Prometheus’ Marketing Is Winning Me Over

Prometheus Is Rapidly Ascending On My List Of Summer Movies To Look Forward To

Where Does It Rank On You “Can’t Wait” Meter?
The news surrounding Ridley Scott’s Prometheus always felt disjointed enough to keep my excitement at bay. First it was an Alien prequel (which sounds awesome), then it wasn’t and now it is but we just can’t say that it is because the studio doesn’t want us to (and reportedly doesn’t think Noomi Rapace is a big enough star). Its all confusing. Then I saw the trailer …
and I started to get a wee bit excited. Then I saw the Guy Pearce “viral” video …

and I started to get really excited because it looks like Scott is bringing in some of the underlying social commentary that made Blade Runner and the original Alien so awesome. Then I saw the Dave “viral” video …
and now I think this is moving even with, and perhaps past The Dark Knight Rises on my “can’t wait” meter.
