Prometheus Trailer

Looks promising and Mr Scott has a good reputation for being a perfectionist!

I'm having a REALLY hard time getting over the space jockey redesign.

 

I can get past the difference in arm length between the two. The one in the trailer looks more like a person in a suit, where as in Alien, the jockey was completely, well, alien.

 

But what really gets me is we now have a SUIT.

 

This thing feels ORGANIC.

If only you added a 'Prometheus' Space Jockey to see the difference...

There aren't any stills of it yet that I can see on a quick search. It's in the video.

Oh, I guess it wasn't on your video...

 

Here's the guy.

Different video showing the 'rib' things to be a part of the chair, clamping the suit person in at 2:12-2:13

 

 

edit:

Also in the IMAX one at ~1:01 showing the rib things opening.

Sure, two different things. In the original the 'nose' part of the thing is connected to the rib bone, and that's just not in the song they're singing, so to speak.

 

I'll forgive them that if they deliver up 90 minutes of viable entertainment. I'm thinking of taking the workers to see it, depending on the reviews.

I see what you mean now.

But if this movie is supposed to be a prequel to 'Alien', perhaps the 'Jockey' wasn't dead yet in 'Prometheus'?

It's not specifically a direct prequel, but 'in the same universe'. It's clearly the same ship they find in Alien, and the space jockey chair is the same. The Jockey himself is just...off.

 

I'll still go see it, but I'm rather reserved about my expectations.

That's a reasonable philosophy to have in this day and age, but if Ridley sells out then I'll lose all hope! I'm cautiously optimistic he'll do the right thing.....

The Song!

 

 

...everybody now...

 

The nose bone is connected to the rib bone, the rib bones connected to the chair thing, the chair things connected to the big ship, which was in the movie...
