Post your comments on this article




cooler_kin1981 -> Photo 8 (19/3/2012 1:33:16 PM)

"Interestingly, these sections were shot in Iceland" - except that shot wasn't.

It was shot in Scotland. The Old Man of Storr on the Isle of Skye, to be precise: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:OM_Storr_2004.jpg

Otherwise, nice breakdown.




LRigby -> Alien worm thingy... (19/3/2012 1:37:49 PM)

On page 47 in the medical pod.. there's some weird worm thing at the top of the pod! Coool...




MrChristopher -> RE: Alien worm thingy... (19/3/2012 1:41:56 PM)

There's definitely some sort of Chestburster looking thing on Pic #47 You can see it better if you frame by frame the trailer.
Also; in #44 they appear to be trying to burn someone who's on the ground. You can see the helmet.




mclane1 -> scene 42 (19/3/2012 4:27:45 PM)

i thinks thats fassbender mutated




Scruffybobby -> International trailer? (19/3/2012 7:12:41 PM)

Nice breakdown. Any chance of doing one for the international trailer? Or maybe just adding a few choice bits from that one to this? Or is that just overkill?




target -> RE: International trailer? (19/3/2012 7:33:27 PM)

I really fancy Noomi Rapace in this. The sweatier the better.




bieseemil -> Shat? (19/3/2012 7:44:41 PM)

"The Shat will not be appearing in this motion picture". I do hope you mean the Stath, not the SHAT...




Barry -> The UK trailer - possible HUGE spoiler! You have been warned. (19/3/2012 10:53:16 PM)

Check out 1.50 in the UK trailer...

They're doing a medical procedure on the spacejockey helmet/decapitated head.




dee123 -> Number 17 (20/3/2012 12:04:15 AM)

Is a reference to 3rd rock from the sun? right?




edge1710 -> (20/3/2012 9:00:47 AM)

If I remember right the space jockey from alien was huge. To big to go through a door in the Prometheus. Maybe they have there own version of oempa loempa’s




pottyaboutpotter1 -> Xeno's very likely (20/3/2012 10:16:11 AM)

At first I thought that the chances of any Xenomorph's in Prometheus were slim. Now I'm much more more confident there will be. If you notice on one of the shots of the medical bed on the person's face it looks like a facehugger. Also "Cut it off! Cut it off!" could refer to a facehugger. If The Space Jockey's have manufactured the Xenomorphs as biological weapons then maybe the Xeno's appear but not in the way we remember. Maybe the Jockeys unleash some sort of early prototype on the crew and the film ends with the Jockeys perfecting the Xeno's and then someone setting of the beacon from Alien and unleashing the now perfected Xeno's on the jockeys. It makes sense and could easily fit. Oh June where are you?




jacketspuds -> Questions... (20/3/2012 11:03:30 AM)

Ok, so in Alien doesn't the Space Jockey have a "chestburster" style hole in his mid-section? If it is where is the Alien that came out of there and what the hell would it look like? The Alien 3 Xenomorph was more dog-like so the one out of a Space Jockey would be very strange. My guess is that the Aliens are very much in this.




Bobby TwoTimes -> Average (20/3/2012 11:04:31 AM)

I expect this to be seated firmly in the 3 Stars section when it comes out.

Ridley hasn't made a true classic for 12yrs now (Gladiator) and I don't feel this will be any different to all the other mid-of-the-road fodder (Body Of Lies, Kingdom Of Heaven, American Gangster, Robin Hood) that he's been churning out for the past decade.

This film is getting hyped up waaaaaay too much and it'll be good.....but not great. 'Aliens' will still be the best Xenomorph film when all this is done, with I expect, 'Alien' still being a close second. This won't surpass either film.




hugomon -> Technology doesn't match (20/3/2012 11:40:23 AM)

Though the trailer is superb and the film seems to be much more alien-related than uncle Rid previously admitted, I don't like the fact than the techs of this prequel are far more advanced than in Alien. I mean, control pannels, displays and so on, based on touch screems from the Prometheus do not match with the click-clak key pannels from Nostromo, and the same goes for the space suits. If Alien is cronologically after Prometheus, this techs should be more retro.




cawykes -> Brain hurts (20/3/2012 12:30:22 PM)

A lot of people complain that trailers show spoilers...only if you have some idea what the film is about, for example we know Bane breaks Batman's back and we see Bruce Wayne with a walking stick and put two and two together, but we have no idea about what happens in this story and Ridley Scott is clever enough to show is things to get us thinking. It obvious that no-one gets off the planet alive, so I am assuming the first shots are actually the ending of the film and are of someone turning into the aliens we know and love, my money is on Noomi's character (as Fassbender's character isn't human) and something tells me he's not the only milky white blooded person there...

You have sort of contradicted yourself there by claiming that trailers show spoilers but only if you know what the film is about...then go onto make a lot of presumptions about this film and reveal a rather potentially whopping spoiler about a film that is completely unrelated to this movie???!!!

If you are going to reveal stuff about another film, at least have the decency to stick a spoiler warning on your post; if its just pure speculation - which it is - then say so as well. [:@]




criffle -> Excited but worried (20/3/2012 2:38:19 PM)

This looks good so far, but I'm worried it will just turn out to be a over hyped average space thriller from a director way past his prime. One of the reasons why Alien is such a beautiful and twisted film, is that it never explains the world it's set in. The massive spooky derelict ship, with it's endless caverns of eggs, and the mysterious and creepy space jockey , were all so incredibly effective because they weren't explained, they were just there. The film looks to explain the derelict ship and space jockey, and I fear that it will take away the effectiveness of Alien. It will have to be a really great film if it enhances Alien rather than takes away from it. I also hope Ridley Scott doesn't have the film's threat constantly in your face. What made Alien so scary was that you rarely saw the Alien, only just glimpses of it, and that made it much more terrifying.




johnnyrox -> Hmm (20/3/2012 7:53:08 PM)

Didn't know Iceland owned the Isle of Skye. When did that happen?




fantastic mr ethan -> The One film I'm most looking forward to this year (20/3/2012 7:54:54 PM)

This is gunna be great! I do like these trailer break downs but sometimes they do just read as descriptions for the blind, rather than interesting ideas and possibilities for the actual film, but this one was good.




indysgill -> (20/3/2012 8:12:14 PM)

Has anyone else noticed the vague Alien head on the lower left of photo #10?

Oh yeah.




mateyboy2 -> the eggs - shot 42 (21/3/2012 9:06:03 AM)

don't know if anyone else has commented but there's egg shapes on the right - teenie weenie ones - micro aliens perhaps - "Big things have small beginnings"

Also the Guy Pearce role is being underplayed, so he must have a John Hurt "Contact" type role - "A King's reign comes to an end, it is inevitable" -

cawykes -> RE: Brain hurts (21/3/2012 10:27:05 AM)

Dear waltham1979 - What do you think forums are for exactly? Are we just supposed to come on here and go "umm, yes the trailer looks good" I am perfectly entitled to speculate what I think may happen in a film as I haven't seen it, so how the cocker-doody am I spoiling something that none of us know will happen? As for the Batman comment, any self respecting fan of Batman will know the history of the Bane character and what he does in the comics, so hardly spoiling that, again I'm speculating. If the films were on general release and I gave a scene by scene account of what happens, then by all means complain.




BabsyBuck -> RE: Prometheus Trailer #2 Breakdown (21/3/2012 7:57:24 PM)

I'm just so overwhelmed! I think that there are some spoilers here, but to be honest we can't say it gives anything away because we haven't actually seen the movie! (It always works out like this - we get snippets and assume the ultimate best or ultimate worst and then freak out either way.)

Personally, this is second in my most anticipated movies of (pretty much) all time.
I'd like to thank my dad for letting me watch the alien series at a young age haha! I've been waiting such a long time to see who this Space Jockey is, and whilst I agree with the idea of Alien being so successful because it was full of secrets and 'hmmm's', you just gotta PRAISE RIDLEY for actually doing this. I thought he never would.


Sorry for rambling.

also. that THING on p. 45 gives me the chills every time. EVERY-TIME!

PRAYING FOR AN 18 CERTIFICATE RATING!

[sm=schild15.gif]

I have no desire to get into a tit-tat debate on what forum's are for; all I ask is that when it comes to reveal potential spoilers about a film that is unrelated to this one; that you simply add a spoiler alert. As you said 'any self-respecting fan of Batman' will know the history of Bane; but believe it or not this whole forum is not filled with Batman fans who know the history of the character.

My brother for example is on this forum, in this very discussion thread and has avoided every thing to do with the new Batman film - why would it be brought up in a Prometheus thread - and knows nothing of Bane. Now he does with your spoiler.

I know im starting to sound like a miserable shit but you get my point.

If you re-read my post you will notice I wasn't criticising you for speculating about the film; merely pointing out that you were critical of others for claming that the trailer is full of spoilers and then openly discuss potential spoilers in your post.

Personally I believe people will get off the planet; in one form or another. In my head I have that the Aliens/Xenomorphs are just us with altered DNA which I think you touched on in your post.

My only concern for this film is that its going to turn into Misson To Mars and be openly pretencious...*shudders*

Now come over here and gimme a hug [:)]




cawykes -> Slapped wrist! (22/3/2012 2:21:19 PM)

Well that's me told! It still looks amazing and I can't wait. One more thing, if you're thinking of seeing Titanic 3D...it sinksl...ooops, spoilt that for you now haven't I :)

Yea that's the same...*claps slowly* [sm=893banghead-thumb.gif]

Anyway stepping away from 'Forum Posting for the Village Idiot'; wasn't this going to be the start of a couple of films? Did I read somewhere that this was going to be the start of a couple of films to start up the franchise again?

I'd suggest stowing the sarcasm away on the sinking ship - spoiler rules are taken seriously on this board. You do not refer to detail from source material when discussing a future film as this is effectively a spoiler and not all Batman film fans give a toss about the comics (if, eg, you tried it in the Game of Thrones thread you'd be teetering on a ban for trolling).

In addition, this is not a thread about Batman - it is unfair to discuss it in here anyway without appropriate spoiler signposting - either use inivisotext code, light text and also clearly signpost it as a spoiler up front.
