Trailers Without Pity: <i>Prometheus</i>

Next to The Dark Knight Rises, no summer blockbuster has us more intrigued than Prometheus, Ridley Scott's belated return to the science fiction genre and the Alien franchise that rocketed his career into the stratosphere some three decades ago.

Co-written by Lost's Damon Lindelof and Jon Spaihts, Prometheus finds a group of proto-space jockeys on a mission to uncover the mystery of life itself, a mission that takes them to a distant alien world that will be instantly familiar to anyone who remembers the '79 original. What they find there has devastating implications for both the crew and mankind. Among the famous faces populating the cast are Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba, Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender, playing an early version of the android model that will eventually evolve into Ash and, later, Bishop. We hope that returning to this familiar territory will give Scott's faltering career the kick in the pants it needs. The last thing we need is another Robin Hood or, even worse, Hannibal. Watch our Trailers Without Pity team break down the Prometheus trailer and be prepared to test the old adage, "In space no one can hear you scream," when the movie arrives in theaters on June 8.
