See ALL the official trailers for PROMETHEUS here



The internet has been abuzz for the last few hours as Fox finally officially released the trailer for Ridley Scott's upcoming (kinda Alien prequel) Prometheus. Right here, you can see the foreplay and the climax that we fans have had to sit through for the past few days.


Before releasing the beautiful and pristine HD trailer (which is infinitely more nerdgasm-inducing than the poor quality leak that showed up a few weeks ago), we were treated to little teasers, or trailers for the trailer, if you will. There was one each day leading up to today, each featuring Scott giving some soundbites that aren't exactly too informative and are a bit pompous in places, but do feature some great little tidbits of info and have that familiar Alien screech, so we know that yes, this is in fact a direct tie-in to the original Alien.


3 Days To Go...



2 Days To Go...



1 Day To Go...



And finally, today, we were given this beauty:



So, what can we gather? Well, this film should be amazing! Scott has tried to make sure people know this isn't a prequel, so we probably won't have the alien as we know it, and it almost goes without saying that there will be no connection to AvP. There is possibly a hi-tech version of the eggs in front of the massive stone face. The pilot chair from the first film (minus the fossilised space jockey) makes an appearance.


What we have here is possibly my most anticipated film of the year, with an epic trailer, a tantalising one sheet, and the best tagline yet...


They went looking for our beginning... What they found could be our end...
