J.J. Abrams is known for keeping his productions sealed up pretty tightly. His latest endeavor, the sequel to his amazing reboot on the Star Trek franchise is no different. Today we get a peek at just what’s in store with a teaser to Star Trek Into Darkness. It’s only 66 seconds long, but after watching it three times straight and getting goosebumps each time, I can’t wait to see a full trailer. Hell….I can’t wait to see the movie!
Prometheus was THE movie for me this summer. The one I’ve been craving for what seems like ages. The one that I drooled over after having seen that first trailer. When word came out that Ridley Scott was returning to the science fiction genre, I got goosebumps. It was an Alien prequel, and then it wasn’t, but it was going to be set in the same universe. Either way, I was happy. I just wanted a good sci-fi movie.
There was a lot of hoopla surrounding this film and once the marketing machine started up, it was hard to shield myself from the tsunami of….stuff that littered the web. Trailers, stills, clips, behind the scenes footage and lastly the viral marketing campaign. In an attempt to remain as spoiler free as possible, I stayed away from all of it, with the exception of the first trailer, and one I happened to see at the theater only a couple of weeks ago. I operate under the less-is-more theory. I don’t want to know anything because I prefer to let it all unfold while actually watching it. Which was a little hard considering the UK got the film a week before the States, but I prevailed. Finally Prometheus hit Stateside and to say I was excited would be a huge understatement.
There has been so much speculation about Ridley Scott’s latest science fiction film, Prometheus. Will it be a prequel to his classic Alien or not. Will it involve the space jockey or not. Apparently final word is that it is not so much a prequel, but will be relatable to the universe Scott created with Alien back in 1979.
Marrying together two disparate genres can be a risky move. It’s like combining bacon and chocolate. You’d never think that they would go good together until you actually try it. The thought of tying a western to a science fiction alien invasion/abduction story seemed like an odd choice, but in the end, it actually worked surprisingly well.
