Out next Friday (June 8, 2012) is Ridley Scott's return to the Alien universe: Prometheus.
I didn't think much of Prometheus up until I watched the David 8 trailer.
The promotional work for Prometheus has been A+. Most of the time, movies will release a trailer with that voice guy and he would say some tacky crap like:
"After the height of space exploration... The crew of the Prometheus stumble onto something... Something that will change the fate of humanity."
Granted, I'm sure that trailer exists somewhere on Youtube, but the majority of the promotional work that I've seen, it's all been tied in with things that exist in real life. Like the trailer below, Peter Weyland giving a speech at a TED conference in 2023. I'm not good at explaining things, but you'll get it when you watch it.
Almost immediately after watching the David 8 trailer, I decided to watch Alien. I don't know what I've been doing up until I watched the first Alien. Just like Refused, it was way ahead of its time.
Mind you I didn't bother watching the other Alien movies because I hear they're kinda 'eh', but maybe one day I'll get around to it.
So once again, June 8, 2012, Prometheus hits theaters. You bests believe that I'm gonna go see it opening night. Hell, if there's a midnight showing, I'll probably go to that.
Here's a regular trailer:
