Prometheus has Landed


If Hollywood must continue to insist on making prequels, this is the way to do it.

I absolutely LOVE the way that trailer mimics the trailer for the original Alien from 1979:

I have watched Alien countless times and still find myself dazzled and mystified by all of it’s weird and bizarre iconography.  Seeing that imagery brought to life in this trailer (The space jockey!  Hyper-sleep pods!  The derelict ship from LB-427! Alien eggs!) is making me more giddily happy than I can put into words.  It’s amazing to see Sir Ridley Scott returning, at long long last, to sci-fi.  That he’s ALSO returning to the Alien universe (despite all of the now-ridiculous denials of Prometheus’ being an Alien prequel) is just icing on the cake.

You all saw the xenomorph in there, right??

Oh my lord I cannot wait for June.
