Break It Down – Prometheus Trailer

Alright, Prometheus trailer. As long as we get a good look at Bob I’ll be happy. Let’s do this.

0:14 – Ah, Ridley Scott, famed director of Hannibal and G.I. Jane

0:17 – I’m a sucker for space ships.

0:22 – Three? Is this the square root prequel to Nine? I’m excited already.

0:23 – Ok, flame throwers and space ships, I’m listening.

0:28 – Hmmmm, this slanted line character seems interesting.

0:30 – Ah! Too many lines. Too many lines. What does it all mean?

0:34 – Me: Are there any “N’s?”

Pat Sajak: Nope, no “N’s,” sorry.

Me: I’d like to solve the puzzle.

Pat Sajak: But you just guessed..

Me: I said I’d like to solve the puzzle.

Pat Sajak: Do whatever you want, just promise to let me out of this basement.

0:36  – Pretty ladies in space… go on…

0:46 – What did Prometheus do again? (Quickly reference brain, definitely not wikipedia) Ah, yes, stole fire from the Gods and was bound to a giant rock while an eagle ate his liver every day. I hope this movie is the origin story of the iPod.

What can I say? I’m a sucker for space stuff. This is a prequel to Alien. It could go either way to be honest. I gotta say, I like that Ridley Scott likes strong female protagonists.

Prometheus looks like it’s going to be epic and awesome, but I can’t imagine it being something I’d stay awake through the entire time. Still though… aliens, flame throwers and space ladies. I’m buying a ticket; even if it does turn out that we’re all clones of the original lady thing or something… androids.
