First trailer, next year's sequel to 2012's "Prometheus."

Looks promising, but then again so was "Prometheus."

This one looks to have more action and intensity. But again, so did "Prometheus" based on the trailer.

I did NOT like Prometheus at all. This one looks interesting and I am looking forward to it. Hopefully it does not disappoint.

I don't like how the trailer was cut. The first 30 seconds look like a video ad that you'd see on Twitter or other social media (and that's intentional). The movie looks promising but I'm cautious after the poor writing in Prometheus.

As a self-proclaimed Aliens superfan, I will cross my fingers for this one. I had high hopes for Prometheus but was mostly disappointed. Trailer looks promising, but we'll have to wait and see.

I really liked Prometheus. Looking forward to this sequel.

Also, can't wait for WWZ 2.

I loved the first half of PROMETHEUS. Then it took a turn, crashed, and never recovered. Still, I don't hate the movie. Just found it a disappointment. Even when Ridley Scott's movies are a narrative mess of a story (as they have been for the past 30 years), they still look and sound stunningly beautiful.

This looks promising.

But honestly ... I'd much rather Ridley Scott and everyone else who grew up loving these movies would take that love and do something new. (As long as it isn't Fern Gully with machine guns, like Cameron's AVATAR.)

For me, ALIEN and ALIENS are undisputed classics. Everything after that in the franchise just made a mess. Ripley, Hicks, Newt, and Bishop made it back safely and lived happily ever after, and I'll fight anyone who says different.

Because Alien and Aliens are the cornerstones of my existance I will watch. But they have a lot to make up for with Prometheus.

Agree with all of this.

Another Alien superfan here. I will go see it, of course. I was so-so about Prometheus. I'm not sure what it was, but something about the setting of the film and the design of the ship made me feel like it wasn't apart of the Alien universe. The tech in Prometheus seemed to be more advanced than that in Alien despite being a prequel.

Future films should take a page out of Alien: Isolation's book. The style & setting of that universe was flawless. It was also probably one of the better Alien stories told in the last decade(s).

The ship in the original Alien was a working class freighter-- like a freight boat that typically isn't filled with the fanciest and most expensive equipment. I haven't played Isolation, but from what I gather, it's the same type of ship. Aliens focused on military tech (which is built for function and durability over style), and Alien3 was an abandoned prison. We've never seen a Weyland ship with facilities for science research and the wealthy elite until Prometheus, so it doesn't really clash with the other Aliens films.
At the same time, Prometheus writes itself into a corner for the future, instead of the other Alien movies that aren't focused on high-end facilities.
