Fans are complaining that director Ridley Scott has given too much away in the latest trailer for his highly anticipated new film Prometheus.

The international trailer for the science-fiction film, due in New Zealand cinemas on June 7, hit the net earlier today.

Two trailers have already been released, but the third is longest by three minutes and gives away more details of the film's plot.

It also contains all-new glimpses of new Alien-esque creatures.


Fans have complained it shows too much of what Prometheus, billed as a sort-of prequel to Scott's Alien series in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, is about.

"Major spoilers," warns the first commentator on the video's YouTube page. "Why did I watch this? Nooooo!"

Scott Weinberg also posted this warning on Twitter: "Based on the newest Prometheus trailer, I'm pretty sure I know the final scene of the film."

Kiwi entertainment journalist David Farrier simply posted this note: "Do not watch the spoiler-filled Prometheus trailer."

Others were more positive, with fans describing the trailer as "snazzy" and "brill".

And a Twitter user called Rob said: "I feel like the trailers for Prometheus give so much away, but I can't help watching them."

Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron and Idris Elba are the film's biggest stars.
