Trailer for Ridley Scott's Prometheus

Post  Iago on Fri Dec 23, 2011 7:20 am

For all of Ridley Scott's protestations that Prometheus is not really a prequel to the Alien series, but just contains "Alien DNA," the shots of the Space Jockey and the Derelict in the trailer seem to make it clear that he doth protest too much!

Recognizing that it is just a teaser trailer, the whole concept seems stale and overdone. I wonder where the film is going to go.

Well, it looks like it may trend toward the metaphysical, which is infrequent in big-budget genre flicks. But time will tell.

Avatar and The Matrix went there (sort of), but I know what you mean.

As did Chronicles of Riddick! But the slim synopsis that has been given for Prometheus indicates that it may go to a higher level as did 2001.

So rather than a floating embryo in space, we see sperm and an egg?

Hardly. More the "elder gods" kind of stuff -- it seems like it may explicity make the lovecraftian connection that the Alien movies tease at with their visuals.

Ah. Ancient alien ruins. Sounds like the characters in this movie need a direct line to Riddick.

Very possibly. But I will give Ridley Scott the benefit of the doubt more quickly than I will give it to David Twohy (though I believe that I have mentioned that Riddick has grown on me a bit.)

As would I be more willing to give Scott the benefit of the doubt.

Scott has disappointed me enough lately that I am really hoping for this film to get him back into the game. The only film that he has directed in the last 10+ years that really impressed me was Kingdom of Heaven. The rest have not been bad, but they have been thoroughly mediocre. I would rather have him direct an ambitious failure than another competent mediocrity.

I forgot to take note. When does Prometheus hit theatres?

June. Not too long to wait to find out -- we will get it well before Skyfall -- though The Dark Knight Rises precedes both (I think.)

I think The Dark Knight Rises will be released July 20 up here, but you might get it a bit earlier.

Incidentally, I've made plans to see Ghost Protocol this coming weekend. I hope to catch the Dark Knight prologue.

I could be wrong about Rises. I had May in mind because that is the beginning of the summer movie season, but it could easily be July. Too lazy to look it up right now.


I re-watched Mission Impossible II this weekend. That is probably the most maligned entry in the series, but I rather like it. It may be shoe-horning the John Woo aesthetic into the Mission Impossible ethos, but the reality is that next to Face/Off, it may be Woo's most "authentically Woo-like" American movie. Thematically it fits right into his oeuvre without missing a beat.

I really enjoyed Mission Impossible II, though I'm still bothered by the bike chase scene where it is all too obvious that the bikes have had their street tires swapped out for mud tires. There is even a close-up to really rub it in.

Yes, that really stood out in high definition, but it seems a bit nitpicking to complain too much about how that impacts the film's verisimilitude. John Woo went for many things in that film, but realism was not one of them!



I was definitely wrong about Rises. It is indeed July 20.

It's not so much that it affects the realism of the film, as it obvious the film is a bit over-the-top from the get go. It's just always jumped out at me. Hey, we all have our issues!

Some of those kind of things I try not to notice. Once you do, they are impossible to ignore. Have I told you the story about how my father ruined the pre-credit sequence of OHMSS for me?

Well, I won't share it again then. By the way, the tire-switching in MI2 is not consistent; for instance, they left the street tires on the bike closest to the camera in the shot where they face off before the "joust," but the knobbies are clearly visible on the bike farther away from camera.
