We might end up remember 2012 as the year all of our box-office records were shattered. ‘The Hunger Games’ knocked out a few key records on March. ‘The Avengers’ appears ready to test a few worldwide records. And overseas, though we’re still weeks away from its opening, Ridley Scott’s ‘Prometheus’ just set a new record for IMAX ticket sales.
Fox really wants you guys to see this movie. 'Prometheus' isn't a hard sell to fans of Ridley Scott's original 'Alien' film (and the three sequels that followed), but for general audiences unfamiliar with 'Alien' or unaware of the threads 'Prometheus' shares with it, the dark sci-fi film might be a tougher sell.
So here's another featurette to make sure you are well educated before the film hits theaters this June!
As we gear up for this summer's movie season - which starts in a little over a week - one of our most anticipated is 'Prometheus' which has Ridley Scott returning to the science fiction well and the world of 'Alien.' But (as we've been told) it's not a prequel in the classic sense of setting up the first film. There's a new featurette, and it speaks to its brilliant director while offering new footage. Take a look...
It's hard to call what 20th Century Fox is doing to promote Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus' "viral." It's not like they're hiding what they're doing, it's not spreading because people found it accidentally, it didn't get popular without the context of the movie itself, and all the movie sites know about it. So let's call it 'in character.' Here's some posters for the movie which don't directly sell the movie.
Without question, ‘Prometheus’ is one of our most-anticipated blockbusters reaching theaters this summer. Sir Ridley Scott returning to the world of his seminal ‘Alien’ for what could amount to an epic prequel? Yeah, we’re in. But as the studio’s viral campaign ramps ups, details about the plot might be a little spoilerish, so keep that in mind as you click through and learn more about Michael Fassbender’s character, David.
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 the first screenplay written by Cormac McCarthy, Michael Fassbender is starring, and Ridley Scott is directing. That's enough to get us interested but they're not done yet. 'The Counselor' is drawing some serious attention across Hollywood and two recent Oscar-winners and one Oscar-nominee are interested in joining its ranks.
