You can say one thing for Ridley Scott’s forthcoming Alien prequel Prometheus, it has some of the most compelling promotional material out there. First there was the faux-TED talk from the future, then there was the trailer, and now there is this exquisite short film starring Michael Fassbender as an android produced by Weyland industries.
In just a few minutes, it shows off a strong performance from Fassbender, some wonderful imagery, and the same tinkering with issues of humanity that might remind you of Blade Runner. If this is the kind of work we can expect from this project, then I am even more excited about Prometheus.
- Alien prequel is dead, long live Prometheus
- …which is totally an Alien prequel but that’s okay because it looks great
