I think the leaked trailer from Comic Con had a scene with her having a huge stomach like a "birthing" scene.

We've been missing so much the past 30 years. Scott needs to just make Sci-fi movies or have a couple of proteges like other directors/producers sometimes do. He is a master of this genre.

Eh. The more I think about this the more I don't like the idea of it. I don't like that they're scientists seeking out whatever it is they're seeking out, in contrast to Alien in which they're just blue collar schmoes will end up getting royally fucked. I don't like that the characters are educated individuals and that the theme of the movie will seemingly be, "Man's quest for knowledge will be his downfall." That's some end of BSG-level shit right there.

Quoting this again..sorry.

I think this is either one of two things:

A false scare and reference to the old Alien films. The thing is literally a squid that is suspended over the sleeping person. The person in the sleep chamber wakes up to find a tentacle swiping at their face in a way that is clearly evocative of the facehugger's in the original alien. Person fully wakes up, starts freaking out, ink prays everywhere and everyone has a good laugh.

OR

Either an actual creature attacking or a stand-in for a CG creature that will be in the full movie. The black inky substance is a MPAA color swap for blood in the scene

If you're referring to me, what I said has just been conjecture for a long time now. I've stayed away from anything resembling a script leak. The dude is standing next to a Jockey chair and seems to fit it, so it sort of begs the question.

Well, my thought would be when you are a ship carrying numerous containers of alien/xenomorph eggs (or something similar - that's what I think that room with the big head contained) and you plan on delivering them/dropping them onto planet earth it is a pretty big threat...no?

This is exactly why I like it. It isn't merely a remake of Alien. I own that movie.

Anyone else read the description at the YouTube link?

In the distant future, two superpowers control Earth and fight each other for all the solar system's natural resources. When one side dispatches a team to a distant planet to terraform it for human colonization, the team discovers an indigenous race of bio-mechanoid killers.

Ridley Scott, director of 'Alien' and 'Blade Runner,' returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on 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.


First part is new to me.

Basically, some sort of weapon that prevents intelligent species from becoming too advanced, without having to keep tabs on them 24/7. This fits with the Prometheus myth, who gave the forbidden fire to mankind and was punished by being tied to a mountain where a bird (logo seen in the trailer, and original alien concept had wings) would forever eat his self-regenerating liver (symbolizing life forms constantly being reduced back to primitive forms when they "heal").

i think that's pretty much what's the story about, and the last scene with the alien ship dropping probably implies that the prometheus crew prevented that from happening

hmm maybe it was the way the trailer was cut, I thought they were talking about the place they're in is an actual life form, and the place was moving and changing.
