Words escape this NerdBastard; something  just clicked inside my head. The fourth checker in my mental connect four just slid into place, game over. This trailer has just sparked a glimmer of hope deep in my brain. There are movies that even twenty years later are cinematically beautiful and remain timely.

Star Wars IV: A New Hope

Lawrence of Arabia

2001: A Space Odyssey

The Godfather

Kelley’s Heroes

Those movies are just a few off the top of my head that fit that category. After viewing this trailer my hopes are that Ridley Scott’s Prometheus might just break into that personal category of favorites. There’s a crispness to the trailer, that feeling of timelessness.

What do you think, does Prometheus have what it takes? What movies are in your list?

Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, starring, Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green, Charlize Theron, Ben Foster, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall, Patrick Wilson
