How slightly is slightly, because I can't tell the difference at all?

^ Well, there's no "Prometheus" font slowly appearing in the foreground.

Hmmm, any idea what it was standing in for?

Nice, although that one seems more fitting to a Blade Runner prequel than an Alien one.

Re: Prometheus: Ridley Scott returns to Sci-Fi

Why can't they make Blade Runner and Alien take place in the same universe. Two different creators and properties? They already tied Aliens into Predator which doesn't make much sense. Obviously they are time travellors.

The AVP movies aren't really considered canon to the serious Alien or Predator movies.

It's a little more complicated than that.

Fox considers AVP a separate franchise from Alien and Predator. They are seen and treated as three distinct franchises, despite the overlap between them.

It's not complicated. Alien and Predator are genre defining movies. AvP is shit.

Re: Prometheus: Ridley Scott returns to Sci-Fi

AVP was bearable, AVPII is one of the only reasonably budgetted sci-fi movies I have turned off half way through. It was just two guys in rubber suits wrestling each other, and in the dark so you couldn't see it was just two guys in rubber suits wrestling each other.

I always thought that AvP should not have had humans or dialogue in it at all. Predators invading the alien homeworld and getting more than they bargained for, that could have been an ace movie.

Without a human or a more anthropomorphic protagonist to identify with, I doubt that most punters would pay to see a near 2-hour CGI slasher movie. An entrée spectacle of beast versus beast action might have worked in the Roman amphitheatre, but even they preferred their fights to include human participants.
