    I think it is more like there are suits for scientists and explorers. Which they are basically in Prometheus. In Alien, they werent geared to be doing what they are doing in Prometheus. That is why the suits look totally different. I mean they were rough neck miners. Nothing more. They never intended on going to discover a new species you know. I also think that is one of the things that made the cast of Alien so great. They didnt belong there. They were not prepared to deal with the hand that was being dealt to them. Pretty great idea really lol... Anthony

    I'm really loving the suits, they look awesome
    Looks like mass effect suits

    Noomi Rapace Looks freaking beautiful there

    It does look like mass effect. Ridley scott is going for a more tighter fit with the suits than last time. On alien the suits were a little baggy. I think noomi rapace is very attractive. She has beautiful legs, and I mean beautiful. Swedish women (like russian women) are beautiful. It looks like she's holding a helmet. The yellow glare from the interior of the helmet is awesome. I loved the suits from alien. I always thought they looked better than real astronaut suits. I could be wrong but the prometheus suits look like they're designed for combat. The whole design of the suits scream awesome. I'll definitely be doing more research on these suits.

    absolutley scientifically plausible, presuming the fact that that they are on a planet/planetoid/moon that has a substantial atomsphere (although not necessarily breathable).

    The behind the scenes shot of the door opening and blasting gas suggests that there is a breathable atmosphere, as in that shot and the promo stills there are humans without helmets on. This new still may not reflect what happens in the film, but there are other shots that show helmet-less spacemen.

    Or, y'know, they're not space suits, as people have suggested before.

    Space-suits are, for the moment, bulky because there's a lot of shit in them. They have to be pressurized, they have to maintain temperature, etc. If the planet they're on doesn't have too dense or thin an atmosphere and has reasonable temperatures, all they need to do is protect themselves from the elements and supply their own air.

    Think above-ground SCUBA suits, not space suits.


    This is absolutely correct.  With NASA EVA space suits (operating in pure vacuum) the internal suit atmospheric pressure is around 5 psiA (normal sea level pressure is 14.7 psiA), and 100% pure oxygen.  Whatever the movement of the "suit", the aim is to maintain a constan volume.  If the external pressure is NOT vaccuum, but rather has some type of atmosphere (not necessarily breathable), then there will be some external pressure...and the EVA space suit does not necessarily have to be pressurized to the same relative pressure.  In onther words, it the planet has an atmosphere, and the space suit is not working against a "pure" vacuum, then the internal pressure of the suit can remain higher. 

    What that means, is that the EVA suit (in such an evironment), does not necessarily have to be supplied with an "artificial" positive pressure.  This makes it much easier for the EVA suit to be designed around a "mechanical pressure" rather than using internal pressurization.  The "Sci-Fi" nomenclature for such a suit is a "skin suit", which uses some type of elastic pressure to maintain a more or less "constant" pressure against the astronuats skin.  There are prototypes that are actually in development by NASA at this very moment, but research is still ongoing, and is not by all means practical in true vacuum, at this current point in time...although, who knows what the future will bring.  Nevertheless, it is is quite apparent from existing data and research, that a "skin-suit" spacesuit using mechanical pressure would definitely be feasible, in an enviornment that has some type of atmosphere (exerting a given pressure).

    This is a rather long explanation of how the current Prometheus screenshots showing a "skin-suit" type of environmental "EVA" suit is absolutley scientifically plausible, presuming the fact that that they are on a planet/planetoid/moon that has a substantial atomsphere (although not necessarily breathable). Note that this explanation only deals with the partial pressure requirements for humans to function...I am "assuming" that any advance "skin-suit" will have the necessary automatic temperature regulation and built-in radiation attenuation to keep the astronaut protected.

    I don't get the blue and orange Tron-style outfits. I would've liked it more if the suits were grayish white like the Nostromo crew's spacesuits. Also, Noomi looks a little bit too hip to be be square with those bangs and all. I just wished, and hoped, that Scott would go by the same formula as in Alien - unglamorous realism.

    I agree.  Although it's hardly the sort of thing that could potentially ruin the film, it's an irritating design choice in my opinion.  Not just because it's not to my liking stylistically but because it kind of breaks continuity with Alien.

    Also, as much as I admire Neville Page's monster design for Cloverfield, he seems to be a one (or two) trick pony...

    "What's that, you need a monster design for Star Trek?  Sure, here's a recycle of Clover."

    "Hmm, a monster design for Super 8?  I've got it!  We'll shrink Clover down."

    "Oh, you want me to design some space suits and a visor for Prometheus?  No problem, I've got some left over concepts from TRON: Legacy."

    That's why I wear skintight latex to work. I certainly wouldn't want anything that's durable or which will protect me when exploring an alien spacecraft. I'll take my orange stripes, thanks. Blue and orange, not to mention. Even better.

    Totally, too flashy. I don't give a shit if these sleek fashionable space suits and matching Chanel purses are a reality today, I like the bulky, functional look.

    Well its not functional if its bulky is it?

    Well you won't get any argument out of me there.  While I think Charlize Theron is ultra hot, Kate Beckinsale is a classic beauty...timeless, kind of like Grace Kelly, or Ingrid Bergman.

    Glad someone understands what I was getting at, yes. :)

    To me, it's like the difference between fashion and style.

    Rose McGowan's another one. Can take on some really superficial roles, but has a very unique visual aesthetic.

    Since I posted a bunch of Charlize Theron pics...I would be remiss, indeed, in my duties if I didn't give equal time to the breathtaking Ms. Kate Beckinsale:

    Indeed, she is one for the ages.

    I'm just saying that, physically, she's never struck me as having a look which seems unique. Something which strikes me as something only she has. Someone like Juliet Landau or Kate Beckinsale has that quality of having a look you can term as iconic - something uniquely them I can't say I've seen on another actress.

    I guess a sort of... Muse-like quality? Something you can't replace by just putting anyone else in the same photographic pose. That's someone I'd be wowed by. I just haven't seen it in CT - and this is totally a personal opinion. Maybe it's the artist in me.

    Acting skill's different. I haven't seen enough things CT has been in to judge that.

    I realize beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and definitely respect your opinion, but damn, if this is what "generic" looks like, then sign my ass up for a WHOLE BUNCH OF GENERIC !! ;D

    And there's nothing wrong with the class of 'generic attractive female'. :)

    MrSpaceJockey and Bayo are correct: the environment suit (I hate that word now!) that Noomi is wearing in this new image is slightly different to all other images and movie clips released thus far. It appears to be slightly less bulky with a less armoured front plate and of course the red lining. The ONLY other scene I can find where the suits are of this design is where Noomi and Theron are running away from the crashing Jockey ship.

    I'm guessing that the suit has gone through a redesign at some point and the final movie is going to use the non-coloured bulky version?

    I am assuming that it's simply another suit.  Fassbender, Holloway, probably retain their promo suits.  I'm guessing the ampule room sequence they use the all-blue one.  This later, towards the end, maybe this is like a emergency suit, which is why it is smaller and lighter, and why Theron uses it in a jiffy.


    EDIT:  And there is even a HEAVIER looking suit with the flamethrower seen in the teaser.  And the Nostromo suits did have colors, it was just hard to see in the planet's atmosphere.  They weren't repainted or anything.

    not at all, thanks. anyway my point was about final product color vs production pics. now i noticed something about this new image. that suit is the same as the one Vickers using on the pod scene, but those arent the same as the ones on the first pic that leaked. why you think is that.
  17. Gash
    about the suits, the same happened with the nostromo suits. they seems gray in the final movie, but if you check some production photos, they are in bright colors, Dallas was blue , Lambert was pink and Kane was yellow. i have no knowledge of movie production but Ridley must have use some filters on cameras and tricks with lightning. i always thought that those spacesuits were all gray or even black.

    Being pedantic I know, but Lambert's suit was blue and Dallas was pink.  ;)

    Watch some of Noomi's other films. She doesn't come across as glamourous very often.
  20. Deuterium
    And on another note, Charlize has kept her great looks as she has aged, unlike (IMHO) for example Cameron Diaz.

    Thanks for putting an image of Diaz playing Vickers in my noggin'...THANKS A LOT!! >:(

    ...anyone got any brain-bleach?

    LOL,

    I was wrong....it was so wrong...I am so sorry   8) ;D



    As far as cleansing your mind, just scroll up and study the pics of beautiful Charlize.  Rinse and repeat until Cameron Diaz is washed from your mind.

    I've genuinely never found her particularly attractive in anything. Always seemed a bit generic, looks-wise.

    To each their own.

    ** EDIT ** I posted this presuming you were speaking of Charlize, not Noomi..

    Do you think she looks a bit like Chrissy Hind (from "The Pretenders")?  :) :P

    Hell YYEEESSS I knew Noomi Rapace reminded me of someone but couldn't think who it was.... cheers Darkoo  :D

    Yeah, that looks great. And the bag is for Jockey head. Look how stupid it was if they find jockeys head and have no container for it  :P

    Hmm, I know what you mean but I really don't see it, how they could have known they were going to find a head, that to me is something they more than likely stumbled on. Mind you, it does raise the question was there SOMETHING they were expecting to find!  Could they have known about the urns perhaps, maybe the star map also revealed what to look for, or are we just reading to much into a coincidence and the carrier was simply for their flash lights??
  24. RoaryUK
    I know I'll get nailed for this, but what the hell, with pictures like that coming out who cares about the movie.  We've already seen what Theron can do on camera, and this is the best image of Rapace yet....SUCH A BABE!!! Shame these are the only ones.... so far!! :P
