Here’s a very special Saturday treat, courtesy of Bloody reader “Nostromo89″.

Being that Ridley Scott and Prometheus has been in our news quite a bit as of late, he wanted to share with us the very, very, very first ever teaser trailer for Scott’s Alien.

It’s something that a lot of you may not have seen, and featured the voice talents of the great Percy Rodriguez (Jaws). Even for the late 70′s, the edit by Twentieth Century Fox makes the film look truly frightening (which it is). Check it out below!

In the 1979 film, “The commercial vessel Nostromo receives a distress call from an unexplored planet. After searching for survivors, the crew heads home only to realize that a deadly bio-form has joined them.

It starred Tom Skerritt, Sigourney Weaver, John Hurt, Yaphet Kotto, Harry Dean Stanton, Ian Holm, and Veronica Cartwright.

    Very cool to find this old teaser. I love Percy Rodriguez’s voice as well.

  • RevTim128

    This trailer would have made me completely uninterested in seeing this, one of my favorite movies.

  • FreakyFreelings

    Alien is one of my favorite movies, but this trailer sucks. I would have no interest in seeing it going on that promo alone.

  • REC03

    in the immortal words of a Mr. Chandler Bing: this trailer DOES NOT work! still cool to see though.
