Exclusive: New Prometheus Trailer Description!

I recently got the chance to see a brand new trailer for Prometheus. The video is one minute long and it’s a mix between brand new scenes, scenes from the Comic-con footage and the recently leaked trailer. Below you can find a detailed description of the trailer, make sure to click the read more button:

  • The trailer starts with the 20th Century FOX logo. You hear a transmission. A woman (which I assume to be Rapace) is saying “…got to stop… was wrong.. so wrong…I’m so sorry…”. You can hear the last part very clearly.
  • The first scene shows a spaceship (similar to the one seen in the first leaked trailer) flying towards a planet on the background.
  • Next you see is the surface of a planet and some sort of facility. It kinda looks like a Lunar base to me.
  • Now they show this scene from the Comic-con footage.
  • You can see the film’s title forming in the background during most of the trailer. Pretty much like in the introductory scene of Alien.
  • Next is the Ampule room. They show it off from all different angles and finally a close up of the ampules. Suddenly you hear a high pitch scream. It’s not human. It sounds like if it was from a facehugger. Then there’s a lot of smoke from what seems to be acid corrosion. They show a guy in a spacesuit. He’s alone. Screaming and putting his hands over his helmet. It looks just like the Kane/derelict scene in Alien.

  • Now they show the same spaceship from earlier. Same shot as in the first leaked trailer. Flying towards what seems to be a different planet in the background.
  • The next 2 scenes are from the comic-con footage. 1, 2.
  • Now they show Vickers running across a hallway. Same scene as in the first leaked trailer.
  • Next seems to me someone in a spacesuit. Driving a futuristic vehicle in some desert like surface. Heading towards some structure or facility in the middle of nowhere at full speed.
  • An impressive shot of the Iceland waterfalls.
  • Next is this scene from the comic-con footage. They seem to be shooting at something or someone but they don’t show it.
  • Next you see is some grey-black serpent like creature. Jumping ala facehugger from some sort of grey-goo cavity. Now they show the whole scene. There’s two guys in their spacesuits. One lying on the ground (it seems to be the impregnated guy from earlier) and another one checking on him. The creature jumps from what seems to be the insides of the previous impregnated guy to the other one.
  • Now they show someone with a expression of pain. The guy is still in his spacesuit and someone appears to be holding him in their arms.
  • Now you can see a device or hologram of some sort. It looks like an atom or a planet. I’m not sure if it’s a planet or just some molecular structure tbh. The center of the hologram is a single sphere so it should be a planet system. Probably the coordinates to some other world.
  • Now this shot from comic-con.
  • Next is a spaceship being destroyed while in the air.
  • One guy in a spacesuit pouncing at someone else while holding something. It looks like it’s going to hurt.
  • Next is the space jockey room. Same as in the Comic-con footage. The center piece of the plate opens up and the space jockey chair rotates out of the ground.
  • Next scene shows off a very inflated belly. Like if the person was pregnant but there’s something bigger than a chestbuster moving inside. Seems to be Rapace’s.
  • Idris Elba yells while aboard of what seems to be the Prometheus.
  • The sandstorm + Rapace spacesuit scene. Same as in the first leaked trailer. Close up of Rapace. She gets hit by the storm and she falls down a pit. It’s the scene depicted in the official still released around comic-con.
  • Now you can clearly read Prometheus. The whole title has formed in the background. They show it for a few seconds.
  • Now a close up of Rapace’s face. She’s in pain. It seems to be the same scene as in the first leaked trailer. The one with the green lasers scanning her belly.
  • Now they show someone in a spacesuit looking at the derelict in the surface of a planet with clear skies.
  • The words: “They went looking
  • The derelict again. It’s vertical to the ground. It would be impossible to enter it from the same place as in Alien.
  • The words: “for earth’s beginning
  • Still on the same planet. The derelict (or something really big) seems to be falling down from above. The guy in the spacesuit is running away now. Trying not to get crushed.
  • The words:  “what they found
  • They now show two guys running away.
  • The words:  “could be its the end
  • They show the same guys again. Running away from what appears to be a huge Gigerish structure (it feels like it’s moving but it’s hard to tell). Perhaps the derelict in flight. There’s a lot of smoke. What appears to be debris on fire are falling from above. They keep running away from it.
  • The music reminded me a lot of the one from Inception (the ‘horns sounds’). But mixed with what appears to be the music from the original trailer for Alien. Same music during all the trailer.

    Would be cool but it also doesn't make a lot of sense. If the xenomorph has a pure form. What would be the use of facehuggers. It makes absolutely no sense at all. Why does it need to impregnate a host if there already is a pure xenomorph form.

    Or facehuggers should litterally squirt out a full embryo wich grows and adapts from its host. But again that wouldn't make sense because of the 2 sacks the facehugger has.

    But if this is the creature before the existence of the facehugger. That jumps out of eggs and forces himself inside a host through the throath and then adapts. That would be possible.

    Not sure what you're trying to say here. There are plenty of parasitical creatures in the animal kingdom and some of them require living host bodies in their first stage.

    If you're wondering why a creature would adapt to a host's genetic template, it's generally thought that the reasoning for this would make them particularly adaptable to hunting the dominant prey of whichever world they're put down on.

    Maybe if this is the creature before the existence of the facehugger. That this creature jumps out of eggs and forces himself inside a host through the throath and then adapts. That would be possible. And later on when a queen is born/adapted (however you wanna call it) she will breed the facehugger eggs.

    what exactly did carlos huante say? his work is very interesting, I remember looking at quite a lot of his work while at uni studying fine art.

    Dont know exactly what he said, a friend took the class online.
    He talked about Adam and Eve's "monster".

    Something like this maybe...
    http://img521.imageshack.us/img521/7622/prometheusk.jpg

    That's actually fairly plausible and it would fit in with what Ridley stated about having to go backwards, design wise, from what we saw in Alien.  So when the xeno "serpent" comes into contact with a creature with limbs, we get the xeno as we know it.  The head and tail are the constant aspects of it's design, regardless of host.  Pure conjecture of course but a fascinating theory to be sure.

    I had the same thought and yet Ridley made that comment regarding working backwards from the facehugger.  I guess when dealing with "gods" and the alteration of DNA, anything's potentially possible.

    Demigod!

    One hint. Go Youtube and search and watch all the "Ancient Aliens" episodes and you´ll have a good clue about the movie.

    Hmmmmmm, I wonder will we be seeing the Snake In The Garden metaphor.

    The basic idea in Von Daniken's theories is to take mythical and religious ideas and to apply them to future technology and physical ideas. To take out the holy and spirituality and look at things from a scientific angle. So I'm wondering if there will be multiple religious/mythical ideas brought to life in a physical way in Prometheus.

    Jackpot!

    If it's another blurry/No sound one i rather pass ^^

    Well, from the description; clearly there's sound but in essence I agree.  The previous trailer leak may as well have stayed "unleaked" as far as I'm concerned.  That shit managed to make AVP: Reqiuem look as brightly lit as the sun.  I've seen UFO conspiracy videos with better definition. 

    Still, not long till the official trailer hits now... ;D

    When Ridley was talking about his 2 ALien Prequel scripts he also talked about how he was doing underwater research.
    It would be pretty cool if there was a dive in this film at some point.
  10. T Dog
    Thanks.
    I obviously won't be able to resist the first trailer but I know that there will have to be a line.

    The Predators' campaign was ridiculous. From giving full bios of characters (which I didn't read) to showing multiple characters being killed in the trailers to showing some give scope shots. Then again Predators' was very very short on new ideas.

    Hi guys, here is more of a general question if you would?

    Is the trailer in the vein of modern trailers in that it is most likely highly spoilery and goes well into the third act of the movie? Rise of the Planet of the Apes goes deep into the third act and essentially spoils moments.

    Is it to be avoided?
  12. Xenomorphine
    Was the tone of the footage noticeably darker than the EW stills released?

    It's of extremely murky quality, unfortunately. You really can't make out much in the way of actual details. If a version of it is released, officially, it'll be of higher quality.

    Quote
    Also, was the music a carbon copy of the version used in the teaser trailer for Inception or was it slightly altered?  Also, do you think this trailer holds a candle to the original trailer for Alien?

    It's quite 'Inception'-like juxtopositioned against the spooky atmospheric sounds from the first film's advert - together, they eventually end up forming this rhythmic, "BAHHH! Vwoooooh... BAHHH! Vwoooooh... BAHHH! Vwoooooh... BAHHH! Vwoooooh... BAHHH! Vwoooooh..." It's strangely effective.

    I should also point out that there are some interesting little attempts at homeage in the audio style of it. When it starts off, you hear this weird 'tinkling of violin strings' sound, which you heard on the original film when the letters of the title came up. Then the music starts kicking in. And also, when you hear the female voice saying she was wrong, it's done in the style of a radio transmission (all while the Fox logo unfolds through distorted image static). That part reminded me a little of Ripley's radio transmission - except with far more urgency and panic.

    The way the title forms is also a direct copy of the original's.

    There's a shot in the sdcc leak that shows where thenavigational chair comes from can you tell me wich one?
    If you've seen one of the trailers (3 versions are in circulation for now) you should know what i mean.
    ;)

    It's about a second long. Difficult to see anything, aside from it rising.

    how was the cgi work so far?  And was that hologram thing in the Prometheus or jockey ship?

    There's nothing you can really know for sure is CGI. The quality's too bad for that. It could just as easily been some sort of other alien weirdness as a hologram, to my mind.

    I wouldn't worry. I think it was actually the Derelict in flight, looks like it maybe debris from an explosion rather than shooting missles.

    That's my feeling. The guy's just running out of the path of debris. It looks like they're parts from the ship which suffers a detonation in the atmosphere (don't see it get hit - could have been an accident) as it impacts the ground.

    Don't know if the flying ship was the derelict - seemed different.

    Are any concerns about the space suits, etc.... abated after watching the trailer?

    You really can't tell. If watching it because you're wondering about that, you'll still be undecided. The parts in the derelict look very authentic.

    Did the trailer give the vibe the film would be a pg13 or R rating?  just your opinion would do thanks

    No way to tell what the certificate would be, but the mood it's going for is one of atmosphere and mystery, with a definite 'here be dragons' understone. There's an interesting shot of a woman from behind, pulling back from her standing in a part of her ship which seems like the Nostromo interiors in style and she simply drops to her knees. Not because of being attacked (unless it's a delayed poison). Got the impression that it's out of despair and a 'be careful what you wish for' moral.

    The actual messages aren't narrated. They come up as words on screen. It's sort of like a film advert version of the 'Alien 3' credits, in so far as you get these very different shots interspersed with one another, interrupted by the text, building up momentum.

    But that doesn't mean to say it's the direction of the film! It was probably edited together by completely different people.

    All we can say with any certainty is that it's aiming for a futuristic Lovecraftian style. Has a mature tone.

    It sounds awesome! I like how they seem to have used the music from the original Alien trailer. intrigued by the black/grey serpent. Can't wait to see the trailer, wish 20th century fox would release it to the public. would you say it looks like it's definitely a part of the franchise?

    Yes, feels very much so. But, again, the actual product might feel completely different. Jockey ship/facility is most certainly there, as is the famous chair. Also see flamethrowers used (but in a casual way, like they're being tested). The strangest thing is seeing it on the ground with the twin prongs pointing at the sky. It's literally forming a 'U'-shape on the ground.

    Anyway, I was wondering if you believe you saw any Space Jockey creatures in the trailer and also, do you think the serpent thing was a chestburster\stomachburster? You didn't see a facehugger or an egg, right? Thought you heard a facehugger?

    There was absolutely no way to know! Believe me, I tried!

    I disagree about hearing a facehugger sound. It seemed more like sudden violin music.

    Something definitely goes on somebody's face, but the shot cuts immediately to something else. For all you can make out, it might end up being a red herring during the actual film. All you see is basically hands reaching up very quickly to face.

    There could be a tail, but it's extremely hard to tell - it could also have been a large splash of liquid.

    It's more fair to say that you get to see instances of sporadic movement than anything which definitely resembles a living creature. If there are any, they hide them well.

    There is something which looks facehugger/chesburster-sized, which appears to leap up into the ceiling, but... It looks like something different. Different, but alive.

    Someone's abdomen definitely inflates very fast. No way to tell if it's the product of something quickly growing or suddenly moving down from the chest cavity. Could always be part of a dream sequence.

    No other creatures that I noticed. And I don't think so. Just the chair rotating out of the ground. It seemed like none was sitting on it.

    It seems like there wasn't much creature work seen in this trailer but from what was shown, specifically with this "serpent" creature, did any of it look like it fit in with Giger's creations?

    You just see this longish/serpent like thing jumping at the guy real fast. You can't appreciate the design really. Maybe in the HQ version.

    They probably will have it play, before Sherlock Holmes, since Noomi is in the film.

    Oooh, good call!  That would seem to be around the right time (16th of December) and as you say, there's a relevant link via Noomi Rapace.  Good thinking, maybe you should be crowned the Sherlock Holmes of trailer release dates!  ;D

    Nice try.
    Fake.
    But nice try.
    Legitimate source. Whether or not it ends up being the officially released thing is another matter.
    Also, please avoid those kind of comments being directed at staff. We don't let news get posted without first vetting it.

    Joking right?
    This was just my way of making fun of everyone who diss directly when they read or see something.
    From the moment i read about the way the chair appeared i knew it was real ;)
    Staff? I did not take notice it was from staff.

    Nice try.
    Back tracking and covering your ass.
    But nice try.

    Next time ill put a smiley.

     ;D
