Releasing teasers to build anticipation for new trailers has almost become commonplace, but today I’m not complaining. A trailer for the full trailer for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus has gone online, and I’m more than happy to soak up each and every new bit of footage I can get my hands on for the upcoming sci-fi pic. There’s only a few seconds of new footage, but it’s enough to appease fans until Scott himself debuts the new trailer on March 17th in Anaheim (it’ll be online immediately following the event). We previously reported that Scott will be hosting a trailer premiere event at Downtown Disney with screenwriter Damon Lindelof, followed by a Q&A. The two will be onhand earlier that day for the Prometheus panel at WonderCon, where I’m assuming they’ll also show off the new trailer. Until then, enjoy this new trailer for the new trailer.
Hit the jump to watch the tease. The film stars Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba and Guy Pearce. Prometheus opens in IMAX 3D on June 8th.
Thanks to /Film for the heads up on this teaser.
Here’s the official synopsis for Prometheus:
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.
