Movie Trailer of the Day: As promised, Ridley Scott and Damon Lindelof today unveiled the first full trailer for the highly anticipated “Alien prequel” Prometheus.
In the distant future, two superpowers control Earth and fight each other for all the solar system’s natural resources. When one side dispatches a team to a distant planet to terraform it for human colonization, the team discovers an indigenous race of bio-mechanoid killers.
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.
The duo also participated in a 30-minute Q&A; earlier, at WonderCon, a shorter IMAX trailer was unveiled, as well as a viral video featuring a Weyland Industries ad for their line of David androids.
