It’s been quite a week for Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel/not prequel Prometheus. Not only did someone young chap leak a poor quality version of the trailer, but some new images have been revealed, along with the incredibly chilling music from the trailer and Fox CEO Tom Rothman has spoke out about the leaked trailer. A busy week indeed, and we still have to wait until 1st June 2012 to see the film!
There is no doubt in my mind that this sci-fi horror will be absolutely incredible and I am literally counting down the days! Here is what Fox CEO Rothman had to say about the film’s connection to Alien:
“I’ll tell you the great thing: It’s way bigger than that. The ideas are way bigger, way more original and — it’s a scary word — way more profound.“
Clearly upset at the trailer leak, and to be fair who can blame him, Rothman had this to say:
“I heard some of it leaked, which wasn’t so good,” he said. “That’s not fair. It’s heartbreakingly unfair, because … the quality of the visuals is as spectacularly beautiful, shot in 3-D compositionally the way only a master could do it,” Rothman added. “For some early, early, early, early half-baked, half-assed test to leak, it’s so unfair.“
The music from the trailer has arrived on Youtube and we have it here for you, and it is very very creepy indeed, so have a listen below.
Prometheus, directed by Ridley Scott, stars Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Patrick Wilson, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce, Logan Marshall-Green and Rafe Spall.
“Ridley Scott, director of ‘Alien’ and ‘Blade Runner,’ returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.“
