The International trailer for Prometheus by Ridley Scott is finally here! It reveals a great deal of this highly anticipated film. The trailer is nicely done: visually sensational, it leaves us craving for more!
A team of explorers leaves earth on a ship called Prometheus to look for the origins of mankind. “How far would you go to get your answers?” asks David (Michael Fassbender). And from what we see in the trailer, they’re meaning to go pretty far. The title explains it perfectly: curiosity will be mankind’s ruin just like it was for Prometheus himself. For stealing godly fire, Prometheus was doubly punished: Zeus sent Pandora and her box to carry out diseases among men and chained Prometheus to a rock, where he was condemned to have his liver eaten by an eagle for all eternity.
On the Prometheus vessel too, punishment is delivered: “Get it out of me!” screams Noomi Rapace, writhing in pain, as if something was indeed eating her insides. So be warned (and thrilled!), this looks terrifying. Not to mention the extraordinary cast that Sir Ridley Scott has assembled: Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba and Guy Pearce. It’s going to be hard to wait for another month!
Enjoy and Viddy Well!
Oh, and also, Damon Lindelof (the genius to whom we owe Lost) wrote the script…
