Oh “Prometheus,” you’re so close, yet so far away! After the debut of the enigmatically beautiful new trailer that made its way online over the weekend, our excitement couldn’t be more fevered. Fox is looking to capitalize on the newfound buzz for director Ridley Scott’s “Alien” prequel/spinoff/whatever by kicking off its marketing blitz in a grand fashion, well ahead of the film’s June 8th release date.

Christopher Nolan, the ball is in your court. In what's already been an atypically strong year for big commercial movies ("21 Jump Street," "The Cabin In The Woods," "The Hunger Games"), Ridley Scott's long-awaited return to sci-fi, "Prometheus," just made a very strong case for being, of everything, the big studio movie that we're counting the days for, with the full trailer debuting tonight, just after Scott unveiled it at WonderCon. And it blew our motherfucking socks off.

Of all the summer movies due this year, none, even "The Dark Knight Rises," carry the weight of expectations from cinephiles as "Prometheus." Given that it's the first science-fiction movie in thirty years from Ridley Scott, the man whose previous entries in the genre, "Alien" and "Blade Runner," stand at the very apex. And as a spiritual successor set in the same universe as the former, the stakes for geeks are even higher.

Previously set up as a teaming between two action staples in F. Gary Gray and Sam Worthington, the gestating adaptation of the comic book "The Last Days Of American Crime" is getting a makeover. Anthony Mandler is now taking on the project as his feature directorial debut, and it appears that former producer/star Worthington is no longer attached.

There's been some confusion as to whether or not Ridley Scott's hotly anticipated return to sci-fi, "Prometheus" (out June 8th, 2012, galaxy-wide), is a prequel or a reboot or somehow connected to his earlier, influential "Alien." Various cast and crew members have said conflicting things, and the absolute secrecy surrounding the project certainly hasn't helped to clear anything up (although when we spoke to Charlize Theron a few weeks ago, she did let a little something slip). In a recent interview with Filmophilia, Ridley Scott both downplays the film's connection to "Alien" before, in the same interview, backtracking and saying there's a concrete link. Sir Ridley is going loco!

For Brian De Palma fanatics, it's been an agonizingly long wait for another sexy, stylish spellbinder. His last feature was 2007 incendiary "Redacted," which was a noble failure, but a failure just the same. Honestly, we can only watch our Criterion "Blow Out" Blu-rays so many times. Thankfully, word comes down from Anne Thompson that his new movie, "Passion," a loose remake of the recent French thriller "Love Crime," has picked up a cast member and set a date for principle photography.

Now most of the awards contenders have been unveiled, the major secrets left in the 2011 movie advent calendar are a few big, loud blockbusters that'll hit around Christmas; films like "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol," "The Darkest Hour," and, um, "Alvin & The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked." Will they be sweet, sugar-y goodness, or the cinematic equivalent of Billy Bob Thornton drunkenly eating the whole thing late at night, and then remorsefully filling it with candy corn and taping it up again?

Few movies have sparked as much speculation, excitement, and unease (just think of the potential disappointment!) as Ridley Scott's upcoming "Prometheus," which promises to return the famed director to the "Alien" universe that shot him into the directorial stratosphere. What, exactly, "Prometheus" is remains something of a mystery, but these new images, set to appear in next week's Entertainment Weekly, sheds a little bit of light. At the very least, they just upped the intrigue factor, at least for us.
