Okay, so that article title got away from me, but here’s a new Prometheus trailer straight from mother Russia, and I think it’s my favorite so far. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s better edited, or because everyone’s speaking Russian and thus the dialog isn’t mucking about with anything for me, but seriously, this has me looking forward to Prometheus more than any of the other footage. Incidentally, it’s been revealed that the planet they’re exploring in Prometheus is LV-223, while the planet in Alien was LV-426, making them officially not the same location. So now I’m curious again how much the movie is going to tie into Alien, as well as how the Space Jockey got there… (Via Twitch)
