Prometheus Trailer Posted Online

Thefilmstage.com has just posted up what appears to be a cam recording of the Prometheus trailer currently being shown at movie theatres all over the world. The video lasts for one minute and basically shows a very similar and yet better quality version of the previously seen trailer, still not in full HD. An official, and perhaps different, high quality version of the trailer will be premièring on iTunes Movie Trailers this Thursday, December 22nd.

If you can’t wait until then, you can watch the video at their website by clicking the image below or here:

    If there are no xenos in Prometheus, I'm going to feel the same way I felt when there was no Newt or Hicks in Alien3.

    Ecstatic?

    Just watched the full res on my iPad....awesome...a couple of new shots. We've had these same images for a while so I'm a bit disappointed they didn't release something different, but oh we'll.

    Didn't you say of Rothman's response to the trailer leak "Why is it unfair?"

    Well, here's your answer. Without the leak your first exposure to all these images would have been HD and you'd have been all the more stoked by the revelations and scale. The leak undermined the impact somewhat, (although not too much in my opinion), and it led to a lot of flawed speculation because the low res picture maybe hinted at things that weren't there.

    For anyone with an iPhone/iPad, you can already view the trailer by searching "prometheus trailer" in iTunes and tapping the little television icon next to the "free" button.

    Someone has already uploaded screencaps of the trailer here.

    The guy has cleary some sort of deformation going on.
    He's clearly agressive, being hunted down and flamethrowed.
    He has no helmet (not even outside in front of the hangar in the behind the scene shot) where in every shot of the person burning him do have one.
    As for the guy who is getting his helmet burned, his skin is not just burning, his neck his morphing and changing color...

    Yeah it could be anything but in a movie that deals with bioengineering, with humans discovering vials with probably dna material, mutation do seem to be highly plausible.

    Again i dont think this is the main threat (well could be if such thing reaches Earth this is clearly our end) probably one of the many f**k ups that happens when the humans play god (they steal the fire of the gods, the urns, play and shit happens) and i'm sure that REAL creatures will appear.

    No slug or serpent in the final trailer.

    I think everyone got that, they were just looking for caps from the 15 second leak trailer because they missed it in the first place. I know I did.

    i think the explanation is pareidolia
    http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pareidolia

    peoples minds playing tricks on them or seeing what they wanted to see just like with the man jumping on the suited man.


    This will explain why Ridley Scott thinks the Space Jockey in ALIEN was a man in a suit then :D Good word by the way :)

    i think wer may now be getting the same phenomena with the alleged mutation that a lot of people are talking about, im not ruling mutation out of the movie as its plausible but im just not seeing it in the trailers or pictures like some people are!. i see a man burned on his face from the smoking helmet and another man that looks like hes been in an explosion or something!.

    thanks

    This!

    I honestly don't see any strong indications that the 'leaping man' is mutating or mid transformation at all. To me he looks somewhat injured if anything. Yet it seems that a large amount of people seem CONVINCED he is. I am not against the mutating idea at all but there is nothing concrete to my knowledge suggesting that that's what is happening in that scene or that mutating will actually feature in the movie.

    If Prometheus does well do you think it is possible for ALIEN to make it back to theaters? Maybe as a "Lucas" style special edition. It seems like some of the raw unused ideas from the original ALIEN script would fit in to what Prometheus is doing. Like a scene with Dallas finding broken urns. Also I would like a reedit of the Nostromo exploding the original has always seemed cheesy to me.

    Well i'm not against anything if Ridley is helming it.
    The work on the final cut is pretty good, subtle.
    And he DOES leave the possibility to have access to the original versions.
    So yeah why not.
    But i rather see him tackle a whole new movie than fine tune what's done.

    Dunno about you guys, but I just wish FOX would put the restored version of Alien3 back in theatres. I know it's still a bit of a mess and could be trimmed down, but I think plenty would still go see it if they did that.
    I saw the original version twice in the cinemas, so I would definitely pay to see the restored version.

    i saw both leaked trailers and couldn't see any serpent at all, ive asked for screen caps but nobody seems to be coming up with anything other than a blob which could be absolutely anything due to such poor quality.

    The guy standing at "S". Is that a human?
    So I was just thinking that the Engineer is basically this guy?

    http://artmight.com/albums/classic-h/H-R-Giger/hr-giger-facehugger-II.jpg

    Same guy as in the unused HR Giger life cycle mural from Alien.

    That pretty much fits , human with gigerian features...

    I doubt they will consider another AvP. The title alone will turn people away. If Prometheus does well, Fox will prob want Scott to do another. I wouldnt mind another AvP, set in space, with lots of Colonial Marines. Predators did it, and made money. So it could be done...

    Simply including a military aspect isn't any guarantee of quality. It has to be handled by a director who can make them plausible.

    Just look at 'Alien Resurrection' and 'Requiem'.

    Well these are not my favorite Cameron movies but the guy is still the master when it comes to direct.
    Whatever you think of AVATAR story or alien designs (the human gear design just plain rules in my taste), the action is beautifully shot.

    The only problem i see Cameron has is that to make his epic gazillion millions dollars movies he has tolet go some of his harder side. The AVATAR original treatment is more rough and violent,but he had to tame it to get the budget he wanted.
    He play the game, and still manages to give me goosepumps.
    I mean take the same story and give it to Bay or any other action director you would probably have a really big turd in the end... But you might think it's already that  ;D
  16. Tough little S.O.B.
    I reassure you it's not your age.
    It's mostly the result of bad design, too many pieces you can't make where a robot ends and the other begins when they fight, plus bad fast editing.
    It's sad because Bay do have some good composition skills, but he confuses intensity with speed.
    As for the scripts well it clear that Bay don't give a rat's ass about them he just want to blow shit up.
    I like watching Bay movies because of their epic proportions when it comes to action and because of some show off money shots.
    If i want something that is more carefully crafted as an action movie i'll go watch Cameron, Verhoeven, Mactiernan, etc...

    After Titanic and Avatar, I just wish cameron goes blind....

    Bay is the junk food of action cinema.
    But i prefer him to the hack duo, Favreau and Ratner.

    I'm not against it as long as it stays an alternate universe to Alien and Predators movies and that they decide to write a good script. The original comic book would have made a pretty good flick.

    i agree , the comic would be ace as a movie

    But if there is another AVP, I think Jockeys will be involved....

    Peter Briggs's script was highly rated...I wasn't so keen, but it was a damn sight better than Paul Anderson's disgrace and I try not to talk about the Strauss Brothers :s lol

    Michael Bay with Cameron producing maybe? It's more their kind of project (thinking merchandising). Justin Lin and Guillermo del Toro are worth a shout too. Personally, I think it might be some time before we see AVP again...there's more chance of a straight reboot of Alien if Prometheus goes down well.

    Who in hell wants another Michael bay movie????

    True, I certainly don't  - but I'm sure Fox would see AVP still as a kids toy franchise rather than a horror project. Replacing giant robots with alien hunters...there's money to be made if it's done right. Transformers, despite being terrible narrative, have made over a billion dollars between them. Bay makes than kinda shit, successful shit  :-\

    Maybe it's my age but I find really hard to understand what is happening in all those transformer movies....Plotwise are absurd, and actionwise It's impossible to discern who is who, who is beating what, what is where etc...give me headaches....

    Anyway, I hope there are no more Alien movies or more AVP movies...You are not going to do nothing better than Alien and ALiens. Prometheus well...its a diferent story.

    Cant wait for the "Aliens vs Predator vs Engineers vs mutants vs new xenos" that this money grabbing whore that is Fox will end up doing 10 years from now  ;D

    I think a new AVP will be done...Fox will smell money from Prometheus audience....

    Thanks mate.
    Here is another one made with the images from the last first look video ;)

    http://img840.imageshack.us/img840/2324/engineersizeroom.png
    Starmap/Pilot room.
    The size of the set has been made to fit regular human size for the shoot but on screen you can see that actual humans will be tiny. Clearly not as tall as Fassbender is in the middle of the plateform...
    So the human characters will be reduced in post to make the look Engineers huge.
    Easier that the other way around i guess.

    BTW the Engineer that is waiting for the chair to rise, is probably waiting on the steps on the left that leads to the plateform.
  27. Game_Over_Man
    I was wrong (so wrong ^^) the starmap room IS the room that houses the pilot chair.
    The starmap room console platform opens and the chair comesout of it.
    Whoever is the character on the right (original Engineer, reborn engineer or mutated human), he's not a regular sized human.
    Take for reference the human seen on the console of the starmap room in the hologram shot.

    That's a terrific observation mate - well done! Giant humanoids...yeah I can dig that  8)
  28. Engineer1
    I really do hope there won`t be human hybrids/mutants in this one.

    I think when all is said and done ALIEN will be a small piece of a bigger picture.

    Couldnt have put it better myself...thats actually quite spot on.

    My thoughts exactly. I bet when prometheus is succes FOX will try to expend this universe even further.

    Cant wait for the "Aliens vs Predator vs Engineers vs mutants vs new xenos" that this money grabbing whore that is Fox will end up doing 10 years from now  ;D

    Lol..nah..Then it would turn into a 100% Giger world...
    and become to abstract cause no human life form would be in it..
    And most people need to see human life forms in movies, so they can identify them self with them

    How more i think about Prometheus, the more i wish it never was been made... it gonna take my imagination away..I did build up in my mind how the SJ and Alien world did look the last 32 years....lol
    But I have to watch it... wanna see Scott's vison :)

    Maybe you should send some emails to Ridley and  ask him to use some of your ideas...;) who knows :)

    Add Predators in it :)

    Alien or no alien, it's clear from the footage so far that the film is focused around elements of horror. It's a science fiction horror mystery like the original Alien film. People are running in fear, screaming, and there are creepy aliens or mutants or whatever they turn out to be. It's like the original Alien formula complete with robots and sexy lead actresses, Giger designs, but with a bigger budget. All the best elements from the original just ramped up. It's a way to reboot the series. No complaints here, but ultimately its still the same formula as the original.

    My point is, Prometheus was being spun as if this was a totally different film that just happened to be set in the Alien universe, but this is no whimsical space adventure or some other type of film - it is the genre of the original Alien film and as in the original, most of the crew will be killed in some terrifying manner by some unusual life form.

    This is not a reboot for one and yes its based in the same universe...I feel this is more of a origins story.
