Are you a fan of mind-blowing science fiction movies directed by the legendary Ridley Scott? Then you’re in for a treat: The latest trailer has been released for Prometheus, billed as a prequel to his 1979 classic Alien.
Prometheus is being shot entirely in 3D. It’s set in the Alien universe, but it has its own separate storyline.
In the film, researchers discover that all humans may owe their creation to a single entity. A team of explorers is dispatched to learn more about the origins of humanity, only to discover a malevolent being with the power to destroy life everywhere.
The trailer features an almost Firefly-looking spaceship, explorers going mad and an Alien-esque tentacle and other not-quite-human lifeforms alongside other scenes meant to whet the appetites of science fiction geeks across the world.
Oh, and it’s all set to a modern take on the same anxiety-inducing music used in the trailer for the original Alien.
Does the new trailer tickle your cinema bone? Director Ridley Scott is certainly excited about the film — he’s already hinting at a sequel, according to Wired.
“If we’re lucky, maybe we’ll have a second part because at the end of Prometheus, it does leave some questions unanswered,” said Scott at WonderCon 2012.
As part of a viral marketing campaign, the film’s creators have opened ProjectPromethus.com, an alternate reality game.
Prometheus premieres on June 8.
