Hmm, I know it's heavily edited, but at the moment it kinda feels more like an Avatar sequel than something from the quiet and eerie Alien universe.
Hopefully the actual movie will be a bit slower and more atmospheric...
Quiet and errie as in "Aliens" with it's fire fights?
Yeah but that movie still did a great job establishing up front that this was the same eerie, atmospheric planet as before. Which is why everything that came after was so damn effective.
Plus, being that this is Ridley I was naturally hoping for a tone closer to the first movie anyway.
Ridley Scott and Damon Lindelof have said that they're adhering to the continuity of Aliens
, in which it was established that the planet shown in Alien
was LV-426. I believe the planet in Prometheus
has already been designated LV-423. The derelict from Alien is not
the same ship as the one in Prometheus
