I was never a fan of the Alien series growing up; I was more of a Predator fan. I could appreciate a great horror film but it couldn't grab me the way Schwarzenegger and Weathers could. So you can tell that my excitement for Prometheus was a 'meh.' I wasn't on the bandwagon like everyone else who writes on this site, even when the first posters and set photos were released. "Big deal", I said, "who cares for a prequel to Alien when there's a huge chance it's going to suck."
My feelings have changed after watching the first official trailer. I shall say no more, just watch the damn trailer.
I was recently discussing with a friend about the best trailers ever and Alien had entered the conversation. Seems as Fox Searchlight knows exactly that and has essentially remade it for Prometheus. In terms of remakes, I welcome this with open arms. Now to the trailer. Nostalgia hit me harder than Lindsay Lohan hitting rock-bottom. It honestly amazed me to the point where I had to lift my jaw from the ground. I'm now intrigued to find out what exactly are they looking for. Maybe I'll give the Alien series a second chance now.
