Last night a brand new international trailer for Prometheus was released — showcasing blasters, Space Jockey ghosts, and some brand new aliens to haunt your dreams.
There was a lot of insanity packed into one trailer. So we've gone through shot by shot, and rounded up everything, along with our speculations and theories about what's really happening in Ridley Scott's new movie. Warning: Major spoilers ahead.
Hot Spaceship Porn Action. Look at the lovely Prometheus rocketing into action!
Idris at another deck (seems like he's the only crew member doing any work around here).

Invented in 2024. Perfected in 2073. The Weyland Modular Computing Device (WMCD) can provide audio, visual and kinesthetic enhancement to any room, anywhere. The WMCD picks up live video feeds from a remote receiver and fills any space with the sights and sounds of that environment in real-time. The WMCD can also recreate a full-surround environment of a specific location from any point in time for academic study or personal entertainment.
The pair of lovesick scientists Elizabeth Shaw (played by Noomi Rapace) and Charlie Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green ) give the same speech you've seen before about their star map. But this time they're introduced by the boss lady, Meredith Vickers (Charlize Theron), "Good morning I am Meredith Vickers, and it's my job to make sure you do yours. Ok then. On with the show."
And yes she's actually inside the Prometheus — this is one of the nicer quarters on the ship (we imagine it's Meredith's room) with the changing scenery screen. Get a better look at the quarters and other rooms inside the ship in this massive gallery of the ship.
And FINALLY we're out and about! Check out the first look from Shaw's helmet cam.
Remember the little red laser balls from the first trailer? Turns out they're officially called a Spectograph. So now you know. Here's the official run-down on them.
This next-generation device, used by Weyland geologists and engineers, surveys unknown planetary terrain in the pre-terraforming process. An omni-directional laser live-maps 3D topography and sends the detailed scanned images to the viewing platform. A new hyper-conducting spherical shell allows smooth, self-propelled flight in any atmosphere. Polymer film bio-sensors can detect airborne toxins and life forms down to 500 nanometers.
And just like that, everything goes to Hell. The man in the little old-lady glasses and the mohawk find a new alien, that starts off looking like the T-1000 but quickly turns into a space cobra and bites one of their hands. Here is an excellent gif from hoyvin-glavin of the beast in attack mode.
Here's another shot of the creature, right before it's sprung on its victim. Note the color change in color right in the creatures face (or ass we don't really know). We're still not sure which crew member this fella attacked, it's either glasses or mohawk. Either way we're pretty sure both are doomed as glasses disappears pretty quickly after this scene and Mohawk appears later as a monster.
Back on Prometheus, everything else is also going to hell. Some sort of giant head explodes similar to blasting a gallon of milk with a shotgun. At first we thought this was the elephant-like head of a Space Jockey (which we've already seen on the table in the ship's medical facility). But upon further inspection we're not 100% sure. Check out the "eye" on the left. It looks more humanoid. Plus is that the bridge of a nose? Maybe this is whatever was inside the Space Jockey suit head? We already know that the elephant-shaped figures are really more suits than actual creatures. Was there a head inside this helmet?
Shaw is locked out of a room that is covered in blood.

Buried in another international trailer is this horrifying gem. Check out Shaw's stomach right before the incision. And yes, we know there was a cut, because we've already spotted the scar.
Thank you for the tip, LandersDip.
Also hiding in the "other" international trailer. This creature who crawls out of a dead crew member's mouth. Which we believe to is the space cobra, covered in blood.
