During its production, director Ridley Scott's long-in-development "Prometheus" has been referred to as "sort of" an "Alien" prequel, something that has sci-fi fans understandably excited.
Scott himself has been cagey about the movie's details - neither confirming nor denying the "prequel" tag, saying only that the movie "shares the DNA" of his seminal 1979 film. (Note how the title "Prometheus" is given very similar treatment to the title "Alien" in both trailers).
Well, the first trailer is here, and it doesn't exactly clear up the mystery, but it does confirm that the movie absolutely has the "Alien" look and feel. It also has a "must see" cast including Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Guy Pearce, and Idris Elba.
