Teased beyond the point of parody we now have the chance to see what Ridley Scott and screenwriter Damon Lindelof have been working on for what seems like an age. The highly anticipated film has gone from being a full on Space Jockey-centred prequel to Alien to a far grander sci-fi tale, telling us the story of a discovery of the origin of life in the universe.
The trailer hints at the links, not least the slowly revealing font, Gigeresque corridor and it looks like we’ll see what happened to the ship where it all started in Alien. Oh, and the flash at 00:26 is very interesting…
Ridley Scott has a very interesting cast in the form of Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green and Charlize Theron but it is the return of the director to the sci-fi genre that is the real draw here.
Here’s your trailer, which we hope to have in HD soon. The film is out in the UK on the 1st of June.
