Prometheus: In Greek mythology, Prometheus (Greek Προμηθεύς, "forethought")[1] is a Titan, the son of Iapetus and Themis, and brother to Atlas, Epimetheus and Menoetius. He was a champion of mankind, known for his wily intelligence, who stole fire from Zeus and gave it to mortals.[2] Zeus then punished him for his crime by having him bound to a rock while a great eagle ate his liver every day only to have it grow back to be eaten again the next day. His myth has been treated by a number of ancient sources, in which Prometheus is credited with Ė or blamed for Ė playing a pivotal role in the early history of mankind.

http://en.wikipedia....wiki/Prometheus

A team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

EGE: The official synopsis from Fox says that this revolves around the ďAlien GodsĒ, the ďSpace JockeyĒ from the first film.

RS: Yeah, so there you have that. I was always amazed that, I mean, Iíve only done two science-fictions, but I was always amazed that no one asked who the hell the Space Jockey was. He wasnít even called the Space Jockey. During the film they started to call it the Space Jockey. I donít know who started that one off. I always thought it was amazing that no one ever asked who he was, and why was he there? What was all that about? I sat thinking about this for a while and thought, well, thereís a story! And the other four [films] missed it! So, here it is.

...looks like Ridley Scott is denying its a movie baseed within the "Alien Universe" despite the fact it has many linkages to the original Alien movie. Good to see Giger working on this movie in a small way when he was overridden in Aliens / Alien3 for design work by Tom Woodruff.

Weird that hes denying it too considering thats almost the exact same design of the spaceship that "started it all". And the large cradle looking thing within the ship.

In your quote he's confirming that it's a part of the Alien Universe.  There was a lot of confusion about it because first it was, then it wasn't then it kind of was, now it definitely is.  Hence the Jockey/Engineer, the designs, and Weyland Industries (before the Yutani merger) all being present.  Although this might be more of a spin off than a prequel, but it's still within the Alien Universe.

Witness the Epicness in 1080p




@Nemesis:
It pretty much is the Alien universe, after seeing the trailer. And I gotta say I'm glad it isn't just another Alien film, but something above that, something more subtle and bigger scaled. I must also admit, as an Alien fan, that the alien creature was never my main aspect about the original film. It was the mystery, the dense atmosphere (during the whole film), the ultra-realistic style, pretty much everything.
"Alien" defined Ridley Scott as my idol of a director. I'm not fan of actors, but of creative minds like Scott. Go Brits.

With rumours adrift that Sigourney Weaver was going to sign up to the next 2 Aliens Prequels...that were/are not prequels that she is signing up for but isnt in one of the movbies thats shes signed to......man the net gets confusing to just get some solid statements of fact!!

....anyway iff she was I was concerened that she was going to be the original Ripley & that the Ripley in Alien was already a clone but just never aware of it...which really would have taken the ###### out of the whole franchise IMHO.

Anyway...Promo..is looking good...hope the storyline & characters hold out rather than just sitting on "of late....FX"  :thumbsup:

@ LED......good n evil Kittehs reminds me more of "Clash of the Titans"...now show me a kitteh with a facehugger  :sweating:

"JOYGASM"

Loved it.....spot on pulling Weyland Industries into play!! They tried it in AvP but TBH.. I dont think it worked.

Quote

The overall features which make "Alien" so Alien will be easily noticable according to inside sources with minor changes to suit that of the host species; in this case the unfortunate pilot Space Jockey. This follows the original Alien canon of host-dependant characteristics. Aliens born of humans, equal human-Alien crossed byproduct. Aliens born from dogs, equal dog-Alien crossed byproduct. So the fact that an Alien born from the enormous Space Jockey would be larger than that born of a human would make perfect sense.

Quote

Look, Ridley Scott birthed this universe over two decades ago. My job was to sit and listen and to channel, in the same way that a medium does. This was about the ideas that he wanted to convey, and he did not want to come back and do science fiction again unless there was some kind of a philosophical construct to it. Thatís why Blade Runner, which didnít really enjoy commercial success when it first came out, is viewed as a classic, and is still being discussed and dissected: there are these fundamental ideas about humanity, our relationship with technology, the presence of a soul ó those are all the things that drive Blade Runner. Ridley was reaching for the fruit on the tree of knowledge in the ideas that he was having about this movie.

At the same time, there is a line where a movie becomes overtly pretentious. We wanted to stay on the right side of it, because once you cross it, thereís no going back. There had to be a version of this movie that presented big ideas, but didnít really wallow around and spend all itís time basking in the glory of itís own intelligence. We wanted to make an entertaining movie at the same time. Hopefully, itís a hybrid in tone between the original Alien and Blade Runner.

I get the feeling that theres going to be a heavy leaning on the android approach of humans vs androids that existed throughout the aliens movies...just readding about the synonyms between Alien & BladeRunner  :clapping: :clapping:

Nice!

I like the part with the "our first true piece of technology... fire". The film will not be short on eloquence, I guess.
