If you've seen the trailer for Ridley Scott's Alien quasi-prequel Prometheus, then you're well aware of the undeniable similarities with the original Alien trailer. But now someone has gone the extra step — recutting the Alien trailer so it exactly mimics Prometheus, with the same soundtrack, fast cuts and title crawl. Check it out. [via First Showing]
In a decade noted for its horror and thrillers ("The Omen," "The Exorcist," "Marathon Man"), "Alien" is still, in my opinion, the most piss-your-pants scary film of the 1970s, if not ever. Just watching the trailer makes my heartbeat rise.
I really hope "Prometheus" can live up to that promise, because it seems that's what Ridley Scott wants to invoke with this trailer.
