viral robot commercial), but what really emerges from the trailer is a grand scope and size. The imagery looks fantastic and whoever crafted the trailer did a really great job of putting the individual moments together in a way that makes for a rather awesome whole. Take a look:
I showed this video to my skeptical brother and the reaction was one of wide-eyed anticipation. I think it worked. That final minute and a half is some intense work and genuinely rather scary. I can only hope the final product is as good. Still, even if this is-it-or-isn't-it-no-I-really-think-it-is prequel to Alien disappoints on one level, I think it's safe to say it is already an unqualified success on a purely technical, whiz-bang level. Just look a those visuals! Truly mesmerising and I cannot wait to savour them on the big screen. Even the actors, usually sidelined in films like this, all appear to be blazing - I was worried most of all about Noomi Rapace, especially after the piss poor effort she put in that recent Sherlock Holmes movie, but perhaps I needn't have worried.
Ugh, don't Charlize and Fassbender just make you want to have sex?
