A new TV spot for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus has landed. The 30-second clip does a great job of selling the sci-fi pic to general audiences, as it touts Scott’s filmography and highlights the story, horror, and action. Us fanboys in the know are already head over heels for this thing, and I think this TV spot does a great job of hyping up anticipation for those unaware that a semi Alien prequel was on the way. The spot isn’t without merit for those in the know, as it does include a bit of new footage to tide us over for the time-being.
Hit the jump to watch the spot. The film stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Logan Marshall-Green and Idris Elba. Prometheus opens in 3D on June 8th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Prometheus:
Ridley Scott, director of “Alien” and “Blade Runner,” returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
