In a week that saw the release of 'The Dark Knight Rises' and 'The Hoobbit' trailers, today, sci-fi/horror fans get the first glimpse of Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus' trailer, which is being heavily rumored as a prequel to the 1979 'Alien' film.
When it was announced that Ridley Scott would be returning to the genre that made him famous, many fans and critics questioned whether or not he would be making another film in the 'Alien' franchise. Earlier today, the 'Prometheus' trailer hit the Internet, and word on the street is that this film may indeed be a prequel. When viewing the trailer, the is no doubt about the references to the original 'Alien' film. From the wardrobe, to set designs, even obscure references like the 'Space Jockey' life form and 'facehuggers' can be seen in the trailer. One thing is certain, if this is not a direct prequel, it sure does contain a lot of material from the original film.
The 'Prometheus' trailer is revealing but the cast and crew remain tight-lipped about the film. I guess we'll have to wait until the next trailer drops or until the film premieres in August to know if this is a prequel or just another brilliant sci-fi film from Scott.
