I was under the impression they already were thanks to Weyland Yutani.

It's logo is all over the place in Blade Runner apparently. I've never bothered to check for myself however.

It can't be Weyland-Yutani though, as that name didn't exist until 1986. There was no 'D' in it originally. I'll have to keep a sharp eye next time I watch BR for the WY wings (logo) as I've never noticed them before.

Also, the Spinner take-off uses footage on a monitor that comes from the Nostromo separation sequence, so there's that tenuous link too.

That's not the only thing.

Daneel, as the thread creator, would you object to me changing the title of this thread to "Prometheus: Ridley Scott Returns to Sci-Fi?"

Which in turn shows up in the Serenity Valley flashback fight scenes in Firefly (its logo shows up on some of the weapons used). And Edward James Olmos has said that nuBSG takes place in the Blade Runner universe.

Make of that what you will.

I do think P and Blade Runner are connected, I hope so.

if Fassbender is an android in Prometheus maybe he can show up in the upcoming Blade Runner project.

The trailer used "it's" in place of the possessive "its" in that last quote. C'mon people, you're supposed to be professionals. (I know it's a petty thing to be concerned about, but the trailer was too blurry to gripe about anything else. )

So at the very least they are doing this similar to Alien's trailer.

And what does "Skip Film" mean? I see it popping up frequently in there. Is it just some sort of work-in-progress thing? I'll assume they aren't actually telling us to skip the film.

The trailer seemingly is pretty cool but in that stolen video thing, all I could think of was "WTF am I watching??"

Hard to make out much, but that did look pretty awesome. Actually made this universe seem truly dark and scary again, which I didn't think was possible. And despite what Ridley's been saying, it looks like the xenomorphs are all OVER this movie.

Or at least some kind of similar, alien-style threat.
