Watch: Original 'Alien' Teaser Remade Like the 'Prometheus' Trailer
In space no one can hear you scream. We all know the tagline by heart. While the first official teaser trailer for Ridley Scott's long-awaited return to sci-fi, Prometheus, recalled the original Alien teaser with its lettering, one fan has gone so far as to make the truly perfect homage. YouTube user heresjohnny1991 (via AICN) has recreated the original 1979 Alien teaser trailer in the style of the Prometheus teaser, basically borrowing the music and using similar imagery and editing. And it's an absolutely awesome throwback that reminds us how this all began. This may not be a new trailer, but it is still unquestionably worth watching.
Watch the original Alien teaser remade in the style of the first Prometheus teaser, from YouTube:
A team of explorers find a clue to the origins of man on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe… There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
Prometheus is directed by legendary Oscar nominated filmmaker Ridley Scott, who started it all with Alien and Blade Runner, also directing Thelma & Louise, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, Kingdom of Heaven, American Gangster, Body of Lies and Robin Hood most recently. The screenplay was originally written by Jon Spaihts (The Darkest Hour), then updated by Damon Lindelof of "Lost" and Cowboys & Aliens, Star Trek 2. Fox has Prometheus scheduled to hit theaters on 5-25-79 — or rather, June 8, 2012, this summer.
