The Prometheus WonderCon trailer is a little slice of awesome

3 years agoby:

With the torrent of trailers and tv spots already released for PROMETHEUS, many of you may be feeling much like you do after a damn fine meal; satiated and full.  However, I hope you left room for dessert, because the PROMETHEUS trailer from WonderCon is a beautifully cut slice of pie.

What really stands out for this trailer is the editing, which is cut to the music and sound effects with precision.  If there's one thing I love about trailers it's when they are well-cut and this is a fine example.  Additionally, there are quite a few snippets of new footage, including a longer look at the space jockey and some sort of...something...slithering into someone's arm. Wicked.

Take a gander:

I could think of worse ways to spend a minute and thirteen seconds.  Thus far, this is my favorite trailer for the film, although that doesn't mean the rest of the marketing is coming up short.  Far from it.  Anticipation is building like boiling water on a stove for Ridley Scott's return to sci-fi and it further cements the prospects of a kick ass summer of movies.

PROMETHEUS lands on June 8, 2012.

Extra Tidbit: Ridley Scott is saying there will be more sequels to Prometheus "if we're lucky." Not sure what that means, but the way this thing is shaping up, I look forward to finding out. I'd still like to see what he does with a Blade Runner sequel, though...

My prediction

Based on the trailers: there's a classic xenomorph depicted quickly on the walls, so we know the aliens already exist in their original form in this film (even if they're not featured). I think the Space Jockeys are a humanoid race that infect their hosts and turn them into bio-mechanical beings. I think various crewmembers get infected but the android played by Fassbender (as you can kinda tell from the trailer) is the one who reacts differently to it, because he isn't technically human, and

I think various crewmembers get infected but the android played by Fassbender (as you can kinda tell from the trailer) is the one who reacts differently to it, because he isn't technically human, and he transforms into the large, humanoid figure we see glimpses of in the trailer. I think Noomi Rapace ends up being the only human left alive on the ship and attempts to stop him from letting the vessel depart, where it will crash on earth and unleash xenomorph creatures to kill the population and terraform the planet for the Space Jockeys. The Space Jockey we see a glimpse of in both the trailer and the original Alien film is the skeleton of the humanoid in the pilot seat; I think Rapace's character, as you can again tell from the trailer, manages to crash the Prometheus into the Derelict ship as it's about to take off, and Fassbender's humanoid dies in the cockpit. Left to rot until years later when Ripley and co. investigate and unknowingly pick up a facehugger.

All speculation, of course. Will be interesting to see whether any of my assumptions prove true when the film is released.

Nice summary, obviously as you say, speculation, but decent (and in some cases very possible) predictions all the same!

Same as the IMAX Trailer...

Nothing new here. I'm most interested in the picture where the girls is standing like she is stunned by something she sees and the guy next to her throws his papers and runs. Can anyone get me a bigger close up of that one? I have some theories in regards to that one.

This one was definitely my favorite of the trailers. The others were exciting too but i'm hoping they dont show too much too soon by the time the movie premieres. June 8th can't come any sooner...

Gosh, that dubstep(?) music is terrible but the trailer itself is amazing! I love that moment when the music slows down to almost nothing as Shaw looks around cautiously and then bam!

Another fantastic trailer. The color contrasts and overall clarity in this film are gorgeous. Weta has outdone themselves once again.

first screenshot...

...i mean, there's been a bunch of great theories i've read, and that first screenshot definitely seems like the suits segue into the endgame nicely...

oh and the trailers win everything. waiting for this film with bated breath. BATED.
