Re: The latest "Alien" prequel rumours - Scott directing, in 3-D?

Kinda sounds like the characters go on some long journey that ends with a big reveal of the Space Jockey (much like starchild at the end of 2001), and that somehow he figures into all these deeper questions the movie is asking.

In any case, I'm hoping that the xenomorphs don't factor very heavily into the story, and that it doesn't turn into the usual thing of the crew getting wiped out one by one at the end.

Scott said he's filming both R and PG-13 versions of certain scenes. He'll push the studio to release the R, but something tells me won't be seeing that until the inevitable "Unedited Director's Cut" on Blu-ray.

The movie cost an insane amount of money to make, so the studio will clearly want it to be PG13.

I'm still afraid this movie will bomb big, so whatever makes it a better movie and makes more money I'll be happy with.

Definitely some prettier actors and slicker costumes than in the first Alien. But then I guess these aren't the same blue-collar, coal miner types we saw before either.

To me the real key is whether Scott can recapture the same incredible atmosphere the first movie had. Hopefully he doesn't try to go for a more modern, faster-paced kind of thing, with a bunch of unnecessary music and action.

I'm certainly intrigued by what i've heard and seen so far. Although am i the only one who thought "Incoming message from the Big Giant Head!" when they saw those promo pictures?

For a second, I thought it was Sharon Stone.

Not really getting why (presumably) the space-jockey aliens would carve such an artefact. I guess all will be revealed on release (or leaked shortly beforehand). If the SJAs created the xenomorph aliens to serve as a biological weapon, what was their intention when they tinkered with man's biology to increase his intelligence? Were they also responsible for meddling with the predators' evolution as evinced by the two variants that we saw in the last movie?

They all looked the same in the last movie.

I seem to recall there was a smallish "dog" version that was being held captive by several larger "wolf" versions.
