With just 2 weeks away from the movie’s release, Fox has put the promotional department for ‘Prometheus’ in high gear. It seems that in the last few weeks there has been a plethora of clips, featurettes, trailers and TV spots released almost to the point that they have become a source of spoilers. Well, these two new TV clips are no exception so if you don’t want to know and see any more about the movie, then head to another post.
(Don’t say I didn’t warn you!)
Of the two clips, the first called ‘Invitation’ pretty much has the same footage seen before but includes more glimpses of the alien and Space Jockey featured in the film. There’s also some new dialog from Captain Janek (Idris Elba) and something with tentacles going after Dr. Shaw (Noomi Rapace). We also find out that the “aliens” are being called “engineers.”
The second clip, however, called ‘Explain’ has much more new footage than the first and includes what looks like a corpse like creature.
Both spots have me chomping at the bit to see this movie which has received an “R” rating indicating this dark, suspenseful horror thriller may live up to the ‘Alien’ legacy. I just wish the marking department would stop cranking out the footage before we end up feeling like we’ve already seen the whole film!
‘Prometheus’ lands in theaters on June 8th.
