And Oh Yeah, Aliens: A new Ridley Scott Masterpiece? "Prometheus" Trailer

So, if my agitated, visceral reaction is any indication, this could be.....well, check it out-either with headphones, or good sound.

Based on an idea that was supposed to be the prequel to 'Alien', the trailer seems to speak for its self. There are obvious visual and design queues to Scott's disturbingly scary 1979 amazement of a film and there seem to be some similar story elements. It will be interesting to see how 30 years has altered his view of the future commercialization of space....I also want to know if he uses the curious oral history of West Africa's Dogon people as any sort of guide or reference....
