Trailer: Prometheus

See the first trailer for Ridley Scott's prequel to Alien


The trailer for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus has been released, giving curious film fans their first look at the Alien prequel.


Prometheus tells the story of a crew of space explorers who embark on a voyage in the late 21st century to a distant planet, where they encounter a form of alien technology that could spell doom for mankind.

The trailer sees the team of planet-hopping scientists, made up of Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba and Michael Fassbender, land the Prometheus on a grey, desolate planet, where they discover a gigantic temple-like building.

Inside, they find strange objects, obscure hieroglyphics and, most ominously, a giant humanoid face.

And from there everything hits the fan, with the trailer showing glimpses of infections, an alien vessel bound for Earth, double-crossing crew members and plenty of peril.

Prometheus is due to be released in cinemas on Friday 8 June. Are you looking forward to seeing it? Post a comment and let us know…
