Prometheus: More Teasers, More Trailers, and More Intrigue


The heavily hyped Ridley Scott sci-fi epic Prometheus continues its path down the viral marketing road. First we saw a TED talk by fictional star Peter Weyland (Guy Pearce), hosted on the site Weyland Industries and covered here on The Airspace. Now we have a new ad from Weyland Industries promising artificial robotic life. This, of course, would go along with the twist of Ridley Scott’s Alien, wherein a supposed human is revealed to be an android. Alien takes place on a ship, Nostromo, owned by the Weyland-Yutani corporation.

Check out the distinctively Apple or Dyson-like ad below.


Just this Friday, an IMAX teaser trailer reached the web. Unfortunately, it doesn’t tell us much more than the previous trailer, just that the movie is surely to be action filled with glorious special effects.


Then yesterday, AMC uploaded the second trailer for Prometheus, this time revealing much more plot details and even a small synopsis:

“In the distant future, two superpowers control Earth and fight each other for all the solar system’s natural resources. When one side dispatches a team to a distant planet to terraform it for human colonization, the team discovers an indigenous race of bio-mechanoid killers.”


Prometheus will have its American release June 8th. It stars Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, and Noomi Rapace.
