Official Prometheus trailer. Master Scott's still got it, methinks.
Frame-by-frame breakdown of the Prometheus trailer (warning: spoilers ahoy!). I'll be avoiding anything to do with Prometheus from now on, I don't want anything spoiled. When I saw Alien, I knew absolutely nothing about it. When I saw Aliens, all I'd seen was a trailer on TV and a couple of magazine/newspaper features -- and the movie blew me away. These days, we get pre-production blog updates every minute for a year or more until the film is finished, and by the time we get to see the film we know everything there is to know about it. Where's the fun in that?

I guess all the previous glimpses and pre-pre-pre-trailers are a necessary evil. A sign of the times we live in, when we need the constant up-to-date 24-hour feedback, and nothing can be kept secret for long.
These days my sister and I were watching TV, and she changed the channel to the BBC (cable), where they were showing the darn royal wedding. Unbelievable how in this day and age, the wedding dress of the new princess became a secret of state! :)
Getting back to Prometheus, I might write something in the future about how this film seems to join the 2012 "Return of Quetzalcoatl" zeitgeist...
It's not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me...
It's all the rabbit SH*T you stumble over on your way down!!!

My sister is a food development manager. She was sent to a sort of presentation day where the guy who had made the wedding cake for the royal wedding gave a little presentation. Later he made them the main mix of the wedding cake. She said it was amazing. He made it in secret though - he isn't allowed to tell anyone the reciepe.
He did say he laughed a lot though as he'd seen so many TV programs and articles in magazines saying what the cake was and giving directions on how to make it and none of them were right.
Fortunately i'm not a big cake fan (its crisps and chocolate for me).
How ridiculous that attitude. So not only the dress, but the cake recipe was a job for the MI6, eh? ;)
Yeah, I'm not a cake fan either. The consequences of having been an obese child :-/
This looks like detectable eye-candy :3
And oh, in case people are innerested, someone has managed to upload the fine arty-horror-comedy movie ``Rubber`` to youtube :3
All that lives is holy, life delights in life.
i did the blasphemous thing that cannot be unseen once it is seen and read the alleged screenplay and now my imagination is greater than the movie...
Although I do believe the script that's been flying around is an old version.
But by now I myself feel I've deduced many of the plot elements of the movie. So now Scott has to surpass my own imagination. And that, dear Grailers, is no small feat ;)
oh, btw, did you ever get a chance to see that Russian alien invasion movie "the darkest hour"? What did you think of it?
No I haven't watched it. My buddy Robbie Graham at Silver Screen Saucers posted some really awful reviews of the movie --the viewers were rooting for the aliens! :(
I still think it was a cool premise, so I will rent it if I get to find it at my local Blockbuster.
