Re: Prometheus: Ridley Scott returns to Sci-Fi

Looks intriguing - especially from a visual standpoint. Love the cinematography and overall mood. I'll definitely go see this flick.

But from a purely aesthetic standpoint, though, the slow reveal of "PROMETHEUS" in the trailer is distracting. I certainly understand and appreciate its connection to "Alien" but the first time I saw the trailer, I wondered if my internet connection had introduced unintended artifacts into the video. Plus, the tagline, "They went looking for our beginning - what they found could be our end," was painfully cliché.
I'm starting to worry about this voyage ...
