Prometheus trailer gets a trailer

Teasing glimpse at Ridley Scott’s new epic

A sneak peak at Prometheus has arrived, in the form of a trailer for the upcoming trailer (the full thing is expected to arrive on Thursday).

The 30-second promo features director Ridley Scott dropping hints about his new epic, and there’s at least as much behind-the-scenes stuff as there is actual movie footage.

So, what is there to tide us over until Thursday? Well, there’s a look at that giant-head thing-a-mi-bob that’s been dominating the images so far, and we see a blonde Michael Fassbender examining some bizarre specimen.

And as we see Idris Elba screaming, the crew must encounter something pretty damned terrifying…

Oh, and there’s a few brief frames of some very unsettling business with a helmet going on at the end that harks back to the superior sci-fi scares of Alien.

Check out the footage here:

Prometheus opens on 1 June 2012.

Is this week shaping up to be the greatest week for trailers ever? Are all the new promos eclipsing your excitement for Christmas? Talk to us!

      Looks amazing. There will be more atmosphere in the upcoming trailer than the entirety of the 2 AVP movies and Paul 'muppet' Anderson knows it.

      Can....not....wait for this. One of the most (for me anyway) anticipated movies in a looooong time

      Looks intense, in the best kind of way. Really glad scott chose to construct the majority of the sets rather than go down the digital route. Even though i have no evidence what so ever that trailer just makes me feel like we will definitely see some form of xenomorph. I'm now off to find a large enough freezer to crawl in to until next summer.

      Screw Batman 8 - THIS is a film to get excited about! Even a trailer for a trailer makes me tingle. Nice to have the Ridley Scott who actually makes an effort return at last.
