December 20, 2011 (5:01 am) GMT
In addition to snippets of some intense scenes from the space thriller, these two teasers offer some behind-the-scene footage and some words from director Ridley Scott.

A few days before the trailer for "" makes its debut, 20th Century Fox hypes up the anticipation by releasing two previews. Both sneak peeks offer few glimpses at some horror scenes taking place in the extraterrestrial settings. They also give a look at some behind-the-scene footage with director Ridley Scott talking about what to expect from the thriller.

In "Prometheus", Scott creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth. The discovery leads them to 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.

The thriller film was originally planned as a prequel for 1979's "Alien", but the storyline evolved to a more stand-alone mythology. In a recent interview with Filmophilia, Scott insisted that he will not relate his movie to the 1979 thriller "at all."

"I mean, you could actually say, and there's a quote I did, a pretty good quote: By the end of the third act you start to realize there's a DNA of the very first alien, but none of the subsequent aliens," he said. "To tell you what that is is a pity, and I'm not going to tell you, because it's actually good, pretty organic to the process and to the original. But we go back, we don't go forward."

The first trailer for "Prometheus" is set to be unleashed on Thursday, December 22, while the film itself will arrive in the U.S. theaters on June 8, 2012. It is supported by , , , , , , and .
