When it comes to new movie trailers, there are trailers and then there are trailers, you know? But rarely is there a trailer for a trailer.

Until now.

If you're one of the gazillions of fans eagerly awaiting your first look at director Ridley Scott's wildly anticipated "Alien" prequel (?) "Prometheus," well, we have good news and bad news for you. The good news? There's a brand new trailer for "Prometheus!" The bad news? It's actually a trailer for the real trailer, which won't be out for three more days. Sounds like someone is playing with fire.

Of course, "Prometheus," which marks Scott's first return to the world of "Alien" since he created the original 1979 classic, isn't just chock full of superstar acting talent like Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce and Idris Elba; it's also one of the most secretive projects since the development of the A-bomb.

So at this point, anything we can get at all about "Prometheus is worth a few squees, even if they're tempered by having to wait another 72 excruciating hours for the full trailer treatment. Check it out, courtesy of Apple Trailers — and get ready for the tease of your life:
