a poise and finesse that’s only possible when your director has been talking ‘transmedia’ since you were in facehuggies (note to self: might sell).
