Aliens Spotted on Prometheus Set

AlienPrequelNews have posted some interesting details on Prometheus. First, there was a call sheet which listed the following actors and their characters: Charlize Theron (Vickers), Idris Elba (Janek), Emun Elliot (Chance) and Benedict Wong (Ravel). Their source also saw three aliens and gave details about the costumes.

“Though security on the set is very tight with the good weather, dock doors have been open and cast and crew have been enjoying lunch outdoors. I can confirm seeing 3 aliens having lunch. Not the whole costume but blueish costumes and the unmistakable heads hanging around their shoulders”

“The alien heads were the same shape but no markings, only a plane bronze colour. As for the suits black boots and shoulder pads the rest was a Chelsea blue body suit could be for SFX, all the sets around the back of the bond stage have huge green chromokey maybe that’s a clue. I have witnessed foam cut outs of unmistakable aliens all cut in half lengh ways so they could be in the floor walls etc and very much from the original film.”

“I managed to enter the bond stage one weekend when no filming was sheduled all I can say is there is a very very long tunnel that leads to an enormous structure at the back of the stage which is the same height as the stage and probably extends out another 200 ft. All of these sets are surrounded by wood foam and scaffold so sid not see inside, I think this is were the Space Jockey set is.”

Thanks to Darkoo for the news.

    Is still on set. Filming consoles over lunch, then escape pod stuff. Now they decide to do more console shots at the end of the day. It looks like we will be shooting until 8 ish

    Is on the aliens set again this week as stand by. I also have to get the space suit brackets wired up, but I can't do that when I'm on set rather than the workshop. Lol

    Reading back over his statuses he's done a lot of work on the consoles in the movies. Yay for practical.

    So it's a film, set in the ALIEN world, not about the events leading up to the happenings on the Nostromo, but a new tale entirely. It's like they're making a new alien series completely divorced from the original series. I'd say this is definitely a reboot of sorts.

    I agree with you. I think EVEN that this film may leave things open for them to REMAKE a version of ALIEN with the new expanded mythology. While also, setting up the original films. That way if it is unsuccessful it serves as an ALIEN, or the studio can have the option of making a second reboot of ALIEN, or even just say to a screenwriter, "Make us a soup! Write the next ALIEN film."

    This would explain the whole "pushing the boundaries of what TENT POLE Sci-Fi can be..."

    I would love it also, if Ridley did more to connect BLADE RUNNER to ALIEN.

    My mom is really into the Alien films, she's the reason I saw ALIEN and ALIENS at age 8, and a big part of why I love the series as much as I do. So when I told her, "Hey guess what? Ridley Scott is directing a new alien movie!" she was very excited. Whenever I visit her, she asks me if I heard any new news on the film.

    I've gone from telling her, "It's an Alien prequel, with redesigned Aliens!" to, "It's just a film set in the Alien universe, with probably no actual Aliens in it, maybe the space Jockeys".  Then I say, "Well, apparently not only does it have aliens in it, but they seem to be very close to the original alien... and there is alot of them". Now when she asks, I just say "I have no idea what they are doing with the movie, the info I get seems to do a 180 every month."

    I'm trying to get hyped and excited, I just need to know what it is I'm getting hyped and excited for...

    If we get the Alien in anything that's not retarded, I'm going to explode with joy.  Ridley, save the poor Alien.  It went from being the horrifying vent-rapist we love to the rape victim.  Fox put it up on the pinball machine like Indy in that South Park episode.  That's literally how I feel.

    I Can't see it myself. I Can't remember a movie that's ever been advertised as something it's not. Intrigue only works if it's fresh - Super 8 or Cloverfield. 

    A lot of movies are advertised as something there not. Black Swan was advertised as a Horror. A lot of movie plots are advertised as being different too.

    That's not the same thing. Showing a trailer of a new sci-fi epic without showing that it's actually a part of an existing franchise is like having a predator uncloak at the end of Avatar.

    Even if it is, I ask again -  what's the point?

    I get what your saying. I agree though it is stupid. If it has a connection to the franchise they should be proud, not try and hide the fact that it is a Alien prequel.

    I think they are using men in suits for the Xenos but they will be HEAVILY edited using CGI and such. Thats the best way to do it if you ask me. As long as they are closer to the original Xenos (ALIEN, ALIENS) then the retarded ones (A:R,AvP,AvP:R) yet still different to make sense I will be happy.

    true, but it makes sense from a marketing standpoint.

    Only for the first wave of cinema goers. Who then tell their mates it's just another Alien flick.

    The only way they get away with it is by making it an Alien movie without anything familiar, Alien in a different form.
    Harvest script for example.

     

    but if the movies awesome and friends say yeah its another alien flick but its awesome.

    Don't get me wrong I like the whole idea,  I just think putting the original Alien in this is not a smart move.

    given the quality of the avp series the brand itself is a little tarnished, maybe Ridley wants to distance this movie from it, hence why there are conflicting reports.
  13. Highland
    What I don't get is why be so vague with everything?

    They can't be trying to fool the Alien fans, because realistically, there are not enough of us to give a shit about. Which can only mean they are trying to keep it under wraps to the general audience - who ironically probably don’t give a shit if it’s an Alien movie or another Sci-Fi piece?

    It's either a Alien "piece" or it's not. I fully expect to see Scott in a Alien (blue) Harvest T-shirt.

    one thing to add though - this could be part of the campaign trying to mislead people. Adding some true information about new cast members just makes it seem more legit while the whole part about the aliens sitting outside having lunch could be false.

    Misleading the public by telling them it isn't an Alien prequel makes sense (particularly as Damon Lindelof of LOST fame is involved), building up a sense of disappointment only to make everyone mega-hyped when it turns out to be an Alien film.

    Misleading the public by making them believe that it is an Alien prequel, when it is in fact not one, is not the kind of mis-leading campaign that any sane and officially connected PR person would perform.

    i.e. Either this report is true or is made up by someone not involved with the actual production.  I can almost guarantee that no one official is leading people to falsely believe that Aliens are involved if they are not.

    The way I see it, its just what Ridley said it was. It started off as a prequel, but morphed into something new. Its a standalone piece in the same universe that, despite taking place before the first film, isn't really a prequel.

    i guess there's been far too much confusion already and we'll only know for sure what this movie is about when it's released. well played, mr scott ;)
