Every once in awhile I find a movie I am super jazzed about. This time it’s Prometheus. Not only is it one of my favorite directors, Ridley Scott, but it’s full of actors I love and it looks awesome. Plus, there isn’t much said about it. I get that it’s about a group of people who go off to find some kind of civilization that has been hinted at all over Earth via old cultures. They arrive and obviously find that things are not as they seem based on the hieroglyphs found on Earth.

There is clearly some Alien mythology up in here. I obsessed over the lastest trailer for your pleasure (mostly mine) and here are some screen shots along with some commentary.

Those lines be movin' on him/it.

Okay...ever think they might want you to find them for bad reasons? Or that whoever made this is warning you? No? Alrighty then.

That looks like a LOT of facehugger pods!

Fassbender seems concerned at what he's seeing down there.

So does he...

So does her...

Is he wincing? Smiling? Crying? And what is wiggling around?

Gooey, glowing slime on your fingers is always good news.

The fuck is that?

That's a motherf'in alien, bitch!

I want whatever program made this.

She looks a bit upset about something...

At some point Fassbender had that green thing (previously blue) in his hands. Now the Space Jockey has it...hmmm...

What's goin' on here?

Who, or what, is getting the firing squad?

What's here? Looks like Noomi. Looks sort-of like a facehugger. It's coming out of the persons midsection and blood/something is getting sprayed everywhere.

Watch the preceding frames and watch the lines grow on his face.

Now she looks injured...

SPACE JOCKEY! We know what happens to one of him via Alien.

The previous shots show the guy in front yelling and shooting and Fassbender reaching out to the guy on the rear left. My guess, he gets gut-busted.

My thought exactly.

They never show who this person is as it attacks these people. It's too small to be the jockey, so my guess is it is whoever jumps off the vehicle onto the other guy.

I love this trailer and really dig the sound design. It’ll be a happy birthday to me come June!
