While most of us were still waiting patiently over at the most popular spot on the web this week, Apple Trailers, it seems somehow the official trailer for Ridley Scott‘s Alien prequel, Prometheus has leaked early. Okay, so the trailer has leaked before, but that was in terrible, butt-vision quality. This video isn’t in HD but it sure looks great. Give it a watch below before it’s gone. I have no idea if they’ll pull these videos once the trailer officially goes live at Apple, but we’ll update if they do.
Whatcha think? Was it worth watching a bunch of countdown teasers videos? To be honest, I had to watch it twice because my eye kept being distracted by the slow formation of the Prometheus title. It was a neat effect, but distracting. Am I the only one who had this issue?
It defintely has a perfectly creepy vibe, though, and I love it. Alien is my favorite of that franchise because it’s more a horror story than an action one. Don’t get me wrong, I freakin’ love Sigourney Weaver kickin’ all that ass, but Alien is frightening as hell. And remember, in space no one can hear you scream.
I get much of that same vibe from Prometheus. And I’m stoked. If there’s one guy who can breathe new life into this franchise, it’s Ridley Scott.
[UPDATE: Guess what!? The trailer has now officially been released on Apple Trailers in glorious HD. Feast your eyeballs!]
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.
