Prometheus International Trailer: This is How You Sell a Movie

On the one hand, the difference between the domestic and international trailers for Prometheus is staggering: The former sells atmosphere and legacy while the latter sells both of those and story (and Charlize Theron, I guess). On the other hand, they have the most important component in common: They sell the hell out of Ridley Scott's Alien throwback.

Can anyone wait? Me neither. This is how you do it, Hollywood.



  • Idk, my expectations have gone down slightly over the last few weeks. While I'd like it to be some brilliant sci-fi movie, I know it won't be. Not that it won't be good, I just have a feeling it'll be 2hr and 20 mins of bad exposition, CGI & explosions while evil Aliens kill off the crew one by one and then Noomi Rapace escapes, or she get's killed.

    Before anyone get's too carried away with anticipation, let's remember that it was written by the guys who gave us Cowboys and Aliens, The Darkest Hour and the upcoming Mummy reboot...

      Actually Damon Lindelof did some rewrite the script so that should quell your fear

    Looks badass indeed. Still don't trust Ridley Scott one bit.

  • Sassy says:

    Wait. Wait. Wait.

    The Mummy is coming back?!

    Or Red Planet.
