It’s a good day to be a geek: Marvel released another, flashier trailer for The Avengers, featuring plenty of screentime for each of Earth’s mightiest heroes and some nice action shots, including the Hulk footage that’s largely been missing from previous promos. It still keeps the identity of the alien menace secret for now.
On top of that, Fox Studios has released a three-minute clip of Guy Pearce as Peter Weyland in Ridley Scott’s upcoming, highly anticipated Prometheus, which is purported to have a connection to Scott’s Alien. (The details are being kept to a minimum.)
The clip, set a TED conference in 2023, has a slight Blade Runner vibe to it, and — given that Pearce has described his role as a cameo and that the movie is set some 200 years into the future, suggests that the clip likely constitutes the opening minutes of the movie.
