Prometheus hasn’t landed yet, but a new three-minute trailer has. It shows a ton of new footage (which may be on the spoilery side) and emphasizes Charlize Theron’s character, Meredith Vickers. Vickers comes across like a female version of Stephen Lang’s Colonel in Avatar and clearly has a seedy agenda (which is blatantly called out in a spat of coarse dialogue). The trailer plays as a mini-movie of sorts, a condensed version of what we can expect when the full theatrical release hits theaters on June 8th. Get caught up on all of our previous coverage here, including images, featurettes, posters, what the film will be rated and the ongoing viral marketing campaign. Directed by Ridley Scott, Prometheus also stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green and Guy Pearce. Hit the jump to check out the awesome new trailer.
