Hear That? That's The Sound of a Fangirl SQUUEE!!
LOOK AT IT
Did you pee your pants in excitement? Firstly, the impressive cast -- Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, and Idris Elba. Also, "Meredith Vickers" is the best damn character name I have heard in ages, and Charlize Theron looks like the perfect cold-blooded Weyland-Yutani bitch, ice-colored hair slicked back and not a ruffle out of place. (Until LATER!!) And is that the space jockey near the end scaring the bejesus out of Elizabeth Shaw?!
I'm a huge fan of the Alien franchise. Each film has aspects that I like, though, if pressed, the original will always be my favourite for the unrelenting and oppressive claustrophobia it maintains throughout. Looking at the trailer for Prometheus, I really appreciate the sense of scope, seeing the horseshoe spaceship in more detail, and the promise of finally finding out more about the origins of the space jockey(s).
