"Prometheus" trailer: Ridley Scott is back with more sci-fi thrills

(CBS) It's been a big week for 2012 movie trailers - first "The Dark Knight Rises," then "The Hobbit" and now, a new teaser for Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" is here.

The film, Scott's first foray into sci-fi since 1982's "Blade Runner," will hit theaters on June 8.

Since "Prometheus" was announced, speculation has been rampant about whether or not the film is a prequel to the director's 1979 hit "Alien." It's been teased as one, but whether or not it actually is hasn't been confirmed or denied.

What is known is that the film is about a team of scientists who travel to a distant planet, searching for clues about the origin of mankind on Earth. The cast includes Noomi Rapace (the original Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish version of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"), Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Patrick Wilson, Guy Pearce and Idris Elba ("The Wire," "Luther").

Not much is seen in the fast-paced, one-minute trailer - lots of quick cuts, glimpses of space and spaceships, spooky music and more than a few screams - but it's sure to get fans talking.

Um the Space Jockey is in the film. That makes it a prequel to Alien.

And the Sumatran rat monkey is in King Kong, does that make it a prequel to Dead/Alive aka Braindead? There is plenty of information floating around out there about this film, so simplifying it down in terms of "because of A, then B" is another ludicrous attempt to start another of the dozens of meaningless arguments clogging up this board.

What is confirmed about Prometheus is that it is indeed set in the same universe as Alien, but the timeline of the film has not been officially confirmed anywhere. If the spoilers I have heard about the plot are true, it sounds pretty darn cool. With this, The Dark Knight Rises, and The Avengers, it's shaping up to be one geektastic summer.

Merry Christmas everyone.

It takes place thirty years before Alien. Plus if you break down the trailer scene by scene you will see a brief glimpse of an xenomorph egg.
