In case you missed this, check out Ridley Scott's "Alien"-inspired "Prometheus" whirlwind of a 58-second teaser trailer. Fox's teaser adds new material to shots from the first trailer, while retaining a shroud of mystery.

Without giving away plot details, the clip promos several grand action sequences.  The cast -- portraying a team of scientists exploring the dark side of the universe -- is a heady mix of talent: Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, and Patrick Wilson.

What we do know for sure is that Ridley Scott's goal for the movie is to "to scare the living shit out of you."

"Prometheus" premieres June 8, 2012, under the compelling tagline: "They went looking for our beginning. What they found could be our end."
