Despite a mountain of trailers, we haven’t seen a single clip from Ridley Scott‘s upcoming sci-fi blockbuster Prometheus. That is, until today. Revealing what is likely an early scene from the film, we have Idris Elba piloting our main ship onto the alien planet that our crew will exploring. The cutting seems a bit fast — after all, most of these “first look” clips aren’t exactly how they’ll appear in the film — but we a previously unheard line from Logan Marshall-Green, that “God does not draw straight lines.” With the immaculate production design, I’m hoping the story dives into some of these ideas in a satisfying way.
We’ve also got the first clip from the Ben Wheatley‘s Sightseers. Following his frightening Kill List from earlier this year, Sightseers is written by and starring Alice Lowe and Steve Oram, following the two on a journey through the Abbey Oxford Caravan. Judging from the clips, the Edgar Wright-produced project seems to more of a comedy that his last work, one that could turn into something dark at any moment. I love the exchange taking place and one can check out both clips below via Apple and Quinzaine.
Sightseers premieres at Cannes, while Prometheus lands on June 8th.
