‘Prometheus’ TV Spot Shows Off New Footage

Ridley Scott’s ‘Prometheus‘ has been ramping up its advertising, and we’ve been hit with trailers both foreign and domestic. The film’s due out June 8, but we’re now getting TV spots for the upcoming feature, which suggests that 20th Century Fox is fairly confident about the film they’ve got. And this new commercial makes us just as confident.

It’s a cut down version of what we’ve seen before, but it’s all there. ‘Prometheus is a science fiction thriller with a scale to which only someone like Ridley Scott can deliver. I also like that they throw in ‘Alien,’ ‘Blade Runner’ and ‘Gladiator’ as his calling cards. Two of his science fiction films, and his biggest success. I guess they could have thrown in ‘Black Hawk Down,’ though it’s no surprise they left out ‘Legend’ or ‘A Good Year.’

The film is not yet rated, and we’ve been hearing that may eventually be a bone of contention. Scott has recently said that the rating they go with will come down to what Tom Rothman thinks they can sell. If they do get an R and the film is a huge hit, this will speak well for the possibility of Guillermo Del Toro finally getting to do an R rated version of ‘At the Mountains of Madness.’ Or at least, we can hope.
