Watch: More 'Prometheus' Footage Surfaces in Another New Featurette
After hearing many voices on the internet say that the most recent three-minute international trailer for Prometheus started to show too much, I decided to stay away from anymore footage from the forthcoming sci-fi return from director Ridley Scott. I just don't want to spoil anything for myself or ruin the experience of discovering the film's mysteries with the characters and the rest of the audience. But for those of you who just can't get enough of the new summer sci-fi flick, here's a new featurette. All I know is it focuses on story and has more interviews with cast and crew, so you'll have to see for yourself how cool it is.
The new featurette for Ridley Scott's Prometheus originally from Fox's New Zealand YouTube page:
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 set to hit theaters in 3D starting June 8th this summer. Visit Weyland Corp.

Just when I thought I couldn't get more hyped about this movie, they go and do something like this.

The worst thing you can possibly do is worrying and thinking about what you could have done.

I'd watched an Alien documentary the other night, I think it was maybe made in the late 90's, there was something Ridley Scott said about the make-up of the alien, how they were part humanoid, part machine, part alien. It was kindo funny that it was quite a few years ago, but the android definitely seems to be well up for destroying the crew with crazy alien experiments.

I have NOT watched neither the new trailer or will I watch this. I mean, way too overkill. The original trailer already, I thought, gave away too much. I miss the old days. 1980, my Dad opened up the daily newspaper. There was a HUGE ad for the Empire Strikes back. I was like 8 years old. I loved the original SW but knew NOTHING about Empire. And wow....I will never forget. What a ride it was. I know its unrealistic these days but the truth is, the less you know the better the final experience will be (in this genre of films).

Yeah, I was there too, in 1980. A newspaper ad, some magazine articles, and probably a novelization with a few pictures before the movie was released.

I have more faith in Nolan, actually. No matter how underwhelming the marketing for "TDKR" may seem to some of the naysayers. I have no doubt whatsoever that the film's story will be the real star. The technical mastery of the filmmakers is a given as well. The artistic confidence of team Nolan leaves some of us with a pleasant feeling of comfort. No trepidation, creeping doubts. Just calm anticipation. The brilliantly edited initial teaser for "Prometheus" leads you to believe the film will be borderline miraculous, a bold, uncompromising genre milestone. And then comes the flood of featurettes... And you're reminded that in all probability the final product may provide you with an easthetically pleasing, complete sci-fi environment and (hopefully) a decent story. Nothing more. And considering genre credentials of sir Ridley Scott, such outcome would amount to a disappointment. Still, a pleasant surprise will be very welcome.

I read all the movie magazines in 1979 like Famous Monsters, Cinefantastique, etc. Biomechanoids is exactly what H.R. Giger came up with. One concept was that the alien was also asexual - having the ability to produce an egg on it's own. It makes sense why it would choose to captured Dallas and Brett. I hope Ridley will go his own way and ignore the substanard, shitty franchise that's been made of what I consider HIS alien.
