A trailer for Ridley Scott's Alien prequel Prometheus has leaked online. Unfortunately the video is of extremely low quality & without sound but it is still worth checking out while you can. The clip originated somewhere over at the IMDB forums where 'EverardoGuzman01' took part in a survey of some kind. Considering the rumblings back in October I imagine he was part of a test audience. To prove the authenticity of his story the individual posted a small clip online. The Clip titled 'WILD CARD' could also be part of an elaborate viral from Fox. Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Guy Pearce, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall, Logan Marshall-Green, Benedict Wong, Emun Elliott & Patrick Wilson all star. Hit the jump for the details.
Synopsis: "Visionary filmmaker Ridley Scott returns to the genre he helped define, creating an original science fiction epic set in the most dangerous corners of the universe. The film takes a team of scientists and explorers on a thrilling journey that will test their physical and mental limits and strand them on a distant world, where they will discover the answers to our most profound questions and to life’s ultimate mystery.
'EverardoGuzman01' also posted a description of the trailer he viewed & revealed the trailer arrives sometime in December. The embedded video & all links to it are being cleaned up by Fox but for the moment you can view the trailer here. We are told also that promotional material will spring up later this month & early december including a teaser of some kind & website.
EverardoGuzman01: "The trailer starts with a clip of Ripley from Alien and the words 'What if the beginning' and then we see the mouth of the Xenomorph 'Wasnt the beginning' or something like that. Then there's a shot of a giant waterfall on some planet, I don't know what the planet was, and a ship travelling to it. Then we see like two cloaked people talking to eachother near the waterfall or something, and there's a voiceover from who I'm guessing is Noomi Rapace. She says something like: 'A woman once told me a story of how man was created'. Then we see this giant human like creature thing (which im guessing is the Space Jockey thing from Alien but I'm not sure) Voiceover: 'First there was the sun' and we see this giant oval alien ship covering the sky. Voice over: 'And the sun said I'm alone and I have noone to shinedown on so it created man'. And another shot of the giant Space Jockey thing. Then there's shots of the crew on the space ship traveling to that planet. You see a quick shot of Noomi Rapace and and the rest of the crew and a bunch of stuff is happening they're all in their space suits running around with theyre flame throwers and stuff and theres this epic shot of this giant space station thing that looks like droid control ship from Star Wars Episode 1 falling down through the sky and the words:'FROM THE DIRECTOR OF ALIEN' come up and more shots of the crew in the ship running from explosions and stuff. Theres a shot of a green laser scanner thing running through a woman's belly some more stuff then theres a quick shot of something bursting out from the space jockey thing. And the last shot of the trailer is a close up of Michael Fassbender in his space suit looking down at a kid face to face and he holds up a finger and he says 'Big things have small beginnings' then the title comes up 'PROMETHEUS 6.8.12' "
