If it's crap ... We'll tell you
The moment we've all (well, maybe not all) been waiting for is finally here. The first trailer for Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus' has finally landed. Apparently there is still a good deal of controversy over whether or not 'Prometheus' is an 'Alien' prequel. I thought it was pretty clear that it was, but it seems conflicting statements had been released from Scott and writer Damon Lindelof as to the film's relationship with the 1979 classic. As you watch this recently-released trailer, I think it's fairly obvious that this IS an 'Alien' prequel. Or, if it's not, it sure is cribbing heavily from it; what with the slow reveal of the title logo and the appearance of the Space Jockey in the background of one of the shots. But, as LeVar Burton was once so fond of saying, you don't have to take my word for it. Take a look at the trailer below and tell us what you think.
'Prometheus' is set for a June 8, 2012 release.
