Re: Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" (AKA Alien Prequel/Spinoff)

As far off topic as this is, do yourself the hugest favor and just go ahead and marathon the entirety of Mel Brooks' filmography.

I've already seen Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein. :D

I wonder if one will be on Noomi's side, and one on the Company's. hmmm

I'm thinking this will be the case, with David as the android on Noomi's side and the other android on the Company's side. ;)

xD Rick Morranis is ridiculous in it.

I can imagine so. xD

Yeah he was! He was my favorite part of it. :3 Awesome dad.

Yep. :D

Yay David being a good guy. <3


Would... Noomi be working for the Company like Ripley was, ultimately realizing they're wrong?

Probably, though she'd probably be higher up in the ranks than Ripley. Apparently the main cast of the movie are all scientists. :)

EDIT: Images of the Comic-Con footage have been leaked~

That'll be so interesting, compared to Ripley's "fucking kill it" attitude. There may be actual scientific discussion. :D

OH MANNNNN. LOOK AT IT ALL.

Yep. Though I imagine there will be plenty of "just kill the fucking thing(s)" from the cast in Prometheus once the blood starts to fall~ ;)

I think they've already finished shooting. :)

Totally, but things might be explained more. Which would be nice~

True. :D And actually some folks at other sites seem to be thinking David might be a replicant like in Blade Runner, so maybe the scientists are working for a different company than "Mother"? :D

It probably is the Company though~ ;)


Still... we gotta wait for a year now for the thing to come out. ;_;

Re: Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" (AKA Alien Prequel/Spinoff)

Yeah that one comic con interview you posted, Ridley Scott said they were filming the last scene (which will be the fist scene in the movie). So by now they should be done filming, but that still leaves alot of post-production work to be done.

But I love those screen caps. Scott has such an eye for color when it comes to sifi. He's one of the only people that creates a believable future.

Oh sweet jesus, Blade Runner. xD That's pretty interesting.

I know. ;__; But it'll be just like waiting for the Hobbit... soon but not soon enough.

He really does. Scott never over exaggerates what the future could be like, he simply depicts realistic yet totally surreal surroundings. I mean, Alien seemed pretty plausible... the technology/weaponry/etc.

Indeed. I dunno if it'll be happening though. xD

And The Dark Knight Rises, The Amazing Spider-Man and Avengers... if 2012 IS the end of the world, at least it went out on a high note for films. ;_;

Agreed. The only time I ever thought Scott was off with his vision of the future was in Blade Runner. I could see a world like that existing, but I think his timing was too soon. ;)

OMG. o_o The trailer for Prometheus was leaked recently, and I just managed to watch it this morning. Here's the video on YouTube, so anyone wanting to see this, watch it before it's taken down. xD

Can I just say "EPIC"?! o_o Seriously, this looks amazing. <3

Re: Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" (AKA Alien Prequel/Spinoff)

Can't watch it right now. :( (at work actually).
Haven't followed up on it in a while, is it still connected to the Alien universe, or is it compeletely separate?

It's always been set in the Alien universe. The question hanging in the air is whether or not we can refer to it as an Alien prequel or not. Most of the people involved don't seem to be wanting to refer it as that, but everyone's admitted that it has some details connecting it to Alien.

Here's what the CEO of FOX Entertainment, Tim Rothman, recently said about the film and whether or not it's an Alien prequel.

“I suppose if you want to definitionally be that literal, but it does it a great disservice. I will tell you, here’s the way to think about it. If you looked at the whole movie, 95 percent of it is entirely unto itself. Ridley said it right: If you’re a fan and you look closely, you’ll spot strands of DNA.”

In all honesty, Prometheus is coming across to me as a cross between 2001: A Space Odyssey and Alien. Here's the movie's synopsis, if I haven't already posted it on here.

Ridley Scott, director of “Alien” and “Blade Runner,” returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.”

Also, they recently released several official screenshots too. :)

I'll be totally honest: I might end up being more excited for Prometheus than any of the other big blockbusters coming out next year. This movie looks intense. o_o

Re: Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" (AKA Alien Prequel/Spinoff)

The movie looks amazing. So excited for this movie, but god, the wait! :<

Haha, as much as I'm anticipating this movie, it feels like 30 years too late. He really should've done sci-fi movies throughout his career. Nonetheless, I'm also excited as hell for the other sci-fi movies he's got planned -- The Forever War and Brave New World. @_@

IDK about that. I'm of the opinion that Ridley Scott matured a lot more as a director by doing all these different types of films over the years, and hopefully that maturity will reflect with the skills he already had with his previous sci-fi films. Prometheus looks amazing. <3

I sort of agree. I'm not saying he should've focused solely on sci-fi, just that he should've gone back to it once in a while. He hasn't done a single movie in that genre for about 30 years, he's old as fuck now, I just hope he doesn't kick the bucket before the other movies are made. I don't think any of his other movies reach the level of Blade Runner, and that was in his prime; it's obvious sci-fi is his place. I also don't think he'll be able to reach that level with Prometheus, but regardless of that I'm anxious to see it.

IDK. I personally prefer Alien over Blade Runner, and to be quite honest, Prometheus looks like something that, if done right, I'd prefer even over Alien. That's the thing, we all have different opinions at the end of the day. :)
