  1. Never say no to Panda!

    might be worth putting it through a reverse image search

    http://f.666kb.com/i/bzf1j0wk10kbb3c2d.jpg

    Those search engines suck cause it's on this site:
    http://www.michaelfassbender.org/expressen.html

    There is a nice collection of those old Prometheus images, good quality:
    http://www.michaelfassbender.org/btsprm.html

    But IF this site is the only source then it could be new...or it was well hidden for a few years.
    So Lindelof finally build a time machine to pick up some 70s porn moustache dudes!

    greetings

    I know as much about this pic as you do. Just speculating here.
    I am very unsure about the time of the happenings in this image, 1979 or 2011?

    At first to me it looks almost exactly like the entry passage to the '79 derelict.
    But wasn't that slightly tilted with an uneven floor and had no curve at its end?
    And as much as I am informed the tunnel was improvised in '79 from salvaged jockey-room/silo-room parts
    because they ran out of money,
    this would mean that the white-ish plaster bones elements should already be painted and more attached to another at this point.
    To me it looks like they have been cast brand new.

    The giant black backdrop in the back reminds me a lot on the ones used on the Prometheus set, I think it looks neater than the ones used back in '79.

    I see no flared pants and no silly hair.
    The guy in the foreground has slightly longer hair which is still quite fashionable for todays standards.
    And wearing a hooded shirt over a jacket looks more modern to me.

    The ladder looks just like the one in other Prometheus pics (and thausends of other productions).

    But what convinces me most is the overall image quality,
    the contrast, the colours, the noise, even the lens flare scream cell phone picture to me.
    I think a scanned old image/negative would have quite a different feel to it.

    Besides I never even remotely saw a picture like this or even of the derelict tunnel set, have you?

    Yes, much more gigeresque details than on the "temple" interiors in my opinion.
    More like the entrance passage of the derelict in ALIEN.
    Maybe the upward tilted corridor indicates this, since we know that the (then not so derelict yet) derelict will be standing vertical at some point in Prometheus.

    Apprarently, the synopsis is fake, created by a poster on imdb in August, but it pre-dates these pictures, and contains this:
    The crew sets about attempting to repair the Prometheus, while Elizabeth Shaw leads a recon expedition to investigate nearby structures, which turn out to be a cavernous Engineer temple. Inside the temple, Shaw’s team encounters a bizarre BIO-BRAIN, a biomechanical humanoid face set within a towering pillar, as well as thousands of seemingly primitive URNS. David takes several of the urns back to the vessel for analysis.

    Looks like the full plot-point synopsis on aintitcool was correct

    Based on what exactly?

    It mentions the humans coming face-to-face with a giant human-looking..erm...face, inside the "engineers" mothership.
    A bit too coincidental. Plus, the plot breakdown you can find the link to on aintitcool, does sounds brilliant.

    That info has been around long, long before the AICN thing. Does anybody here actually frequent AICN talkbacks? They're troll fests. How anyone can take it seriously really stumps me.

    Ahh..that I didn't know! Either way i'm pretty excited by this but hope the real thing isn't too far off from that synopsis!

    Ive adjusted the light level or whatever its called in English.
    You can see things more clearly impressive found of you guys.
    so the decapitated Space jockey.

    Seems strange that theyd release a picture showing this ?

    these pictures, and this one in particular will have been chosen very very carefully to get us excited and talking.

    thanks

    Yes,
    makes me wonder what decapitates a jockey? i think we will see new terror beings in Prometheus.

    With all this talk of Gods, I wonder if the giant head acts as the Holy Grail and the Space Jockey got decapitated by a big buzz saw for failing to "kneel before God"...


    ... Nah. :D
    No the jockey was laying on his side.  ;)

    I can confirm the initial discovery happens in 2058 and then moves ahead in time.  Don't know what happens for sure, like if the plots that had that date are 100% correct or not.  From going over them I can almost guarantee people have pieces of the puzzle and are trying to fill in the rest like I am.  I didn't try to write a full synopsis though because it seems obvious not one of the leaks has the full story.

    I can confirm a couple more things too.  Only a couple, so I have no real clue about the whole plot.  But we already knew Weyland was involved from the logo.  It just doesn't seem like there's been one with that date that screams completely true yet.  At least by the time you make it to the end.  Some of them start ok, and are similar, but most likely no one has the ending right.  Some are just way too short for a three hour movie, even if they've left parts out.

    Looks like the full plot-point synopsis on aintitcool was correct, which means I've spolied the entire film for myself..  :-\
    It sounds fantastic though...and gives some real gravitas behind the origins of the Alien we know and love.
    Space Jockeys sound super-scary in some of the scenes....if it's pulled off, Prometheus should be fairly unnerving.

  12. Wobblyboddle77
    The Scope on the size of that head in the backround is massive on these pics and body on the floor is just epic, makes me wonder how big the jockeys will be and how they will behave towards the humans and synthetics.
  13. Glaive
    Exactly...examine the teasers/trailers from the first and second films...these are the scenes we're 'allowed' to see; and I'm pretty sure are a DELIBERATE attempt to connect it to the franchise.

    We're through the looking-glass here, people. This flick is going to fly off on a tangent none of us realised (I hope...). :o

    I thought that, but you'd have to ask why have a statue laid on the ground, in what looks to be a symmetrical room. Also this room can be seen from another angle, there are no statue's anywhere else.

    Unless it's a statue that's been pushed over.

    I'm thinking precisely that. Damaged. Possibly even due to the exploration, itself. Assuming what I think is the 'chopped' portion of the arm is precisely that, it's a lot more like a statue. If you cut off an actual creature's limb, the resulting open wound wouldn't stay as open and flat as that.

    If anything, the style is possibly influenced by that scene in the TV movie adaptation of 'The Tommyknockers', before all the creatures reawaken.

     ;D

    Hmmm, I dunno, I don't think the head's big enough. But it might be the angle.

    :_)

    By the way, I don´t know if anybody brought this up yet.

    What is this shiny little thing that looks like something stabbed on the "whatever the hell this creature is" ?

    PD: Yess guys, you guessed it, I work as a graphic designer.
