Prometheus Film Trailer

I have always enjoyed the Alien movie franchise (well, the first two anyway…), and I remember when Alien first came out in 1979. I was a little boy, and the movie trailer terrified me. There was the sound of a heartbeat, haunting music, and fast-clipped scenes interspersed with shots of an egg. Then at the end, there is a shot of deep space with the words: “In space, no one can hear you scream.” Chilling.

Then James Cameron made the sequel Aliens which was wonderful (unlike Avatar but don’t get me started on that silly film).

It went down hill from there, and the movies were mainly high-tech horror thrillers. Ah, but Ridley Scott is back at the helm with Prometheus which looks like it will be an excellent movie, judging from the trailer. We’ll just have to wait until the summer to find out…
