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

Since i have no self control when it comes to spoiling films, i read the supposed plot summary for Prometheus that've been lurking around.

If its accurate then i'm pretty impressed. The main plot is interesting enough by itself and the links to the Alien franchise pretty much answer every loose end generated by the first film.

I guess it was too good to be true. Shame really, some of the ideas in the Possibly Fake summary were quite good.

Re: Prometheus: Ridley Scott returns to Sci-Fi

Taking a look at those high-res pictures, this movie really does look cool. I think I'm actually interested, possibly even excited to see this movie.

Re: Prometheus: Ridley Scott returns to Sci-Fi

I've been avoiding all these synopsis and plot releases, whether they be real or fake, trying to go into it as open as possible. I already have 20 years of my own hypotheticals, you know.

The leaked trailer is indeed so tantalizing and yet full of crap. You can hardly see anything, the grammar errors. Hopefully we will get the real thing soon, please, please!

Back to Blade Runner for a moment. Why would MF's hair need to be died that horrible bleach blonde unless it was to akin him to the Batty series of Replicants? They worked on ships and mining in the outer worlds, which shoulds like Prometheus is going to have some ship out in the middle of nowhere snooping around LV-426. Why can't he be one of them?

Although, they are making no secret he is an android, which sort of reduces the odds he's going to be the surprise evil synthetic. My only other theory would be that Theron is also a robot, the surprise bad one, and MF's hair is blonde to match hers.

So many possibilities! I really hope Scott did right here. And oh, before I forget re Weylan Yutani, don't they also make an appearance in Soldier, which was akinned to at least being in the same universe as Blade Runner?

Actually, the movie Soldier had references to Blade Runner and several other movies. Here's a brief synopsis.

Ugh Soldier. That was a bad movie.

Here is a very interesting interview with Scott which shows the direction the story is heading it. http://filmophilia.com/2011/12/17/in...riginal-alien/

No Xenomorph he says because it's at Disneyland. How the fu*k did we get to that point?

Re: Prometheus: Ridley Scott returns to Sci-Fi

"Solider" is a guilty pleasure film of mine. It has flaws no question but I like it...the score is pretty good IIRC as well. I wonder what happened to the teaser trailer released. It was supposed to come out a couple of weeks ago but I guess the studio decided to pull it after it was leaked and will release it at a later date.

Cool interview. And yeah, it's sad the way his iconic Xenomorph has been watered down over the years. I DO think he's probably the one guy who could have made them seem truly terrifying again, but I completely understand him wanting to do something different.

And this movie already sounds about a thousand times more interesting and inventive than any of the sequels or spinoffs. Seriously, all those other directors could think of do to was have the aliens chase Ripley around some more? Or have them be hunted by Predators??

I like it much better now that he put that spin on it and compartmentalized the aliens somewhat. This could be the start of a new franchise because of that, if he cleans it up a little. Higher beings should clean it up alot. There's alot of potential in the premise of a crazy theory being put out there about the gods and it could have plenty of follow up material as well which is always a good thing, as it breaches a new area of sci-fi that is full of fundemantal questions since aliens are really just another branch of the supernatural, paranormal and occult anyway. So there is overlap with real science and sci-fi of course.

Wow, looks like Ridley has recaptured the creepy haunted house vibe of the first movie almost perfectly.

Awesome. I can't wait to see the full trailer. I'm a huge Ridley Scott fan and I'm really looking forward to his return to the sci-fi genre.

A trailer for a trailer? That's a new one on me. Looks interesting though.

I don't even care if it's connected with the original films or not; I'll watch anything directed by Ridley Scott...except Legend.
