[QUOTE=Mr. Scorpio;30825831]yessss H R Giger on patrol gonna take ass and kick names[/QUOTE] Yeah I was worried about Giger being dropped since it looked for awhile like this wasn't gonna be an Alien film anymore, and who knew what other changes might have been coming, but considering Page mentions making Giger proud I guess he's still in. Good shit. [editline]1st July 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=Robbobin;30828854]Doesn't Predator 2 have an alien's skull in it somewhere? [editline]1st July 2011[/editline] yeah I'm right[/QUOTE] Yea, they probably just did that as a tribute/joke. Alien, predator, and alien vs predator are three separate things are far as I'm concerned. Better off that way.
The Stan Winston crew just thought that it was a good decision because of the AVP comics.
Oh dear god, the creature designer worked on Green Lantern. We're all gonna die.
I really want Vangelis to score this film, it would make for an another awesome soundtrack.
[QUOTE=broodroos;30845851]Oh dear god, the creature designer worked on Green Lantern. We're all gonna die.[/QUOTE] Designer ruins movie? You're an imbecile.
[QUOTE=postal;30820489] Interview with writer David Lindelof on the film's connection to Alien: wall of text [url=http://www.filmofilia.com/2011/06/29/writer-damon-lindelof-explains-alien-connection-to-prometheus/][/url] [/QUOTE] I really trust Lindelof on this, after reading the interview seems like he knows what he's doing, I have high hopes for this.
So 100% confirmed no Xenomorphs in this movie? :c
[QUOTE=broodroos;30845851]Oh dear god, the creature designer worked on Green Lantern. We're all gonna die.[/QUOTE] Yep the creature designer killed that one Wasn't the poor acting or the awful story or the shit writing Stop being dumb [editline]5th July 2011[/editline] If this movie does any shout-outs to alien I hope it's subtle Subtle throwbacks are the best throwbacks
Click quick before the pics get taken down [url]http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/article/couple-giger-inspired-prometheus-set-pics[/url] Some set pics.
i still want that alien prequel, though. why not have both?
FUCK YES H R Giger up in this mother fucker
[QUOTE=Pops;30928652]i still want that alien prequel, though. [B]why not have both?[/B][/QUOTE] It seems like they are since Ridley said a few days back this movie does still revolve around the space jockey, despite claiming this had become more than a prequel to alien. [url]http://www.alienprequelnews.com/2011/06/ridley-scott-confirms-prometheus-is.html[/url] "Scott acknowledged that Prometheus, while not a direct prequel to Alien, occupies the same general universe, saying the picture was inspired by a desire to explore the mystery of the "space jockey" the giant fossilized creature with the burst-open chest seen in the first Alien movie but never explained." [editline]5th July 2011[/editline] Then again that article did only say "inspired by" so maybe not, i don't know aaaaaaaaa
I hope it has something to do with space jockeys even if there won't be any Aliens in it That would be hells of sweet
[QUOTE=ifauxv2;30927333]So 100% confirmed no Xenomorphs in this movie? :c[/QUOTE] They haven't confirmed or uncomfirmed anything other than cast and leaked some set shots from the new derelict.
Those pics got taken down fast man. Also I'm dumb.
So apparently footage was just shown at Comic-Con. Facehugger eggs and Michael Fassbender.
[img]http://filesmelt.com/dl/Prothemusoeusezeus.jpg[/img] Well would you look at that. Apparently a leak is floating around here somwhere
Is that from the clip/teaser they showed? Is there a link to it somewhere?
[QUOTE=Carne;31257325]Is that from the clip/teaser they showed? Is there a link to it somewhere?[/QUOTE] No, thats an official still released an hour or two ago, maybe about the same time the clip was on at comic con. Picture from the comic-con floor: [img]http://filesmelt.com/dl/prothhththht.jpg[/img] Certainly has an alien vibe to the suit.
Looks like Noomi Rapace.
[QUOTE=Carne;31257432]Looks like Noomi Rapace.[/QUOTE] Yeah, I forgot to mention that, too. It is, infact, Noomi Rapace inside that there suit. Secondly, should I keep posting my findings?
Yes, please do!
[quote=Rob Keyes]There's DNA of Alien but the rest of it is new. The footage is VERY similar to the style and aesthetic of Aliens. Fassbender looks great as an android.[/quote] Fassbender is an android! Sorry if this is old.
[QUOTE=MajorMattem;31257504]Secondly, should I keep posting my findings?[/QUOTE] I you could be so kind. I hope the movie wont contain two different kinds of monsters fighting each other. It never ends up any good.
Hey, did somebody miss out on those set pictures? might not be here forever, but here they are. [b]THEY MIGHT BE RELATED TO PROMETHEUS'S ENDING AND PLOT POINTS. IF YOU DONT WANT TO SEE THEM SCROLL DOWN VERY FAST ONCE YOU FINISH READING THIS.[/b] [url]http://www.prometheus-movie.com/uploads/prometheus_set4.jpg[/url] [url]http://www.prometheus-movie.com/uploads/prometheus_set3.jpg[/url] [url]http://www.prometheus-movie.com/uploads/set_pic_1.jpg[/url] [b]END.[/b] More from comic-con! [quote]And then the actual footage from the film starts, and its a huge flood of creeptastic imagery that recalls Alien but also a bit of 2001: A Space Odyssey. There are guys in pressure suits exploring an ancient chamber with weird hieroglyphs, and a guy in a spacesuit walking through a sliding door into a clean white chamber. And a guy (who might be Michael Fassbender) pulling a weird jelly-looking thing out of a canister. And as Ridley Scott's voiceover notes that things that may look small in the film will turn out to be important, there is a shot of a drop of blood on a finger. There is Charlize Theron on a table with bandages wrapped around her breasts, as though she's waking from hypersleep. And then the footage gets faster and more furious, with a guy in a visor looking down at something, a woman in a suit walking into a red entryway, and a globe, and then Scott says, "The cast find an establishment which is not what they expected it to be, it's a civilization but what we find in it is very uncivilized behavior." And then there is insane carnage and people with goop inside their space helmets and someone shooting a flamethrower, and mayhem breaking loose in confined spaces. Meanwhile, Scott's voiceover is saying that there will be biomechanoids and the film will "break new ground." We see a giant pale planet with rings around it. And then we see Charlize Theron doing pushups naked. Ridley Scott proises that there will be creatures that are "biomechanoid" which will be unique and "break new ground." Says Scott in the video, "There is a DNA of the original Alien, [but] that's as far as it goes, everything else is completely different. It's all about everything." And now the people in the footage are crying and screaming and freaking out and the video is flickering like an interrupted signal. And Scott concludes, "Of course, what i want to do is scare the living shit out of you." Damon Lindelof, who was moderating the panel, talked about getting the call from Ridley Scott asking him to work on this movie, and the long process of the two of them sitting across the table from each other hashing out this movie. At first, the "$64,000 question" was whether this was an Alien prequel, but eventually they moved past that. Theron came out on stage and talked about how the script had seemed really rough when she first came on board, and she worked with Scott and Lindelof to improve it. Theron plays Meredith Vickers in the film, and she described her character: She's very different from anything I've done. She's a suit, essentially. She's kind of the machine that runs the machine, that takes this mission into space. At first, she comes across like a suit, very cold and frigid, it seems that it's all about the economics for her — she doesn't really come from one side or the other, she's not a scientist or a believer. She runs a tight ship. But you can tell that she's going to be a problem. And then later... We had all kind of layered her and given her [hidden depths]. You think you know who she is [but she's an enigma]. Ridley started doing this interesting thing, where he would have me stand in corners and lurk all the time, and it wound up being really mysterious. In the third act, you really kind of strip her from her skin and see what her bones are about, and what she's really doing there. And then we were patched into Ridley Scott via live video feed — Scott is in Iceland, near a waterfall, where he's just been doing the final bit of filming for a sequence at the start of the movie. Scott explained why he stayed away from science fiction for 25 years: I was actually too busy doing other movies and exploring other genres, so frankly I never actually thought about science fiction until I realized there was something in the first Alien movie that nobody had ever asked the question about ... and I thought that could be the centerpiece of what we've just completed. That said, that is the only DNA loosely applied to the original Alien. We've gone in a different directions, but in the last few minutes of this movie you'll see what I'm talking about. And Scott hinted that "there may be two robots in Prometheus," not just the one android who's rumored to be in the film. He added: "I think robots and androids and Replicants have become so much part of the actual science fiction scenario and landscape, that they're no longer unique. [So] you've got to come up with those unique notions that make something fresh."[/quote]
[QUOTE=MajorMattem;31257826]Fassbender is an android! Sorry if this is old.[/QUOTE] Hopefully he doesn't go all Ash on us.
Awesome, you can tell Giger's been stirring up shit already, just look at those wacky walls.
Well, im tired and my laptop battery is running dry. Sorry I cant keep up my news gathering but i'll mop up the rest tommorow. Goodnight, and good hunting, gents.
Uh if you think a picture spoils something, then don't image tag it. People want to see it, they can just click it. Thanks
