Prometheus Pre-Trailer Teaser Online
UPDATE: and here's another one

Prometheus Pre-Trailer Teaser Online

And part three has the Big Face and Ridley promising that Prometheus is "All about everything!"

...

Apparently we're getting one of these thirty-second Prometheus teasers every day until the full trailer lands, so here's part two. This one apears to show the crash of the derelict that we saw in Alien, and Ridley Scott uses the word "eviscerating". Cool!

...

The studios are thoroughly spoiling us with trailers for their 2012 big-hitters this week. Anyone would think it was Christmas! We're promised a full trailer for Prometheus on Thursday (which might mean Friday for the UK, what with the time difference) but in the meantime, here's a trailer for the trailer over at iTunes.

Some quick clips of Ridley Scott bigging up the project are interspersed with tantalising glimpses of... Actually, we won't even say. Go and have a look for yourselves. It doesn't take long.

To tide us over until the end of the week though, the Icelandic site Filmophilia has a new interview with Sir Ridders, in which he reveals he's been shooting "the beginning of time" in Iceland, and that original conceptual Alien artist HR Giger has been involved in Prometheus at some level: "I brought him in, showed him what we were doing, showed him the story and he liked it a lot. So he’s doing a little bit of work for me. He’s been doing some murals, big murals, which we’ll see in one of the first chambers we encounter when we land where we’re gonna go..."

Elsewhere [stop reading here if you don't want to learn too much] Scott discusses that "Alien DNA" he's been teasing since the project began. Reiterating a previous statement, he says that, "By the end of the third act, you start to realise there's a link to the first Alien, but none of the subsequent ones."

By which he appears to mean The Space Jockey: "Yeah, so there you have that. I was always amazed that nobody ever asked who the hell The Space Jockey was, and why he was there. I sat thinking about this for a while and thought, well, there’s a story! And the others missed it! So, here it is. I always figured that [the ship in the first Alien] was a carrier of weapons. Therefore, who is that, inside that suit? That wasn’t a skeleton, that was a suit. And if you open up the suit, what do you get inside it? And where were they going, and why were they going there?"

There are definitely, categorically no xenomorphs though. "The xenomorph did very well," laughs Ridley. "He survived; he’s now in Disneyland in Orlando, and no way am I going back there. How did he end up in Disneyland? I saw him in Disneyland, Jesus Christ!"

There's loads more at Filmophilia, including Ridley's personal theory of evolution. Prometheus, you won't need telling at this point, stars Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce and Idris Elba, and it's out in the UK next June. Check back later in the week for that full trailer...

Here's why...
"I was always amazed that nobody ever asked who the hell The Space Jockey was, and why he was there". Hmmm perhaps nobody cared who the space jockey was? I'm looking forward to how this links in with the alien movies but can't help think that, while I'm watching it, i'll be missing those shiny headed eyeless critters. More
