If for some godforsaken reason Prometheus isn’t on your must-see list this summer, a new international trailer with even more enticing footage has landed to convince you otherwise. Although previous marketing has nearly led us to believe we’ve seen just about everything there is from Ridley Scott‘s sci-fi blockbuster, this three-minute trailer reminds us that isn’t the case. We’re introduced to Charlize Theron‘s character and her motivations as well as a grab bag of alien goodies, including dismembered faces and a whole lot more. With The Avengers arriving this week and with it new trailers for The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man, the promising summer movie season has officially begun and there is going to be some hefty competition.

Ridley Scott, director of ‘Alien’ and ‘Blade Runner,’ returns to the genre he helped define. With ‘Prometheus’, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe.

Starring Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Guy Pearce, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall, Logan Marshall-Green, and Patrick Wilson, Prometheus will arrive on June 8th.
