With all the buzz surrounding new trailers for The Avengers and The Amazing Spider-Man recently, I had almost forgotten about one of the most anticipated movies of the year: Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. An international teaser trailer for the sci-fi pic hit the web today, and it’s sufficiently fantastic. We don’t get a ton of new footage in this trailer that wasn’t in the domestic teaser, but the in-your-face horror aspect of the film is still extremely effective. In a sea full of bright and colorful big-budget fare, Prometheus promises to be a breath of fresh air (or, more likely, a smack in the face). I love the tone of terror running throughout all the footage, and Scott himself told us last year at Comic-Con that his goal was to “scare the shit” out of the audience. I sincerely doubt he’ll fall short.
Hit the jump to watch the international teaser. Hopefully a new trailer is on the way soon. The film stars Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, and Idris Elba. Prometheus opens in 3D on June 8th.
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.
