The full trailer for Prometheus has just premiered online at AMC Theatres’ Youtube channel as promised. The video runs for 2 minutes and 32 seconds and includes a whole lot of new and spoilery footage.
You can watch the video below. Alternatively you can download it here in glorious HD.
Below you can also watch the Q&A with director Ridley Scott and Lindelof from the same promotional event in which they answer some questions regarding the film’s origins, Peter Weyland and more.
Additionally, there’s another Q&A at AICN in which the film’s rating is mentioned. “It will be what it is. At the end of the day, you’ve got to go for the best movie – and that comes from Tom Rothman basically. (…) You go for as stringent as possible. But at the end of the day, it’s a pretty good relationship with me and Tom.” Says Ridley. Read the full interview here.
“The trailer begins with a shot of waterfalls on an alien world, while Charlize Theron’s corporate character Meredith Vickers observes in voiceover: “A king has his reign. And then he dies. It’s inevitable.” The starship Prometheus lands on the planet as its crew emerges from Alien-style cryogenic sleep. The crew includes archaeologists who are there to examine a number of ancient alien civilizations discovered throughout the planet.”

Fox has released a new viral video via their official website www.weylandindustries.com. The video plays as an ad for a new line of Synthetics from Weyland Corp. and shows what appears to be Michael Fassbender as David 8. The tag line “Big things have small beginnings”, which some may remember from previous leaked material, can be heard on the video. You can download the viral here in HQ.
According to Collider.com: ” During the pic’s WonderCon panel earlier today, fans were given cards from Weyland Corp that directed them to a website and a phone number. If you call the number, an operator informs you that all Weyland Corp lines are busy, but calls your attention to a text message you’ve just received. The text message gives you a link that directs you to a truly spectacular video narrated by one of the film’s stars.“
