Prometheus

Yet another tantalizing piece of "Prometheus" video has landed on the Internet today, and though it still reveals nothing about the story, there are definitely a few Easter eggs in there if you look hard enough. "Prometheus" will be Ridley Scott’s first foray into science fiction, the genre he helped define, since "Blade Runner," and to say that we at MTV News are excited about this movie would be a gross understatement.

To the casual viewer, the new promo really doesn’t reveal anything. The video itself seems more like a set of interviews about the director, and not the film itself. And what does Ridley have to say about all of this? “It’s all about everything. I’m one of those directors that comes from the all about everything school.” Very enlightening.

But what the promo doesn’t tell you, it shows you, teasing us with just a few more tidbits that were left on the cutting room floor in previous trailers. Here’s what we found most interesting about the new promo.

Once in a generation, there is born a talent so great, so astounding, that it cannot be stopped. When I think back on the pantheon of actors in the world, one name tops my list...

Zane. Billy Zane.

The bad boy baldy has played some of the most crucial and instrumental roles in the great rolodex of film, gifting us with unforgettable moments that have warmed viewers' tender hearts on the coldest of nights.

With "Titanic" back in theaters, my mind is not on Leo and Kate (sorry Jack, I totally let go), but on the most inZane man on the planet. In honor of the return of his most iconic role to date, I present to you, the top five greatest Billy Zane moments ever captured on film.

Sunday’s release of the new “Total Recall” trailer may have hinted at a movie that will forever change the hearts and minds of today’s seven year old nerds-to-be, but when I think back on my childhood, the original “Total Recall” stands out as one of the most totally awesome (and possibly the best) Schwarzenegger movies ever made. Sit back, contract a cold, and take a deep dive with me into a movie that is so effing cool, it can’t be found anywhere on Netflix.

Mars. Forever the downfall of filmmakers everywhere. Remember “Red Planet”? How about “Mission to Mars”? Of course you don’t. They were so atrocious your mind forced the traumatic memories into the deep recesses of your consciousness, so you would never have to face your Mars movie shame ever again. Rejoice Mars fans! There is one film that accomplished what others couldn’t, a movie that sets the world record for most Arnold grunts in one film, and one in which a woman sports three breasts. Paul Verhoeven, we thank you verily.

This is going to take a while before it makes sense (if it ever does), so bear with me. But... I had a dream. Not a metaphorical dream, a literal one: all about "Prometheus," in fact!

In it I was a member of the science team sent on the Prometheus to research the mysteries of mankind’s beginning or whatever. To be honest, I really had no idea why we were there, the dream just sort of started -- something that anyone who saw "Inception" will understand.

On the planet, we found something. No, it wasn’t a crashed Space Jockey mothership filled with alien eggs. In fact, we didn’t even see Space Jockeys. But what we did find was a mysterious machine of utmost mystery and machineriness. It was massive, and was clearly Space Jockey tech. We did the only thing we possibly could do: we turned it on.

Dwayne Johnson

These days, The Rock is cooking something a little different: money, and tons of it.

Every major studio is now privy to what was once just a whispered secret in the darkness: Dwayne Johnson saves franchises. He is the proverbial Luke to cinema's Princess Leia, and as he proved in "Fast Five," and hopes to carry on in "Journey 2," putting The Rock in what would otherwise have been a mediocre movie isn't such a bad idea.

In that spirit, here are five other franchises that we think Dwayne Johnson could bring back to life.

Ben Affleck

Ben Affleck is looking at “The Stand,” and Warner Brothers is standing behind him.

Deadline broke the news on Friday that Affleck is the WB's choice to adapt the massive Stephen King novel, marking the first big announcement about the long-in-development project since August. Last we checked in, "The Stand" was rumored to be helmed by none other than David Yates of "Harry Potter" fame, but this, it seems, is no longer the case.
