prometheus trailer preview Prometheus Full Trailer Preview: More Ominous Sci Fi Imagery [Updated]

[UPDATE: Check out the newly-released, full-length Prometheus trailer.]

Yes folks, it’s time for another Prometheus trailer… preview.

Much like Fox cranked up fan anticipation by unveiling short promo clips in the days leading up to the unveiling of an official Prometheus teaser trailer, the studio has now released a preview for the full-length Prometheus theatrical… uh, preview. That second trailer will premiere this Saturday (March 17th) at Downtown Disney in Anaheim, with Prometheus director Ridley Scott and co-screenwriter Damon Lindelof present for a Q&A session following the event.

This new Prometheus trailer preview features a few new snippets of footage which continue to tease the maybe-sorta-Alien prequel’s dark atmosphere and disturbing plot twists. It doesn’t provide much more than brief shots of the film’s majestical foreboding visuals and closeups of cast members like Noomi Rapace (the Swedish Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and Idris Elba (Thor), looking panicked about the calamitous events unfolding before their very eyes – but, hey, we’ll take what we can get, right?

Check out the Prometheus full trailer preview below:

Thanks to an ingenious Prometheus promotional viral video featuring Guy Pearce as corporate head Peter Weyland – and Scott’s previous comments about the philosophical concepts and grand notions that inform the film’s narrative – most moviegoers are excited to learn more about what Prometheus will serve up in terms of plot, to go along with the impressive 3D imagery and creepy mood that’s resonated throughout early footage.

Of course, the really big questions that everyone wants some answers to are: How exactly does Prometheus connect to the events in Alien? And can Scott’s new venture into the realm of sci-fi and horror truly recapture the unnerving spirit of that 1979 classic, while also pushing the boundaries of its genre(s)?

We will know for certain when Prometheus hits theaters in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D around the U.S. on June 8th, 2012. Be sure to check back in throughout the week for (possibly) more trailer previews – along with the full thing, which is supposed to be released online this weekend.

  1. While The Dark Knight Rises and The Avengers are the films I’m the most excited to see this summer I think visually Prometheus may be the best, especially in IMAX 3D. Granted we haven’t seen much but from what we have seen so far it looks absolutely amazing.

  2. Yay a preview of a preview.

  3. Was it filmed in 3D or was it done in post? The answer to that will determine if I see it in 3D or not.

    • It was actually shot using 3D cameras.

      • Excellent. :D

        • Yep. Scott says he will never go back to standard.

  4. A preview of a preview inside a preview!!!! Movie marketing is getting as confusing as Inception!!! :P

    • for every preview of a preview you see for Prometheus, the actual release date will get further and further away, thus increasing anticipation for the film.

  5. I haven’t been this excited about a film in a long time.
    The makers must be pretty confident about the project to pull all this cocky “preview for the trailer” crap

  6. getting more excited for this the more i see of it!

  7. Wow, what a great preview, my idea is that Prometheus will not have the Aliens involed at all, maybe 8 minutes of connection with the first Alien movie like Ridley Scott mentioned.

    Still this is one of my anticaptied movies of the year.

    I wonder if Space Jockeys turn out to be humans or other extra-terristnals but if Space Jockeys turned out to humans then that’s one crap discovery.

  8. NOT impressed.

    • It got you here, didn’t it?

  9. This whole preview of a preview thing is starting to get silly. Lets just have the trailer and be done with it instead of being treated like donkeys following a carrot tied to its head.

    The future of cinema….preview of the preview of the trailer during the movie you just paid to see “and so the murderer is……..Go see the muppets this fall……”

  10. Definitely on my list of must-sees. But “most anticipated movie of the year?” Haven’t they also said that about The Hunger Games and The Dark Knight Rises?

    • and the avengers and the hobbit and the amazing spider man and…

  11. why is there no gallary for this on the gallaries tab?

  12. Heh heh, the tease marketing clearly has everyone who’s bothered to comment,( including me, of course,) on a hook. I like the comic book movies, don’t get me wrong, but “Alien” is already a true cinematic classic. This is my most anticipated movie of the year, because Scott had the sack to revisit one of his two most precious legacies…. and risk tarnishing it. He has a very tall order to fill with this movie.

  13. Definitely one to buy the DVD for!

    • Well, why not a teaser trailer before the full monty one? My girlfriends have always hugged me before a kiss…!

    • IF it’s any good. Don’t mean to doubt but… so it goes.

  14. I still dont buy Ridley Scott saying theres not gonna be some sort of connection to Alien…if so then whats the point? its like making a Prequel to Jurrassic Park with no Dinosaurs. My thinking is we will see the Aliens in one form or another…maybe not a full grown Alien…maybe not even a facehugger. But you cant make a prequel to Alien without showing the Alien…how the heck would you explain then how the eggs got in the ship??? or why they were placed there??? So yeah I call BS to that statement.

  15. With the viral video and the previous trailers I feel confident in the movie…they arent really showing us anything that we havent already seen either.

  16. At lease we didn’t have to reach 6 billion hits on Facebook to get the preview-preview. Yet.

  17. When I went to see Ghost Rider 2 in 3D, there was a way awesome trailer before that movie for Prometheus. It showed the ship from Alien and the space jockeys pilot chair coming out of the ground, or something.

  18. Did anyone see the big tall alien creature throwing the crew member? woah !

  19. I didn’t read that script that was released but judging by the trailer it looks like.

    They go to alien planet, and find and magical alien object. The object drives a few people nuts or takes them over. Then some stuff happens. They blow it up or burry it and just one or two of them manage to make it to the ship and escape.

    • wow…do one for the avengers

  20. Looks great can’t wait. Next bring on Predators sequel with female predators and some other interesting creatures, weapons , and twists, and bring back arnold swartzanegger?, and adrien brody.

  21. Iam going to go see that film no question about that!!!
