Trailer: Michael Fassbender Seeks Aliens In Prometheus

Gird your loins Ridley Scott fans. The first official trailer for Prometheus, his kinda-sorta-but-not-really prequel to Alien has landed, and it is thrilling.

The trailer is all of a minute, but even in its brevity the grand, ominous sense of tension and epicness (sic) are almost enough to make a science-fiction fan soil themselves. The terrific cast includes Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Noomi Rapace and The Wire‘s Idris Elba, who will fill up the screen in high definition 3D once it hits cinemas in June 2012.
