In addition to some slithery nastiness and the ensuing body horror, this jumbo-sized trailer focuses far more extensively on Meredith Vickers, played by Charlize Theron. Theron's referred to Vickers as a "company woman" before, and fans of Alien know well that The Company usually isn't looking out for the well-being of any spaceship's crew.
Just because the company here is Weyland and not yet Weyland Yutani doesn't mean that it's somehow any more scrupulous.

One hell of a trailer, right? Prometheus was worth getting all lathered up about even on paper, but every trailer we've seen has made it clear that despite all the superheroics going down at multiplexes this summer, this Alien prequel could very well steal their thunder. Or at the very least, provide the summer's only blockbuster with really creepy parasitic extraterrestrial lifeforms.
Ridley Scott returns to the cinematic universe he helped create in his 1979 classic, and this time he shot in three dimensions, a first in his long career. He's working from a screenplay that started out with Jon Spaihts before being revised by Lost executive producer Damon Lindelof.
The film features an ensemble cast, starring Noomi Rapace as the heroine, along with Logan Marshall-Green as her research partner/squeeze, Theron as the suit, Idris Elba as the Prometheus captain, and Michael Fassbender as the resident robot. The rest of the cast includes Rafe Spall, Kate Dickie, Sean Harris, Benedict Wong, Guy Pearce, and Patrick Wilson.
Prometheus arrives in theaters on June 8th.
