This week a trailer has been released of Prometheus – the Ridley Scott Alien universe movie coming out this summer – which shows more than its fair share of terrifying elements thus far kept under heavy wraps by the company. The company I’m speaking of is not Weyland Industries, but it may as well be since the press materials released for the movie up until now have been a straight up graphic design fantasy straight from the minds of the future science industry which will be sending our heroes to a far away planet to explore our past.
What you’ll see in this spoiler-heavy trailer is not just some rumblings in the tummy of one of our main characters here in the upcoming blockbuster, but the insertion of an alien into the body of a character as well. Right in through the mouth. It is not recommended that you have a full stomach before you watch this film, as it will soon be empty if indeed you did – it will be a past-tense sort of situation. Remember here once again that this trailer may well spoil some of the surprise for you if you’re unaware of the content of the film, and if you want to be completely horrified in the movie while you’re at the theater, you should skip watching this trailer.
Next, have a peek at some more of the film’s viral marketing in a bit of text taken from a “training program” for the Weyland Industries Prometheus mission. You can also access this text via the Prometheus official website at https://www.weylandindustries.com/. Beware the artificial people, and check out the risks before you dive in.
