Like He Exploded from Inside: Prometheus International Trailer

Darling readers, if you are eagerly awaiting the US launch of Prometheus in just over a month, you might want to take a look at the extended international trailer, just released yesterday and spreading like wildfire across the internet.

Although I don’t think this will have the same visceral grittiness of the original Alien and Aliens, I’m still excited to kick off the summer movie season with Prometheus.  If you aren’t sold (and even if you are), Joanna K Neilson’s excellent analysis Prometheus: 5 reasons it won’t be as good as Alien (and 3 reasons why it could be great) is certainly worth a read.

While we’re on the subject of good reads, I also wanted to pass along this rather good list of Six Horror Flicks that are Actually Funny.  You all probably know how I feel about movie lists by now, but I have to give this one some credit for including a number of movies that I completely adore.  If you haven’t seen Slither yet (directed by the epic James Gunn and starring Nathan Fillion) you really should, darlings.

Speaking of Nathan Fillon, it appears that the long-awaited sequel to Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog may finally be progressing. With the success of The Cabin in the Woods and next week’s release of The Avengers, this rather seems to be turning into the year of Whedon. Our own Acadia Einstein wrangled a sneak preview, so be sure to check out his review of The Avengers before you commit to staying up late for a midnight showing.

And since this seems to be turning into a wholesale round-up of what’s hot in horror, I’ll go ahead and also pass along that Disney has acquired the rights to film Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book.  Here’s hoping that Disney can find a way to keep this tale of an orphaned boy who lives in a graveyard and is raised by ghosts as deliciously macabre as the story deserves.

  3. With a toddler and a job that we commute an hour each way, finding the time or desire to get out to the movies is few and far between (I saw you “liked” my review for Cabin in the Woods. I think that was our first movie since Super 8), but I think we’ll make a point of going to Prometheus. Looks like good fun.

    And you have some other great stuff here. Was surprised by how much I enjoyed Slither. Forgot Nathan Fillion was in it. And I’ll have to pass on the word about a sequel to Dr. Horrible. I know many people who will be pleased.

    Hope you’re having a good weekend.

    • Well, hello there, Paul. Always delighted to have you stop by. I seem to remember opening a comment window to reply to your thoughts on Cabin in the Woods, but I must have seen something shiny and wandered off before I responded. 😉 Slither was really a fun movie, but then a have quite the soft spot for horror with a bit of campy humor. I caught an Australian film a while back that had some similarities – Black Sheep, I believe, if it ever comes up on your radar.

  4. Hey Eva,
    I can’t wait to see Prometheus either it should be pretty damned good

  5. I am so looking forward to this movie, I would even venture and say that this is the movie I have been most excited for in a long time. I hope it lives up to the hype!

  6. Thanks to the nod about the book. Its dark, but captivating. I might need to read it.

    By the way, Slither – awesome. I think a thousand viewings of that movie wouldn’t be enough. Nathan needs to be a star and we need him in more movies.

  7. I finally found out you have categories (yes, Immm noooblet *grins*) I clicked on trailers knowing you would have Prometheus up! OMG! I am dying to see this. Scott’s films rule!!!!! Thank you for the tease!!!!

  8. Nice post. Prometheus looks exciting. I want to see it just because Idris Elba is in it :-). Need to see Aliens again first though.
