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. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

Sounds like the description of every other sci-fi movie out there.

Jokes aside, Prometheus is perhaps the most intriguing movie of the year. Many of those gathered at WonderCon–a smaller-scale Comic-Con held Saturday at the Anaheim Convention Center–arrived eager to see Fox pull back the curtain on their upcoming blockbuster. Very little is known about the project even though it’s scheduled to hit theaters on June 8. Many are still wondering if it’s a sequel to Scott’s sci-fi horror classic Alien, a prequel, or something else entirely.

Watch the extended trailer below. Looks crazy.
