Watch: New 'Prometheus' Featurette Has Bits Of New Footage, Keeps Excitement Level High

The Playlist By Benjamin Wright | The Playlist April 26, 2012 at 10:17AM

We couldn’t be more excited about the June release of director Ridley Scott’s sci-fi opus “Prometheus.” After a couple years now of speculating how/if it will fit into the “Alien” canon and a series of near spoilers, we don’t have much longer to wait until we discover the answers to all our questions. This kind of anticipation is something the marketing folks over at 20th Century Fox must be well aware of, as they continue to fan the flames with scraps of enticing promotional material all over the place, making cinephiles and film blogs alike scavengers of the web, much akin to the space jockeys that scrounge up trash all over the galaxy in the “Alien” universe.

We couldn’t be more excited about the June release of director Ridley Scott’s sci-fi opus “Prometheus.” After a couple years now of speculating how/if it will fit into the “Alien” canon and a series of near spoilers, we don’t have much longer to wait until we discover the answers to all our questions. This kind of anticipation is something the marketing folks over at 20th Century Fox must be well aware of, as they continue to fan the flames with scraps of enticing promotional material all over the place, making cinephiles and film blogs alike scavengers of the web, much akin to the space jockeys that scrounge up trash all over the galaxy in the “Alien” universe.

Well, a new featurette has made its way online, and there’s more to see by way of awe-inspiring moments as the featurette opens with the text “A Film Thirty Years in the Making.” There’s some impressive B-roll footage of Scott in his element, scouting locations and directing some intense-looking scenes for the big-budget picture. It sort of turns into a Ridley Scott lovefest by the climax, with stars like Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron and Logan Marshall-Green giving him high-praise, with Theron calling him her “fantasy director.” Though don’t worry, there’s a series of sizzling money shots too, with what looks to be a giant action set-piece amid some sort of extraterrestrial dust storm as well as a few ships colliding, with the real treat being able to see inside of what many believe is the den of the “Alien” creatures. We’ll have to wait and see how this all looks in context, but again, Fox certainly isn’t looking to slow our heart rate down in regards to this feature anytime soon.

“Prometheus” starts its theatrical rollout in many European countries on May 30th, while its U.K. release is set for June 1st with the U.S. getting the movie on June 8th. We’re waiting with bated, xenomorph-loving breath. Check out the video below along with images (via Kinopoisk) from the world of "Prometheus."
