New Pics for Ridley Scott's Prometheus, First Trailer for Martian Epic John Carter Arrives
There have already been some low-res scans, as well as a trailer, leaked from the set of Prometheus, Ridley Scott's Alien revisit (Scott himself claims the film "shares the same DNA" as his earlier film, although it is not, he stresses, a prequel).
But finally here are some bona fide hi-res images, including shots of the space-bound explorers Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace and Logan Marshall-Green exploring a foreign planet, as well as Charlize Theron and Idris Elba standing on the bridge of the Prometheus, a ship, plus a snap of the director himself.
Prometheus is scheduled for release in the UK on 1 June 2012. Check out the pics below.
THE FULL TRAILER FOR JOHN CARTER IS HERE
Last week we saw a series of inspiring images from the Martian comic book adaptation John Carter, in which civil war veteran John Carer find himself transported the the planet Barsroom (Mars) and embroiled in another, rather grander sort of war.
And now the first full trailer is here. Created by Pixar great and the man behind Wall.E and Finding Nemo Andrew Stanton, the movie definitely seems to be going for a kind of Star Wars/Conan/The Matrix mix, complete with pretty terrific CGI monsters, including that white ape we've been hearing so much about.
George Lucas, eat your heart out.
