Full disclosure: I’m at work, and I sort of hurried through this trailer before putting it up for you. I don’t really have any in-depth comments besides, “eh” and “meh” and “whatever”, which is sort of par for my Bryan Singer course. I’ll give it a rewatch later.
What do you folks think?
I haven’t seen any of Steve McQueen’s movies, though it is not out of lack of want. However, because of that I haven’t really kept tabs on the good sir and his efforts. You know who has? Eduardo Pluto, who was totally up my ass (I moaned a little, whatever) about this trailer dropping. So here it is.
Thoughts? Deep thoughts? Sociopolitical commentary? Ratings on the trailer, based on a one-through nineteen bags of popcorn scale?
Didn’t see this coming.
It’s a bit of a stretch, asking anyone to come out of Prometheus this weekend without an overwhelming sensation of feeling hollow. It’s a rather empty, desolate film in all the ways that matter: setting, visuals, character – even plot. There just isn’t a lot there.
Compounding the problem is that the marketing machine behind the film has inadvertently already given you 90% of it. Walking out of the theatre tonight or tomorrow will feel like you’ve just seen an extended trailer, albeit a two hour one.
Phew. I was frightened. We hadn’t been blasted across the nips with Prometheus images in like, a day. Maybe even two. Here’s some off the digi-presses, courtesy of Advertisement (Entertainment) Weekly.
Holy shit. I don’t even know. I watched this video three times, and by the second time I was ready to destroy every single electronic device I own. There’ve been plenty of these Weyland Industries “commercials” floating around but this is definitely the first one that’s creeped me the fuck out. Michael Fassbender, you are truly a terrifying man-shark-actor. I mean, your acting is choice and your portrayal of an android is top notch, but I also want to kill you with fire.

Michael Fassbender May Star In Ridley Scott Directed Adaptation Of Cormac McCarthy’s ‘The Counselor’
Well if this isn’t a collection of various fielded talents right here. Dope director, talented writer (though I’m not insane for the dude), and one serious man crush of an actor. Could they!, could they really be converging?
I can’t wait for the official Prometheus trailer dropping…today? Or is it tomorrow? It’s soon! Soon man. This week of trailers has my brovaries throbbing. Throbbing so hard! Want a still of Magneto holding a flashlight in anticipation of the trailer? Hell yeah. Get some.
The X:Men First Class posters released by Fox sucked. Fact, not opinion. Dope website that I sometimes snag from, Sucker Punch, issued a challenged to its readers. The decree read (I’m paraphrasing), “Talented motherfuckers, we can do better than this.”
And they did.
Check out some of the results.
I’m stoked for X-Men: First Class. The more I see of it, the more I’m vibing with the retro approach to the whole fiasco. So I was totally stoked for this Communist trailer for the upcoming flick. There’s a few new scenes, including Magneto rocking out with his powers as a young kid.
Hit the jump for the video.
