It almost seems like the crew go through some kind of transformation.

 
Yeah, I think I'm going to go into radio silence mode on this movie until it comes out.  :magni:

I want too but the speculation is too much fun for a movie like this.

So, this trailer actually showed quite a bit. Here we go:

1. We get to SEE the crash of the Derelict Ship. That's just really cool, since people first caught a glimpse of it in 1979.


2. There's a man in he trailer whose face is undergoing a change. Looks like he turns into this:


3. Now here's where things get ultra interesting. What I think EVERYONE thought was the Pilot-Alien's head is actually a helmet of sorts. (You'll see why I think this in a minute)


4. The Map Room. We see the 'Pilot Chair' rise from this same room during the trailer. NOTE: The person's size here...


5. THE PILOT HIMSELF MAKES AN APPEARANCE! Compare how much bigger he is compared to the human in the picture above. Also, when you see the Pilot-seat rise, there's no head there. (See pic below)


6. See, no head.


Now I wonder why the ship crashes. Until this moment I assumed it was because of The Pilot, er The Space Jockey, got Facehugged or lost control of the ship while a Chestburster tore through him.

So, in Prometheus, the Helmet is taken off the Space Jocket/Pilot. Ultimately it's returned as the crew of the Nostromo find it in Alien.

Thank you for posting these. My heart started beating fast because of all of these. I'm very much excited for this movie even moreso now.

New image of Rapace

At the end of time, a moment will come when just one man remains. Then the moment will pass. Man will be gone. There will be nothing to show that we were ever here... but stardust.

Weyland Industries TED 2023 Convention Trailer

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpYUW0ekPSA&list=UU-a8YPjQsLywVqBzVelFJZg&index=1&feature=plcp

Watching this trailer conjured up the last scene in AvP:R, the one with Mrs. Yutani. *EYE ROLL* I'm still mad those AVP movies are technically canon.  :mozgus:

Color me psyched.

I don't recall that last scene, Proj. I guess I'll re-watch the movie in the next few weeks *sigh*

This Guy Pearce clip just shows that the AVP movies are not cannon. Remember Lance as Weyland in the first AVP?

He sounds a lot like John Hurt ;)

yea I was hoping he'd have a bigger role but after seeing him as Weyland I guess it will be a short, but memorable one.

In the trailer, there's an old man in a wheelchair, might be him. Since the mission is 50y after this clip.

Yea I was wondering at what point this clip was suppose to take place. I really like this clip. Guy Pierce sells it so well. It would be cool if they released more promotional clips of this quality that weren't actually in the movie.

It does give one pause to reflect on the fact we're talking about a has-been going back to a well that's long since been poisoned. Perhaps our optimism should be more the cautious variety. After all, you can't go home again, step in the same river twice, etc.

So a preview for a trailer is annoying, but screenshots, plot tidbits, and all that shit is not? I don't get all the complaint about "trailers for trailers". It's just a tease, like everything else. Gets people talking. Isn't more annoying than any other form of publicity.

Has-been? Who nowadays can deliver a movie like this? If Ridley misses, no one could've done better.

If James Cameron had the helm, I'd be down. Despite his lackluster stories, he's still a damn fine director.

I wouldn't call Scott a has-been but I wouldn't really say if he can't do it nobody can either. It's somewhere in between. I am cautious because Scott has been hit and miss for the last 20+ years and his films range from one extreme to another. However, from what I've seen of Prometheus so far I'm confident this will be a good one. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. And honestly, it's been so long since he has done a proper a sci-fi film that nobody is in a position to say what he is or isn't capable of for this type of movie. If Alien and Blade Runner are anything to go by he knows what he's doing. And it does look good right?

Basically we just won't know until we know.

Cameron is a cheap thrills director, and he's the best at that. The best at blockbuster entertainment. But he's not in Scott's league. I mean, the guy made the two best sci-fi movies of the last 35years. Nothing that Cameron did comes close (Aliens and Terminator are his best and look like made-to-tv movies compared to Alien and Blade Runner).
Still, of course i have my reservations, mainly because of Lindelof.

You know who else probably isn't in 1982 Ridley Scott's league? 2012 Ridley Scott. My point before was the flip side of those movies being two of the best sci-fi films of the last 35 years is that he made them 30+ years ago. Since then I'm not as enamored with his work. I'm intrigued of course, but I think people are setting themselves up for disappointment if they go into Prometheus like it's really the next sci-fi movie from the brilliant young talent that made Alien and Blade Runner, as if this was filmed in 1984 directly following them but was lost. Unfortunately, any return to form he has in this film will more likely take the form of his directorial work in the last decade, not the 80's. That man no longer exists. Cameron is an apt parallel in that people were hoping Avatar was going to be something it wasn't, some epic blast from his past, because they ignored what he'd done since, and so we ended up with a movie far more Titanic than it was Terminator. Needless to say, I'm glad Russell Crowe wasn't cast in this film.

Maybe Scott from the 80s. Scott's recent movies make Uwe Boll look like a fucking genius.
