Yeah, totally not an Alien prequel at all, no sir. That's the ticket. Just ask my wife, Morgan Fairchild!

I think this thread is gonna be alot more entertaining than the movie. I'm out. To be honest, when I founs out it was the Lost guy writting it, I lost interest right away - friggin' 2001 rip off. I really hate Bad Robot and those Lost freaks.
I don't know how anybody possibly takes you seriously.

Re: Prometheus: Ridley Scott returns to Sci-Fi

This looks so epic... Even if the script is a total failure, this will be worth it for the visuals alone.

My favorite scenes from the trailer: (I hope they show)





And of course...

Best trailer I have seen in quite some time. More excited about this than any other film. So many questions...

I still believe "Prometheus" will deal with it's own issues but set in the "Alien" universe.

There will be a space jockey

There will be a derelict

Apparently they filmed a PG-13 and R rated version of that scene

I'm not sure why... It will be released with an R rating (99% sure). Perhaps with future TV broadcast in mind?

I just realized that this film is *shot in 3D* as well. OMG.

It's PG-13 but Ridley and Tom Rothman will decide which version they will ultimately go with (PG-13 or R)

A few minutes later, Lindelof wrapped up the Hall H panel by asking, “Just to clarify, Ridley, there are naked push-ups in this film, right?”
“Very naked push-ups,” Scott replied.

This site has a pretty good breakdown, with lots of details I never noticed.

Awesome analysis. Thank you for sharing this link.

Quite right. Just imagine the "public outrage" if they did advertise it as a Alien prequel and it didn't feature any xenomorphs.
While I absolutely 100% agree with this, I can see how people are getting confused. The marketing so far has been about as subtle as a sledgehammer when it comes to highlighting the 'Alien' links. The trailer even has what sounds just like that same weird screech that was all over the original 'Alien' trailers.
While that's certainly true, how many people out of the general public is going to recognize the connection to the original Alien trailer? Many of them weren't alive then and won't look back at the trailer.

At least they're letting the title stand on its own and not making it into something that sounds really stupid in an attempt to tie it in like:

The Alien Saga: Prometheus
Alien Origins: Prometheus
Prometheus: The First Alien
Indeed. I really like the idea of it being able to stand on its own and really having nothing to do with the Alien movies other than the setting.
Thank the gods. X-Men Origins: Wolverine was bad enough.

I don't know why, but I'm kinda getting an Event Horizon feel from some of this. As if whatever the crew encounters somehow makes them go mad and turn against each other.

If that's the case, I hope Ridley handles it a lot better than that movie did.
I'm reminded, as was the trailer analysis linked above, of Sunshine, but I agree with you that I hope Ridley handles this film better than either of those movies.

Awesome. I think I actually had a fangasm when I saw the ship. Roll on 2012.

Which occurs before Alien. With the race that created the aliens. Hinting at what is to come in the Alien movies.

How the heck is it not a prequel? You don't have to have the same characters for it to be a prequel; that's just one type of prequel. It's like trying to say that Enterprise wasn't a prequel for Star Trek, or Caprica for Battlestar Galactica.

Let's hope it has a better beginning, middle and end.
