The first official clip for Ridley Scott's kinda-sorta prequel to Alien, Prometheus, named after the ship that carries stars Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class), Charlize Theron (The Road), Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Guy Pearce (Lockout), and Idris Elba (The Wire), to a new ominous planet that is rumored to hold the key to man's origins on Earth, has been released online.

There has been a lot of press surrounding the new Prometheus and its implied connections with the iconic 1979 Alien, also directed by Scott. Scott wanted Prometheus to be in the same vein as Alien, but have its own story. "Ridley had a very specific idea of the story he wanted to tell. And sometimes you have to look at different versions of it to know what it is you want and what you don't want," Prometheus screenwriter Damon Lindelof told Entertainment Weekly, reports AceShowbiz.com.

You can catch Prometheus in theaters on June 8.
