If it's crap ... We'll tell you
So Ridley Scott has confirmed that the Xenomorphs will not be making an appearance in Prometheus; however, what if what we're going to see is a sort of evolutionary beginning for them? From the various glimpses we've gotten of certain creatures such as the cobra-like alien that attacked the one scientist, to the little wiggling thing in the eye of one character, I've seen things that reminded me of Alien and I started to wonder if perhaps what Scott was doing was a type of origin story? Thoughts?
It has to be a prequel, they showed the Space Jockey and there's a scene were a guy's face is changing into something more alien like. I'll just wait for the movie to see if I'm right or wrong.
It's not the same space jockey as seen in Alien. It's not the same ship as seen in Alien and Aliens. It is the same company(Weyland industries which combines at some point with yutani corp) as seen all the way through avp I think, it is the same universe and specifically the same star system zeta reticuli 2 as seen in Alien and Aliens. The story of the film however focuses on who the space jockey is and how that species impacted human development or orginal conception. From reviews i've read if you go in expecting all the questions that the Alien movie and series posed you're not going to enjoy it that being said there are parallels and easter eggs if you will for Alien.
Because i'm too curious for my own good i've read spoilers from people who've seen the movie(french and uk press screenings) and if you would like I could give you a few specifics but I don't want to ruin anything.
Oh and this is in the Prometheus soundtrack. ;P
"I felt Prometheus. It’s not another version of Alien or Aliens or Alien 3.
I guess this is why Scott was so serious about this not being
positioned as a prequel. In many ways, this is closer spiritually, in
Scott’s filmmography, to 1492 or Gladiator or the director’s cut of Kingdom of Heaven than to Alien.
Seemingly earned arrogance is broken down, the hero gains insight into
how their world was prioritized, they struggle on. Many different
perspectives are represented on that ship without the crew sitting
around a table arguing their views. And personally, I prefer that."
I expect some critics to be very hard on the film. They seem to expect the Second Coming. But while they may have found The Avengers or whatever easier to swallow, there are things in Prometheus that will sustain audiences, not just offer that sugar high. (Hulk SMASH!) And when the questions about what isn’t in Prometheus are given voice, I will ask the question without irony, “Are you sure that what you think you want would satisfy you or make for a better movie?” I can’t say that I know the true answer to that question. But I am pretty sure that no one else will really know that answer about this film in the first hours after walking out of the theater.
Not only is Prometheus the best film of the summer so far, but I don’t anticipate anything but The Dark Knight Rises being able to challenge it for quality before the end of this summer. I’m really looking forward to the sheer joys of Brave and The Amazing Spider-Man and Ted, and others. But amongst movies that work for thrill-seekers and people who want to think and audiences that just want to be entertained, Prometheus hits to all fields. If you love movies, Prometheus has to be a part of your vocabulary this summer and for years to come.
