2012 may be one of the most interesting years in some time when it comes to big budget blockbusters, but while Chris Nolan and comic book geeks may have issue with their darkest of knights not being mentioned, it may in fact be Ridley Scott’s upcoming return to sci-fi that appears to be this year’s strongest cash cow.
A new UK trailer for PROMETHEUS has hit, and while it lacks that major push that the latest domestic trailer had, it’s just as brooding, just as dark, and maybe even more impressive.
The film has been in the works for a while now, and while Scott’s latest output has been lackluster at best, this appears to have very much changed that. The cast all look great, particularly Fassbender, who is set to have a career expanding turn here, and Theron looks great as what appears to be the closest thing to a lead that this film has. Obviously playing up its loose connections to the ALIEN franchise, this film could be just what sci-fi needs right now. A shot of dread and a shot of adrenaline right to the heart. I can’t wait.
