Who Cares If It's a Prequel or Sequel? The "Prometheus" Teaser Is All That and a Bag of Fassbender

Another movie that has fanboys (and girls) foaming at the mouth is the Aliens sequel/prequel, Prometheus. Heading into theaters sure to topple the box office competition on June 8, the Ridley Scott-directed sci-fi flick is has already stirred debate among film geeks everywhere with the filmmaker's claim that it's not connected to the previous Alien movies? Why be so coy about it? I wish most sci-fi movies today were connected to the uber awesome/uber successful Aliens franchise!

We already know Ridley Scott is taking the helm for this "new" movie. But this time he's uniting a new cast of victims, er, explorers together to (according to IMDB) "discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race."

The oh-so-perfect coveted cast includes Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba, Patrick Wilson and Charlize Theron, who play the doomed explorers in this new, um, re-imagining of the franchise.

Call it whatever you want. I'm calling this trailer awesome.

I love it! Hopefully, this will be the kind of imaginative and massive science-fiction movie we haven't seen in years! I'm really hoping Ridley Scott is back at the top of his game for this. This is a great start.

Whatever the hell it ends up being it sure does look pretty epic, consider this fanboy expectation peaked!
