    Apparently that scene (photo) also was included in the video montage at Comic-Con, and evoked the feeling of Ripley blasting the alien out the Narcissus' airlock...

    I extrapolate (not always successfully) that the Jockey's are using rapid decompression or sudden total gravity loss to thwart the thief...

    But, as you say, maybe not.
    It's fun to fanticise, though...

    The helicopter looks too 'today' to be something in the Alien universe (even if this is only 80 or 90 some odd years in the future)

    Plus those look like portable trailers ... on the left (again, looking very much 'today' in standards)

    I thought the Iceland shoot was for the the Prologue to life on Earth sequence, and that the fossil dig scene was to take place somewhere else.

    Anyone know if that's really from the movie? :-\

    are you serious? that's certainly NOT from the movie itself but a snapshot of the site that they're staying at for the time of filming. you will neither see any of these helicopters or people with security vests running around in the movie.

    Maybe a ship is taking off... Maybe its a windy planet...Maybe its a wind storm...Could be a lot of things. And upon comparisson, that helmet's nose is still curious, but I agree the size doesnt make any sense unless she were to swell a LOT.

    Sorry if I am like the hundreth bloke to tell you this...but you mispelled John Hurt's character's name.  His last name was spelled "Kane".  So, your username should be KanesSon.  Again, apologies if this has already been pointed out.

    Unless, of course, you were going for a Biblical reference, in which case your username should be "Enoch".   ;)

    who said that there is a storm in that scene, maybe its just blurry or somekind of a light

    You can be right here. In fact I remember seeing the Predators trailer where at the end the main character gets targeted by multiple lasers, while in the movie it was actually just one. That proves that the promotional material (even the video footage) can be altered to serve marketing purposes.

    I have said in a previous post, that the planet's landscape in the picture doesn't seem to be LV-426. The way the terrain looks and the complete absence of the rock pillars and arches indicates that this is another planet. The absence of the rocky formations can also be seen in the leaked production/set photos.

    Therefore, the "storm" can be just added to the promotional material for people to recognize and say "hey, this looks just like the planet back in the old days". I might be wrong here, and I wish I was, but I do not fully trust the promotional material. Images can be altered, so can videos, to give us a different impression.

    I am not saying that the photo is bad in any shape or form, just that we should take into consideration the facts stated above.

    Yeah I'd go along with that. To be honest the "storm" thing was just a passing thought, I was more focused on the idea this might be part of a crashed or damaged ship, based on the prop from an earlier spoiler looking frayed and like part of some landing gear or a clamp, but I'm convinced the prop and the area I indicated (previous page) are the same thing at least.

    ....what I'm wondering now is, are we seeing something from a distorted angle, someone who is 'maybe' falling... it's possible I guess.
    As long as I can remember from the fooatge at the con, the guy is walking and then he starts to lose gravity, and he 'slowly' starts floating to the left in the position he is in that picture. An epic shot I have to remark.

    If there's a loss of gravity then where's the storm coming from??   Sorry but don't buy that one....yet!   
    I can't make you believe my words, that's for sure. I am just telling what I saw from the footage. ;)

    I think that prop is the one above the one you highlighted there on the official pic. The one that is hanging.


    If you mean THIS then gotta say I'm inclined to agree with you 100%...

    Yup, I meant that one. It looks exactly the same to me.

    The only thing people might question is the inset picture, which is clearly landing gear of some kind, is frayed at the top but not in the offical photo. This is why I believe the official photo is distorted, or angled, and the inset pic is of landing gear seperated after the vehicle 'crashed'  .... perhaps???

    i'm not getting too excited because of the first pic.the movie is still filming so the real cgi worl hasn't even begun.the cgi in the picture is cheap.it's probably something done for the promotion and won't be in the movie

    But you never saw the dog alien as a tiny little Rottweiler thing, why should the Space Jockey alien be so big?  Just a continuity error.

    So there's been talk about the Space Jockey actually being somebody wearing a 'SUIT' by Ridley and Theron mentioned seeing her skin taken off and her bones revealed and having her suit taken off. She refers to her character as a suit, so I was thinking about er being a business woman AND AN ANDROID. Then others have mentioned, and I agree that IN THE FIRST PIC its obviously a woman in the outfit. Now I know this is a stretch, but does anybody else see the vague impression of an elephantine tube coming from the mouth part of the helmet in the first leaked photo?

    So all that conjeture aside, apart from the fact that we can see a person in that pic, does anyone see what I mean about the helmet and tube looking similar to the Space Jockey?

    I'm am pretty sure she meant that in a figurative way, that we will see deeper into her character and "what she is all about.""

    That is like 20 or 50 times the size of a human, how could a chestburster make a hole that big through the Space Jockey's chest/ or suit?  :o

    I suppose by taking on genetic traits from it's host. I believe one of the original scripts for Alien stated that we were supposed to see a second petrified figure, at around 15ft tall, standing unnoticed in the shadows. It probably intended for this to be the alien which burst from the Space Jockey.

    Looks really nice. Does the suit look like the exact one from Alien (1979) I know it's a prequel but they do look really similar. I never watched the Alien (1979) movie because they don't sell them where I live.
