Big Trouble in Little China's Jack Burton watches the Prometheus trailer

Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Question: what do you get when you take a character that Kurt Russell played in the 1980s (inspired by John Wayne, no less) and have him comment on Ridley Scott's latest opus, Prometheus? Why, dear reader, it's the internet's latest mash-up and collision of two cinematic worlds.

Russell's character is, of course, two-fisted trucker Jack Burton from the 1986 John Carpenter movie Big Trouble in Little China. If you've seen Big Trouble, then you may recall Burton's style of saying what's on his mind and in his larger-than-life style.

Maybe it's a commentary on the critical pummelling that Prometheus has taken from some quarters but the line delivery works pretty well in sync with the trailer (especially Burton's "What the hell does that mean?" comment. You'll see what I mean.)
