Alien's original 1979 trailer remixed to channel Prometheus

Have you seen the original 1979 trailer for Alien recently? Although the film itself stands the test of time, the trailer is kind of primitive to our 21st-century eyes. But now it has an up-to-date remix that matches the trailer for Prometheus, Ridley Scott's highly anticipated prequel to Alien.

If you've recently been in a coma, or otherwise away from your computer, you may have missed the trailer for Prometheus. It's pulse-pounding, airlock-blasting awesome, and it has our anticipation meter up to 11.

In the last days of 2011, YouTuber HeresJohnny1991 decided it was about time that Alien got the trailer it deserved. And it deserved to look like Prometheus.

You'll find the trailer for Prometheus, followed by the new cut, below.

But first, check out the original.
