    This game has been in development for many years, and has had it's release constantly pushed back further and further, i really don't know what to make of all this. I lost interest in this game a long time ago, but the recent trailer looked promising, so i'm gonna wait and see what the reviews say, fingers crossed a demo will be released in the future months. Regarding the space jockey i wouldn't be surprised, if the levels had to be changed to match continuity, as fox is still one of the power houses behind this game. Also it is good marketing to push game sales, bear in mind that's IF all this true, imdb are not well reknown for their accuracy. So let's wait and see.

    PSB: Are you excited to see Prometheus? Will any of the Space Jockey lore hinted at in the film make it into Aliens: Colonial Marines?

    RP:
    I’m very excited about Prometheus. 20th Century Fox invited us to read the script and check out production and ACM’s director, Brian Martel, had a discussion with Ridley Scott about the matter years and years ago, so it’s been a really interesting seat for us on this one. A bunch of our guys went out to read the script a while back. I chose to decline because I didn’t want the spoilers — I can’t wait to see the final film! Ridley is such a master storyteller and filmmaker and I’m thrilled that he’s spending some more time in science fiction. Oh, and I haven’t dodged your real question. Yes, ACM will bring you inside The Derelict on LV-426. I don’t want to spoil anything, so I’ll leave it at that!

    I have not seen the ariticle but I think it is prudent to be wary of anything on that site until the movie is released. This is the disclaimer on some of their pages;

    The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff

    I think we will see what came out of the space Jockey in prometheus... If so then that is the most likely tie in, in my opinion. Oh and it doesn't have to be the space jockey in the derelict we see in prometheus. It just needs to be a space jockey impregnated by an alien.

    That is my take on it  ;)
  6. LarsVader
    Like I just said, it might be simply related to the derelict because further details and explorations of the insides should be Prometheus territory by now.
    The connection might just be an avoidence of contradictions.

    IMDB have an article up claiming there will be a link to Prometheus in Aliens: Colonial Marines. Haven't seen a mention on this awesome forum yet.

    Interested if this turns out to be true. The problem is how can they link a narrative set on LV-426 to a movie that does not go anywhere near said planet and occurs around 100 years in the past? If there are links, nobody will be able to recognize them before the release of Prometheus anyway, unless they specifically refer to known characters in the new film, as in:

    Marine A: "Yo, you remember what happened to the crew of the Prometheus right?".
    Marine B: "Yeah man, that shit was nasty. Hooah!".

    -Chris.

    'Only movie tie-in' - I sincerely hope there'll be much more than this and the
    DVD/blu-ray/soundtrack. I love these 'The Art Of...' books, already having the 'Bond' and Avatar'
    ones, but they don't really go in depth. Yes, I know the extras on the DVD/blu-ray will have all that,
    but I like to have a large book to hold and not a remote, y'know? I want to read a novelisation as well
    as numerous other books and yes, as somebody mentioned, a 'Metal Hurlant' or 'Heavy Metal' version
    of this and a Giger art contribution special would be a dream for me. The expected scope of this film
    demands a lot of peripheral reading merchandise.

    I don't recall anyone saying that WON'T happen...
    From your own post,

    To be fair, that is only up-to-and-including the film's release...if it's as GOOD as I believe it will be, there WILL be more.

    Much like the original film.

    (...and a lot of those will be cash-in crap...like the original...)

    A good making-of on a bluray/dvd could be sufficient.

    Don't know how big the merch market is for Prometheus.
    I personally would like happy-meal spacejockeys, just for the fun of it.
    But I doubt that. Depends on the pg rating?

    Tron:Legacy for example had an awfull art-of book and the making-of book has been cancelled.
    The extras on the home media releases where ..ehm... let's say scarce.
    And I recently found out that all the cool behind the scenes stuff has been released in the shape of an iPad-app!
    This thing is über cool: storyboards, model-turnarounds and hundreds of concept-art pieces.
    Short: This app should have been a book or a disc-bonus.
    And we all know what happens to all the stuff when disney decides to take it offline.

    And Tron got an "the-full-story-app" instead of a novelisation.

    As cool as the stuff in the app is I hope the marketing for Prometheus will be a little less blindly futuristic in it's aproach.

    I wonder why there's only one tie-in book? Obviously I don't want anything that isn't serious, and certainly not any kind of fast food promotion.

    Maybe a definitive 'Making Of Prometheus' as opposed to The Art Of?
  12. Mr. Clemens
    Exciting to get this book, but I was also really hoping we'd see Alan Dean Foster come back for a novelization. I guess in the era of the home theatre, novelizations are a thing of the past. :(

    Still, I'll be buying this!
  13. Glaive
    I wish there was a novelisation, and well a Giger's Prometheus book although it seems that there might not be as much actual Giger in the movie as we might hope for

    I don't recall anyone saying that WON'T happen...Maybe we'll get a comic book 'Metal Hurlante-style', a 'Giger's: Prometheus', 'The Prometheus Photonovel', and 'Blood and Acid: The Making of Ridley Scott's Prometheus'...

    ...one can but hope!
  14. LarsVader
    Maybe Giger will go and release some portfolio or such thing on his own, like in the past?

    And I too wonder if a slipcover justifies a $40 price difference, or is there more to it?
    Cause if there is no difference in content there is no way I'll pay 40 more for just a cardboardbox.
