Prometheus Trailer Looks A Lot Like Alien

By: Zach Walton - March 18, 2012

Prometheus is one of those few movies that I plan on seeing day one. I love Ridley Scott and I love Alien. Good thing the new Prometheus trailer sets up the movie to be exactly like Alien.

Speaking of the trailer though, it has a few things worth looking out for. You should be able to notice a lot of architecture that was present in the first Alien movie. There’s a point near the middle where the team is inside of a room which seems to be full of small totems. It’s teased out that these are actually eggs.

We don’t actually get to really see the threat that is in this movie, but it doesn’t look like a Xenomorph. There are, however, a few things that look very Alien-ish. There’s a quick cutaway in the trailer that seems to show a man struggling with something on his face. Is it a facehugger or perhaps an early form of the species? We don’t know, but it’s obvious that Scott is going for an Alien vibe with this film and that’s totally fine by me.

Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think. Can you spot any other things in the trailer that remind you of Alien?

    This is either going to be awesome or an abomination.

      Granted, it can’t be as bad as Alien Vs. Predator.

        Hey, Aliens vs. Predator was awesome.. Oh wait, you mean the movies.

    At 1:38 there’s a shape that looks like an alien possibly hanging from a wall. Look at the hips, ribcage and head shape. Can’t wait to see this one.

      Your right. I paused it @1:38 and the more I looked at it, I realized it looks exactly like a xenomorph in the exact position it was in when it dropped down behind Brett in the original. eeeeeee I’m so excited! 😛

    I’m going to go ahead and say that this is an Alien prequel. Upon arriving on the Alien planet in the first movie, the crew discovered architecture of a species other than the Xenomorphs. One particular room was always key in those scenes, and that was where they were in a large wide open space with a huge being’s corpse laying in a chair with some sort of telescopic device lingering overhead . . . THAT device was just shown in this preview along with THAT being sitting in THAT exact chair. nuff said
