Sci-fi fans — and movie fans in general — are still buzzing over whether Prometheus is in fact a prequel to the 1979 classic Alien. Director Ridley Scott and writer Damon Lindelof (erstwhile Lost co-showrunner) have both deflected the discussion, stating that while the film operates in the world of the Alien film, it’s not a part of the original narrative. Close viewers of the latest trailer — clocking in at two and half minutes — have pointed out evidence that the filmmakers aren’t being entirely truthful. There are indications that Facehuggers are present, and the actual alien seems to make an appearance during the frantic second half of the trailer. What we do know for certain is that the main characters arrive on a distant planet thinking they had been invited (via identical pictograms in ancient civilizations), and what they find is much more than they had bargained for. Prometheus, starring Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba and Noomi Rapace, opens June 8th, 2012. Check out the trailer following the click.
