It’s a Space Jockey Extravaganza in ‘Prometheus’ Screengrabs! Updated in HD!

Prometheus

Ok, so the trailer for Prometheus is finally online. We’ve reveled in it at least once; some of us have watched it 14 times (I know, I’m sick in the head). On the surface it’s just (just?!) a mind-blowing sci-fi horror flick that taps into the soul of Ridley Scott’s 1978 Alien, but it’s actually much, much more…

From the pods to the Space Jockey rising out of the ground with his enormous canon (obviously a moment from the film’s finale, which will set the stage for the big discovery in Alien), there’s no doubt in my mind that this Damon Lindelof-penned flick is an authentic prequel to said film.

Thumbing frame-by-frame through the trailer we’ve uncovered quite a few freeze-frame treasures that range from the aforementioned Space Jockey rising out of the ground to the head of a Jockey sitting on a bed, and even what looks to be a device that channels the alien race. It looks like all sorts of awesome.

Shot in 3-D, Prometheus launches to the depths of space on June 8. Prometheus
