The Prometheus trailer promises Alien greatness

Wow! Just had my socks knocked off by the official trailer for Prometheus, Ridley Scott's return to sci-fi and the Alien franchise (sorta).

We premiered the trailer's teaser a few days back. The result was a bit meh, but this . . . this delivers. Not only does it hint at the genre classic Scott created back in 1979, but it promises a big, sprawling sci-fi epic the likes of which we haven't seen in a long time. And love, love, LOVE the way the title is brought in. Again, nice nod to the Alien series.

The official word from 20th Century Fox? Pleasure your eye holes with this: Visionary filmmaker Ridley Scott returns to the genre he helped define, creating an original science fiction epic set in the most dangerous corners of the universe. The film takes a team of scientists and explorers on a thrilling journey that will test their physical and mental limits and strand them on a distant world, where they will discover the answers to our most profound questions and to life’s ultimate mystery.

I gotta see me this movie in a theatre when it lands on June 8. Until then, watch and enjoy Basmentites!!
